Danny Ching, who is a resident of Redondo Beach in California, paddled into the record books when he won the Steinlager Kaiwi Channel Solo OC1 World Championship, making him the first ever non-Hawaiian paddler to win the thirty two mile race from Molokai to Oahu. Ching finished the competition in three hours, thirty eight minutes and fifty one seconds, which is the second fastest time in the entire eighteen year history of the race. This also leaves him only forty eight seconds short of beating the record.

When he was as young as twenty two, Ching was the number one in California and number three in the world in the most popular outrigger category of the competition: one-man. One man riggers are well known for being twice the speed of a kayak, and Ching took the opportunity to move quickly in his progress in the sport. He learned from his father, a Hawaiian native named Al Ching, who had started the local Lanakala Outrigger Canoe Club, which is now the largest outrigger canoe club in California with more than three hundred members.
