This Kai Wa’a best seller model is a smaller version of the Antares.

The Ares is cut down in size, and slightly modified in the nose and mid section. Antares' popular seat and foot well position remains the same in Ares to achieve maximum comfort. Kai's goal with the Ares was to create a smaller design that could run well in all conditions. Upwind, downwind, and flat water. He made a couple of modifications along the way while going through the prototype phase to finished product. The result is the best yet.

In the surf, the Ares is effortless with full control, which is hard to find in smaller designs. The upwind paddling is smooth and consistent, with easy acceleration in the flat sections. The flat water gets entertaining when surges of ground swell, or residual of back wash, catch the hull and take you for an unexpected glide.

Take the Ares out for a spin and let what you feel be your deciding guide.

Ares is built with Ozone’s innovative monocoque 100% carbon construction. Lighter, stronger, faster.
