Ohana

                       ohano

Ohana developed the 12’6″ TR (Touring/Race) to be an all around board for any level of paddler who may want to paddle for pleasure or decide to race in its class and be competitive.

The cutting nose entry and stable rail and bottom contours make this shape perform extremely well in rough and windy conditions. Coming in 14′ and 10’6″ models as well.

stay tuned for more new boards coming from BWSC next spring…..

Hybrid Carbon/Fiberglass Paddle by Boardworks.

Description

Affordable Performance – The hybrid construction offers quality and pricepoint

The Boardworks Hybrid Carbon/Fiberglass SUP Paddle features a shaft that is ovalized for a more ergonomic feel, with a reduced diameter that fits a wide range of paddlers and greatly reduces fatigue. The handle is a comfort grip T handle that curves into the palm of your hand. It has excellent strength to weight ratio with performance flex characteristics. The blade has less surface area high up where it passes the rail, with more “meat” in the water where you need it for that extra power in every stroke. The blade width is 8.25″. Available blade colors are Natural Black, Painted Gloss White and Gloss Yellow.
