The OluKai Ho'olaule'a two-day ocean festival returns to Kanaha Beach Park, Maui this weekend, May 14th -15th, 2011. The real star of the event? The Maliko downwind run on Maui’s Northshore, an 8-mile sled ride that’s the Grand Canyon or El Capitan of downwind standup paddling. A true classic. Check out the rides in the vid below and find out more about the event here.
