Build Your Own Kaholo Paddleboard Class

Build Your Own Kaholo Paddleboard Class

from 1,865.00

REGISTRATION CLOSES 3 WEEKS PRIOR TO START DATE. THIS GIVES US TIME TO GET THE KITS DELIVERED AND PREPPED FOR CLASS.

Working with surfing and paddle board guru Larry Froley of Gray Whale Trading in California, Chesapeake Light Craft created two beautiful hollow wooden boards with that rare quality of being fast enough to race but stable enough for first-timers. Tracking is great and a fine bow with kayak-derived shaping lifts the Kaholo 12-6 and 14 up and over waves. The tail shape and twin fins facilitate surfing on long swells once your skills build up to that.

With their uncanny speed, the Kaholo 12-6 and Kaholo 14 have found a following among racers. The 14 is better for larger paddlers (or those who might carry along dogs or small kids). The 12-6 is more compact, better for smaller-statured paddlers, and it fits in several increasingly popular racing classes.
