The Epic Touring Series boards are “Hand Shaped” SUP's utilizing our Epoxy Sandwich Vacuum Construction (ESVC). The 12'6" Comp XL is built with various top layers and available with either Fibreglass or Bamboo in the Sandwich. We start with an EPS foam blank and shape it with a unique negative nose angle design. This progressive shape helps 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 is added to the standing zone, wrapping over the rails for added protection and strength. We only use two layers of glass 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 is a "Race Oriented" design for those that want to go fast and straight. The "Displacement Hull" with a negative nose angle cuts through choppy water with ease.
