Lean Against The Wind

Lean Against The Wind

Conquering the Mount Everest of canoe racing—a 45-mile stretch of stacked waves, crashing currents and blistering winds off the coast of Hawaii—is just one way 12-time Molokai OC-1 World Champion and outrigger canoeist Lauren Spalding has distinguished herself. Add Olympian and working parent to the list, and it’s safe to say she’s fully inherited her father’s legendary, push-the-limits fervor.

Director Biography - Keith Malloy

Keith hails from a family of accomplished surfers and remembers getting pushed into his first waves at the age of 4 years old. Surfing allowed Keith to travel the world and get a behind the scenes look at film making, often as the subject on-screen. For some reason, publications love to call Keith “a man of few words.” Not one to brag about his own accomplishments, Keith likes nothing more than telling stories of real people doing incredible things, knowing they would never do it for themselves. He is the award-winning director of “Come Hell or High Water” and “Fishpeople” and lives with his wife and two daughters on the Central Coast.
