The first-ever Hawaii team participated in the National Red Bull Flugtag competition over the weekend.

The competition was held simultaneously in five cities across the nation.

Team Aloha Stadium traveled to Long Beach, Calif. to compete in the human-powered flying event.

The team built a double-hulled canoe, combining tradition with modern technology. The contraption utilized the vessel’s sail as a wing to help guide it through the air.

Although the team didn’t win the competition, they did make Hawaii proud.
