Josh Riccio Glides on the Maliko Run

At first glance, downwinding may not appear to be so difficult. You just paddle with the wind at your back, right? Well, not quite. Large wind swells come from all different angles and if you don’t know what you’re doing, you can easily find yourself in a world of trouble.

One man who certainly does not have that problem is Josh Riccio. Growing up in Maui has allowed him to get plenty of experience completing downwinders, including the famed Maliko Run. To get a glimpse of downwinding done right, check out this POV video of Josh masterfully gliding from bump to bump on the legendary run.
