Ke Nalu’s New Ho’oloa Paddle

Global Partner

Ho'oloa 84 Ke Nalu sup paddle The differences between the Ho’oloas and our original designs are subtle but the way they feel in the water is entirely different! It has a slightly softened catch due to the narrower width but more drive due to the increased length and larger “sweet spot”. The narrower overall profile also helps to reduce flutter tendencies & keep the power more “centered” around the shaft. The Ho’oloa is offered in two sizes: The Ho’oloa 84 is 7.5″ x 16″ (84 sq. in.) and the Ho’oloa 95 is 8″ x 17″ (95 sq. in.). This blade is also offered in the “Downwinder Paddle” section with an xTuf or xTuf(S) shaft.

To configure your paddle, you will need to choose a Blade, a Shaft, and a Handle. Besides the standard shafts and handles we offer a long shaft ($25 extra) and the very versatile Extended Ergo T handle ($50 extra) as a selectable option. The Extended Ergo T handle is also available separately for $65. Sorry, the Extended Ergo T does not fit other manufacturer’s paddles.

Paddle Lengths with uncut Standard Shaft: Ho’loa 84: 83″, Ho’oloa 95: 84″ (Long Shaft adds 4″).
