Annual Olukai Ho’olaule’a @ Maliko Bay

Ho‘olaule‘a – literally, it means “celebration,” but it’s also an expression of gratitude.

Each May, an interpretation of this storied Hawaiian tradition takes place on Maui’s north shore.

The event blends elite competition with family-friendly cultural activities and gathers some of the world’s best SUP, OC1 and OC2 paddlers to race the legendary 8-mile Maliko downwind run.

Friends and families come together to enjoy canoe sailing and surfing, ancient Hawaiian games, traditional luau, hula, and live music.

We take this opportunity to recognize and honor our Ama OluKai Foundation beneficiaries, as the community shares collective gifts of time, energy, and spirit.
