This was a great plan...

This was a great plan build. I completed it in about 3 weeks. Great instructions very easy to follow. This board was really fun to build and a pleasure to ride. Pros Fast board- Racers love this thing. Cons I highly recommend that you use the manufacture choice of plywood. Anything else will not work. Usage Catalina paddle/ The Pacific

My Dad built me this board...

My Dad built me this board 2 years ago and I love it. It is beautiful and is great for touring very stable and can really go if you want it to. I have entered multiple races including 2k sprints and 17k long distance. Quick turns are a little trickier due to the need of wax at back but could be my skill level also. Good all around board mine weighs 32 lbs. Cubby up front is life saver for shoes and phone. Pros Smooth ride on the lake ,stability with speed, a cubbie to keep stuff dry Cons Wood board requires maintenance. (So beautiful though) Usage I use for flat to light chop on the lake, exercise, training for races

The smaller Kaholo is...

The smaller Kaholo is still great even for bigger people stable and tracks great turns better than the 14.0 Pros Lighter than most SUP Feels solid no flex. Tracks well and still turns easy Dry hatch is great for your wallet and keys. Cons Cost It is only a kit not a ready to go board. Usage Exercise day trips wildlife watching
