About Kahuna

Kahuna Paddleboards Inc., based in Whistler, British Columbia, has been supplying stand-up paddleboarders world-wide with innovative, quality boards, paddles and accessories since 2008. Kahuna is the creation of Steve Legge, a longtime Canadian waterman, who has been designing and shaping windsurf boards, wake boards and surf boards since the mid 1980’s. Steve discovered the sport of paddleboarding while out surfing in his adopted home of Maui, Hawaii, in 2005. He quickly discovered that using a paddle and a larger board greatly increased the amount of waves ridden by experienced and beginner paddlers alike. With this in mind and committment to industry leadership, Steve established Kahuna Paddleboards. Under Steve’s guidance, Kahuna has evolved into the largest, best selling, paddleboard manufacturer in Canada.

At Kahuna, we believe that leadership comes with dedication to quality and innovation. Our line-up of 49 different boards are constructed using superior building products consisting of traditional natural materials like bamboo, koa wood and silk, combined with modern materials such as kevlar, carbon and fibreglass for superior strength and performance. Wrap these materials around our unique shapes and you have a paddleboard that is truly exceptional in fit and finish! Each board and paddle is tested extensively in all water conditions using the expertise of our shapers, staff and ambassadors. This ensures that designs and features of our paddleboard packages, from bags to fins, meet the demands of our customers before they are excepted into our line-up. For piece of mind, on and off the water, every Kahuna board package is backed by a one year warranty against manufacturer defects.

Having fun on the water with friends and family is core to the paddleboarding culture. The relaxation and strength benefits are just a bonus! Our mission is to provide a top quality product at a reasonable price. We hope you enjoy our products and look forward to seeing you on the water. Kahuna Paddleboards, we are paddlers too!
