Kahuna Paddleboard 12’6 Comp XL Bamboo
The Kahuna Paddleboard 12’6 Comp XL Bamboo gives a little more float for the bigger guy. Adding another inch to the overall depth of the board enables a lot more stability. The Epic Touring Series boards are “Hand Shaped” SUP’s utilizing our Epoxy Sandwich Vacuum Construction (ESVC). The Comp XL – Bamboo is built with various top layers with Bamboo in the Sandwich for added stiffness. We start with an EPS foam blank and shape it with a unique negative nose angle design.
This progressive shape makes the board cut through wind chop and gives the paddler a huge advantage in directional stability. The board lay-up starts with three layers on the top and an extra fourth layer of 3k carbon is added to the standing zone. The fibreglass layers wrap over the rails for added protection and strength. We only use two layers of fibreglass on the bottom to keep the board as light as possible. Once you have paddled a KAHUNA Epic Touring Series board you will notice the details we have engineered into this board!
The Comp XL is a “Race Oriented” design for bigger paddlers that want to go fast and straight. The “Displacement Hull” with a negative nose angle will cut through choppy water with ease.

All KAHUNA EPIC SERIES models are hand shaped and use an Epoxy Sandwich Vacuum Construction (ESVC). The foam blank is wrapped with 2 full layers of fiberglass cloth on the top & bottom. A 3rd layer is added to the top of the board and is sandwiched with either fiberglass cloth or bamboo veneer.
For overall strength and durability, the standing zone has an additional top layer of fiberglass cloth wrapping over the deck extending to the underside of the board. The board is then vacuum bagged for perfect consistency producing a strong epoxy sandwich.
