A Look at Maliko Gulch and the Olukai Ho’olaule’a

There is no better downwind run on Earth than the Maliko Gulch run on Maui’s North Shore. Paddle west to the Kanaha Beach Park or go big and catch bumps all the way to Kahului Harbor. Regardless, if the east winds are right, you’ll be gliding the whole way. SUP magazine looks at this magnificent coast run and the Olukai Ho’olaule’a, an event each spring that celebrates paddling and native Maui culture, in this two-part video series by going to the experts who live it every day.

This year, the Ho’olaule’a is the second stop on the newly-formed Champions Tour so check back for live coverage this weekend at SUPthemag.com and follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
