Pau Hana Endurance

Price: $1,599 Build: Non-inflatable
Skill: Beginner Use: Touring
Weight: 31.3 lbs Sizes: 12'

About the board: Yes, yes, yes! The Pau Hana Endurance is super fun. It’s very stable and is a great board for many uses. The Endurance can be great for touring, racing and all around family fun, making this board incredibly versatile. It’s also offered in Pau Hana’s Ricochet technology which makes the board virtually indestructible, which if you ask us is a huge plus. It has a beautiful finish and is arguably the most durable board around, which is a hard combo to come by. The board does come in at a heavier weight, about 31lbs, but the durability, graphics and fun factor alone easily carry this board into the A-grade tier.Read more HERE.

Pau Hana Malibu Tour

Price: $999 Build: Non-Inflatable
Skill: Beginner Use: Touring
Weight:  32.1lbs Sizes: 11'6"

About the board:The Pau Hana Malibu is a plastic paddle board that has changed the concept of plastic boards. Plastic boards to date have dealt with a number of challenges. One, the graphics tend to be very plain, usually just white boards. Two, they don’t have a really nice finish and tend to have a seam that goes all along the rails on the both sides. Three, they are quite heavy. And four, they also don’t float as well as composite boards, normally. The Malibu changes all of that. In fact, the Malibu is the plastic board that can fool you into thinking you are paddling a composite board and to boot it looks stunning. Pau Hana has done a really great job and at the price point it comes at it is an excellent board and a great buy.Read more HERE.

Pau Hana Navio

Price: $1,295 Build: Non-Inflatable
Skill: Beginner Use: Touring
Weight:  28.3lbs Sizes: 11'

About the board:The Navio is not clearly a flat water board, it’s not clearly a touring board, it’s a combination of both. It comes with the best in class of everything you can think of. It has a beautiful deck, and just beautiful graphics all around. It has a lot of add ons too, so if you want to have your iPad mounted on it, a GoPro, maybe a gps, a fishing pole, a cooler, you name it, you can strap it onto this board. It is highly stable and also tracks really well. It is fairly lightweight for the type of board it is, so phenomenal job by Pau Hana. If you are looking for a primarily touring board that can be very comfortable paddling on flat water, maybe to play around with your family and have kids on the board or some gear for the expedition, the Navio is a great choice.Read more HERE.

Pau Hana Grom

Price: $499 Build: Non-Inflatable
Skill: Beginner Use: Kids
Weight: lbs Sizes: 6'

About the board: The Pau Hana Grom is just that: a board for groms. If you’re looking to get a board that can double as a starter paddle board and a surfboard for your kid then the Pau Hana Grom is something you need to look at. The Grom is a very affordable, non-inflatable paddle board that will work great as an all around paddle board and will be a board that your grom can handle with ease. One thing to keep in mind here though is that because this paddle board is meant for the kiddos it will eventually be something that your kids will grow out of. The board is likely going to be best suited for kids 13-years-old and younger. Read more HERE.

Skill: Advanced Use: Race
Weight: 28.2 lbs Sizes: 12'6", 14'

Who is this for: If you’re looking for a fast, non-inflatable, race board to paddle then the Viper from Pau Hana is worth a look.

Its shape makes the Viper a race board that should be used by advanced paddlers and was designed for competition. Its construction and shape combined best fit this board for flatwater racing. Retailing at $2,199, the board is in the high-tier price point but is among the best that the brand has to offer.
