Maliko Run:  9-Miles of Downwind Paradise

Maliko Gulch hosts a multitude of outstanding paddling events, including canoe, surfski, SUP and prone. It is considered the gateway to big ocean adventure and a body of water the Hawaiians consider sacred and to be respected.

In this short video, Josh Riccio, an M2O champ, rides his F-One 14′ DW Race Pro, dancing on the waves with the ability of a cat. Filmed by friend and fellow waterman, nalu_Sampson67 who slides along behind & next to him to capture this incredible footage from an amazing day.

Definitely a course to put on your bucket list.  There are plenty of guides on Maui to take you on your 1st Maliko Run if you ask nicely and remain respectful. Check out Suzie Cooney of Suzie Trains Maui for ‘commuter tips’ on the Maliko Run. Always give thanks to the water, first.  Our life force and blood.

Evelyn O’Doherty
Evelyn O'Doherty, owner & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0, worked her way up the ranks in the world of stand up paddling. A former surfer gone rogue, Evelyn stepped onto a SUP for the first time in 2009 when a plaguing neck injury kept her out of the water from surfing. Discovering the core benefits and expanded perspective on the water that stand up paddling brings, Ev immediately was hooked. She became a strong SUP racer in the North East and a year-round SUP surfer, gathering multiple top brand sponsorships including becoming a team rider for Starboard SUP and a national ambassador for Kialoa, as well as celebrating all aspects of the sport with additional brand ambassadorships including lululemon athletica, Clif Bar, Cobian, Kaenon & Indo Board. Her love of watersports and commitment to advocacy in preserving our marine environments led to a short film made with The Nature Conservancy as part of their Clean Water initiatives on Long Island, NY, called "A New Perspective". Evelyn just keeps paddling. Today, she's stepped up to take over the helm at Standup Journal after having worked for the magazine for 2 years as senior online editor. Her dedication and belief in the power of print to immerse readers in the watersports they love even if they don't have access to the water in a daily existence plus a powerful desire to spotlight the amazing people doing rad sh*t on the water is what drives her vision for Standup Journal 2.0. Evelyn welcomes the conversation about how to make the magazine benefit as many people as possible and encourages feedback, letters to the editor and communication at editor@standupjournal.com . Now, as owner/publisher for Standup Journal., Evelyn continues to live in East Hampton NY where she has daily access to the water. When the swell is working, you can find her in Montauk rattling around in her Ford Ranger surfboards hanging out the back headed for points East.
