Still keen searching for some back story on this brand and board.

Do any of the original 14' SUP race crew who may know of this brand and board still visit this forum ?

Cheers

I started Lahui kai paddleboards on the Goldcoast at first we made Open ocean prone Paddleboard to cross the Molokai channel then when the Battle of the paddle SUP race started we tried our hand into making 12'6" Sup boards to compete in the that race in California. The boards dominated that race in all divisions and Surftech took on that model as their own for a few years then we made the 14' board EPS and hollow model . So from this the SUP world exploded and started here in Australia. I sold the brand to SUPATX in California and they still make some lahui Kai boards but not racing boards I believe. still would be a good all round board to race in most conditions. Enjoy the ride Mick Di Betta
