Foiling SUP history was recently made on the Maliko Run, during the recent Paddle IMUA race sponsored by Bluesmiths. Finn Spencer, SUP champ from Paia, Maui made amazing time from Maliko Bay to the harbor, approximately 10+ miles with a time of 1:10:48. HIs legs were pumping as he caught massive glides smiling all the way.  Check out this video made by Alex Aguera of Go Foil:

Besides Finn’s smashing SUP foiling downwind Maliko Run, it was an exciting race for all disciplines; prone, surfski, outrigger and stand up paddling. Maliko conditions were excellent and many arrived from around the world to partake in Maui’s best community fund raiser of the year to help families and their children with special needs. Money raised allows the children to enjoy a week long camp at Camp IMUA; hosted by many amazing volunteers. Learn more here: http://paddleimua.com/camp-imua/

Maliko was firing with trades in the best direction with gusts up to 30 mph at times.  There was also a decent late NW swell pushing in, creating some BIG drops and glides to be had near the outer reef at Sprecks and some bigger ones near the finish before Pier One. 

Here are a few photos of some of the 111 participating paddlers:
