DaGrind 2013 will include a long course and a short course:

Found Scorpius XS on I-5 (on way home from Gorge)

Anyone know who ‘lost’ their Scorpius XS (blue/black) and roof racks on the I-5 back from the Gorge? We salvaged the seat and leash and held a quaint ceremony for her. She’s tucked on the other side of the guard rail so she won’t blow into traffic. I have pics for insurance purposes as the boat is beyond repair. You can email me at Sorry for your loss :(

Kialoa 51" Nehu - used once!

Item Description: 

I bought this Kialoa 51" Nehu double bend outrigger paddle last month from Island Paddler when I was home in Kailua but unfortunately I need a 52", not a 51". This is like new, and it was only used one time for a paddle in a freshwater lake and then rinsed, dried, and put away in a padded bag. It has been kept in a padded bag and has never been exposed to saltwater. Asking $235.

Please email me at riceboy72 @ hotmail . com, or text me at 253 680 9877 if you have any questions or wish to see it. This is an excellent and well designed paddle, but just one inch too short for me. I live in the Tacoma/greater Puget Sound area and am willing to drive a reasonable distance, or meet you at any upcoming PNWORCA races.

Mahalo for looking!

Fai Va'a - Fai3 - Seattle Va'a - For Sale

Item Description: 

Learn more here:

Tahiti made Fai3 is now available. This canoe is very rare and very difficult to get access to unless you are in Tahiti, where it is the most popular V1 and used by the best paddlers (first place finishes in Te Aito and Super Aito). In 2011 a big effort was made to bring a container of canoes from Tahiti to Hawaii and Mainland US, the purpose was for us to learn from the Tahitian by paddling the canoe they paddle.

FAI 3 follows the successful FAI 2, FAI 1, SP 2, SP 1 and NOE designs developed by Noe, a Tahitian shaper who changed the sport forever with his innovative designs.

The FAI 3 design has a slightly more rounded hull cross section fore of the cockpit providing more buoyancy in the bow and more maneuverability while preventing excessive pearling in extreme sea conditions, carrying the paddler from bump to bump burying the nose and losing momentum. The cross section aft of the cockpit adopts a slightly more V hull allowing for great performance on the flat while giving incredible control in the surf. Adequate rocker was designed to allow for performance in all conditions.

The FAI 3 performs very well in all ocean conditions but it really shines in rough and big conditions. The perfect shape in big surf for paddlers with good control, it remains the design of choice for those who enjoy surfing and paddling in extreme ocean conditions.

  • One of the best tools to develop your paddling skills and awareness.
  • Fully customize your rigging with Tahitian style iako, ama, wai rigging.
  • With World Sprints 2014 around the corner you will have ample time to develop your "holding the line" skills that you will need if you plan on attending.
