Mulcoy is a legend in the surf industry, but if you asked him, he’d just say, “Nah, I just love surfing”. He has that mysterious love of solitude, finding the perfect wave and he seems to go where no one else wants to. “The less people the better,” Josh would say. He’s never been after the limelight, but of course that comes with the territory when you’re as talented and likeable as Josh.

Mulcoy’s kitesurfing journey began way back in the beginning, when he first saw Peter Trow tearing the back out of waves way before anyone else new what was going on. Mulcoy saw the comparisons to surfing and jumped right on it. It goes without saying that when a guy like Josh can surf as well as he can, that when he learnt to fly the kite he was going to be one of the best.
