Le'ahi Double Bend Outrigger Paddle

  • Leahi

    Thoroughly tested and approved by our 'elele in Hawaii and on the mainland. The Leahi was inspired by KIALOA founder Dave Chun.  The Leahi features a one piece triple laminated wood upper bend and grip along with a carbon fiber lower shaft.  Stiff blade construction combined with a new blade shape and 12 degree offset for maximum power transfer and efficiency through the water.

    This option of the Leahi is a fixed length, fully assembled paddle. .   Video: How to Size your Outrigger Paddle.
