The WAHINE is a little shorter, thinner and lighter than the SISTA but still has Kahuna’s fast rocker line for superior glide. The Warrior WAHINE bamboo is built using wood veneer integrated into Kahuna's wide board shape that allows the girls to play in the waves, paddle the lakes and perform some yoga. Having a wider shape this board is excellent for both beginner and experienced paddlers.

Our WARRIOR Series has been manufactured for the past 4 years using a proven method of epoxy construction called "Compression Molding". The compression molding process starts by using a CNC machine for precise and consistent shaping of the WARRIOR Series blanks. The precision shaping allows the board blank to fit and be compressed in our exclusive KAHUNA mold. We apply heat with vacuum pressure to aid the curing process ensuring shell consistency and strength. For added rail strength and overall board durability, the standing zone has an additional top layer of fiberglass cloth wrapping over the deck and extending to the underside of the board.
The WARRIOR Series still features the “K-Rail”, an extra 6” layer of Kevlar cloth that wraps the entire rail. This Kevlar wrap adds resistance to paddle strikes and dock dings. Another great feature that remains is the “3K Carbon Standing Zone”. Adding a layer of carbon weave not only adds to the durability of the board but makes this area stiffer, more resistant to heel dents. This also reduced our board weight by 2.7%.
