Quite limited replacement stock (blade for me ) on website at moment. Are they still operating?

My understanding is out of business. I was able to get shop to put the bigger black project shaft on to the wiki blade after breaking the original shaft.

Out of business a couple or so years back. Such a shame..mine are going great after years of abuse.

I contacted them a couple of weeks ago . They are about to completely shut shop but he did have some shafts and a couple of blades . (No Manas though.)

Just check the site(Australian) sometimes the foreign breezers have it wrong as in this case KeNalu have been operating in Oz after the cessation in other countries. Always check stuff yourself

Hi DaveKe Nalu in the US has shut down and manufacturing has ceased so we are unable to get any more stock.It is a shame but there's nothing much we can do about it.We've still got very limited stock left that we are trying to move along before we shut it down completely in Australia.We've only got some Konihi blades in 84sq" and 95sq", 1 x Ho'oloa 95, 1 x xTuf Wiki 74 and a few Molokai 105 blades.The Konihi blades are beautiful things to paddle with.Only got Elite 100 flex shafts and xTuf 3 piece travel shafts..and a few handles.CheersDean

This is the reply I received from Dean who is the NSW rep for KeNalu when I contacted him a few weeks ago about purchasing another KeNalu paddle. I think this clears the matter up.

Thanks for all the responses . I've managed to get a blade from Deans remaining stock ( I did manage a repair to my other blade but it has added weight)I've had a few paddles and found the kenalu most suited to me.
