Ekahi Carbon Double Bend Outrigger Paddle

  • Many outrigger paddlers are forgoing the pedals and rudder, and our paddle designer and founder Dave Chun is no exception. His journey into the world of V1 paddling began with the impulsive purchase of a Tiger Canoe Fai 3X after visiting Tiger at his "Up Country" Big Island shop, where livestock are a landmark. After months of prototyping and testing, Dave’s conclusion? A bigger stiffer blade with less angle makes it easier to control the va’a.  And from here the Ekahi (“One”) was born.

    Assembled in USA of domestic and imported parts.
