Maa Afi

I just had to come on here and make a brief comment about the Maa Afi. With my other designs except for the WaveBlade two man, after about maybe 4 months of paddling and racing them in the channels, I wanted to change them some how. With the Maa Afi, there is nothing I want to change. I love this canoe. More people should test drive it. Small water or big, its cherry. Thanks for everything Papu, Out

Looking for used OC1 in Florida

I was a Maui Girl for over 10 years; moved to the Florida Keys and was so shocked to find no canoe clubs, despite the perfect water conditions. I have decided an OC1 is the next best thing... except no one in the Keys seems to have ever even HEARD of one, let alone know where to find one.

maoliwaa paddles

Just wanted to know if anyone has had good results from maoliwaa paddles. Seem like great paddles but we all know how ordering from across the way can sometime be. Delivery time? Product quality? etc. I would really like to find a good quality all wood double bend since my classic savage river broke last year. Tried others- do not like them How are the Tahitians doing?

Can I fix a broken ama from an OC-1

I pitch-poled my buddies stingray into the sand last night and when I came up the ama was ripped in half about a quarter of the way down off the nose. I've seen hobie cat hulls damaged like this and simply glassed back together, but I'm not sure if the same techniques would apply here given the materials. Anybody know how to fix this thing? or, where I can find a used ama for cheap, I live in north carolina. Thanks much.

New Boats: TAHITOA and TEMANA check um out. www.maoliwaa.com

These are two of the V-1 models offered from maoli wa’a. These boats are the best of their kind they can be ordered with a rudder attachment for the new oc-1 paddlers or rudderless for the paddler that likes a smoother paddle with less drag from a rudder. The beauty behind the rudder attachment is that you can use the rudder until your comfortable with the boat then you can remove it (its not a permanant rudder). The boats are offered in many different color options or even custom paint jobs. Also offered buy maoli wa’a are some of the finest handcrafted paddles made by tahiti rame. Visit www.maoliwaa.com for more information and any inquries.

foam for bungee net


I am looking to improve the rear storage net on my Kaimana. Where can I buy sheets of high density foam with an adhesive backing? this stuff doesn;t have to be thick, I just want to keep stiff from wiggling around under the bungie net.

I've walked miles in Home Depot, hobbie stores..

any suggestions for this? the hurricanes appear to have this under the bungie net..


I was looking at race photos from the Kanaku Ikaika race (almost all Pueo's??) and I was wondering why the ama on the Pueo looks so straight (flat?) with very little upward curve? Also the iakos look very straight also. When I looked at the Kamanu Composites website, I thought the ama on their website looked a little different than the ones in the race but can't be sure. Can someone comment?

Makana Ali'i paddles

We're coming to Oahu next week and was wondering where I can find one of these paddles or who has any aval for sale ? Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated
