Kai Wa’a – Hawaiian Ocean Canoes has developed a new surfski called the Vega

According to Paolo Ameglio via Facebook, “The Kai Wa’a Vega brings together years of boat design experience to hand shape a sleek Surfski that is built lighter and stronger to go fast and in accordance with the ocean. The Vega design features a sharp entry, a bold rocker, and ample volume in the right places to keep you moving from bump to next section with smooth control. Refusing to compromise speed for surf maneuverability, the Vega moves through the flat with responsive acceleration and momentum.”

This surfski is Ozone Built 100% Carbon Fiber Prepreg, in single piece construction. Oven cured with 3x atmospheric pressure. The center of the Surfski is reinforced with triple carbon for added strength and durability.

At 20-21lbs the Vega Surfski is light and maneuverable on or off the water. The light and stiff hull providing for a vibrant feel in each stroke and glide. The Vega features a minimalist Adjustable Footbrace Steering system, a Quick Stop spring loaded venturi drain and an Automatic Center Returning Rudder. There is a new star to discover, and it’s on the water, the Vega Surfski by Kai Wa’a, Ozone Built.

Thanks Paolo for the preview!
