From the creator of the Kaku, Kainalu, Pueo and Ehukai comes Kahe Kai by Johnny Puakea. Challenging limitations, Kahe Kai introduces new possibilities in OC1 performance.
From Ehukai, Kahe Kai is a quarter inch wider in the middle of the hull and the volume is further forward, which is designed to get a little more flotation for larger paddlers. An inch was added to the height of the bow to avoid pearling. The seat is wider for comfort, and dropped for stability. The footwell was narrowed and dropped by a few inches for stability. The rocker was taken out of the tail for a more slippery feel in the flat. Finally the rudder was moved up 3 inches for improved control on the bump. A narrow footwell allows blade entry closer to the hull, offering efficiency with each stroke. The Kahe Kai also comes with a footwell cover which sheds water from the footwells.
The Kahe Kai is built with Ozone’s innovative monocoque 100% carbon construction. We are offering the Kahe Kai with Pro Model upgrade option.
