Laleo Kinimaka makes these, large amount of MANA built into each paddle. He is kanaka, the top paddle surfer here in Hawaii, and this is his business. Got to support that!

Not to hard to make your own. These are the 1st two I've built. If you don't have the time though all of these look beautiful. You gotta go with the soul of the wood.



I blogged the construction here.

I'll be posting the finished photos soon.
