Kamanu Composites Kaiwi Solo

Posted on Apr 23, 2024

Aloha Kamanu Ohana,

Kamanu Composites is proud to announce that we will be the title sponsor of the Kaiwi Solo World Championship on May 4th!

As many of you know, the Kaiwi Solo is the most prestigious and respected event in OC1 racing, with the best in the world going head-to-head for 32 miles from Molokai to Oahu. For us at Kamanu, the Kaiwi is the ultimate proving ground for our craft. It's what we optimize for in our relentless pursuit to build the fastest outrigger canoes in the world. And so it's an incredible honor that we get to place our name on this year's race -- something only possible with the support of our team of athletes and team sponsors this year, to whom we owe much gratitude.

We can't wait to see the world's best paddlers go to battle and hope you'll join us in the Live Feed. We are working closely with Pa'a to help share the experience as best we can. Be sure to tune in on May 4th at 10 am.

Here are a few other quick updates:

Cali Container & Gorge Delivery: There's still time to get a Noio for the Gorge. Contact Aria or place a Noio deposit today.

Shop Move: We're fully settled into our new space and loving the efficiency and focus it provides. The essence of canoe craftsmanship is alive and well, and we're excited to keep tuning the dials in production and the shop.

Custom Noio: As a reminder, we restructured our pricing with all-white canoes starting at $5900. All custom options are back.

Socials: Please follow us on Instagram @kamanucomposites if you haven't already! We share a lot of Noio feedback and whatever paddling content we can. Also, tag us when you post! It goes a long way in sharing the stoke and keeping canoes made in Hawai'i.
