About Menehune Mayhem


On April 18 and 19, 2020 Ian Walsh will host the 17th Annual Ian Walsh Menehune Mayhem at Ho’okipa Beach Park in Maui, HI. This exciting and very anticipated free event promotes surfing, sportsmanship, creativity, scholarship and environmental awareness for the youth of Maui. 


The Menehune Mayhem will see over 400 kids ranging in age from 4 to 17 years old for two days of surfing competition as well as opportunities for creative exploration through art, music, dance, athletics and entertainment. In addition, the Menehune Mayhem also recognizes surfers with outstanding sportsmanship, environmental awareness and awards high school students who demonstrate academic excellence. These initiatives are supported through the Ian Walsh Menehune Mayhem Foundation, whose mission is to support activities and events that encourage the youth of Maui.


Our Mission:

- maximize their potential in surfing, fitness and healthy living

- cultivate their talents in communication through the arts and academics 

- care for and champion the natural environment of their island home 

Our Vision:

To grow our mission beyond the Maui community, ultimately reaching youth globally.


Over the years, the Menehune Mayhem has grown from a small youth surf event to a one-of-a-kind two-day event that brings the community of Maui together and spotlights Maui’s up and coming talent. With the community’s support, the Menehune Mayhem has been able to remain a free event for all those who enter. This event would not be possible without our sponsors and the support of our community.


On behalf of the Ian Walsh Menehune Mayhem Foundation, we ask that the community and individuals alike continue to make a commitment to the Menehune Mayhem as a way to give back to Maui and most importantly to help inspire Maui’s youth to avidly pursue academics, athletics and the arts. Your contribution is essential to the success of the event. All proceeds from this year’s event will go directly to the Ian Walsh Menehune Mayhem Foundation to help maximize the potential of the event.
