In Search of Mana: Talia Decoite

Talia Decoite is one of the world’s best female paddlers. After setting a world record while winning the 32-mile Molokai-2-Oahu race in 2012, Decoite burned out and got sick while training to defend her title in 2013. She pulled out of the race and, in the coming months, rediscovered her joy for paddling.

She faced the channel again in 2014 and came in fifth.

This is a story of love, battling back and finding what makes you happy.
