Ares vs. Ehukai vs. Kahe Kai vs. Antares??


The list above is what is available in the near future anywhere near where I live and need some advice from those that have paddled these models please.

I’m, 215 and 6’1” and I’ll paddle on flat l water and want speed (first priority). But I’ll also get out in open ocean swell (Florida) and want something that can handle the bumps as well.

Pros and cons? All advice is appreciated!

Only can give comment about the Kahe Kai....I am 6'3" and 220 pounds....loved my pueo 1 but it sat too far in the water for my weight. . As far as the Kahe Kai I found that it had the kind of "float" I was looking well in flats, nimble on swells. The standard model is very light. Feel that I am more on top of the water then trying to paddle through it. ..better glide ...not going much faster then my pueo but hull speed is easier to get and maintain.. Heard the Antares is similar and works well for a larger paddler.
