Named "Kanaloa" for "God of the Sea" this new Performance Single Fin features a wide nose, square tail, and single FCS fin set-up. Guy designed this performance single fin to fit between a classic longboard and a 2+1 set-up. The Kanaloa provides excellent glide, smooth turns and is a great noserider. This Kanaloa Performance Single Fin model features carbon fiber bottom and rails and a XEON Fiberglass deck.

When we say our longboards, fun shapes and hybrid surfboards perform like no other board on the market, we mean it. Guy Takayama designed these hyper performance surfboards to take full advantage of advanced materials and manufacturing methods to deliver boards that simply perform like no other. All surfboards are 100% hand layups, made with a total of 12 ounces of fiberglass / carbon fiber (both deck and bottom) for superior strength while maintaining flexibility.
GUY TAKAYAMA SURFBOARD BLANKS
Our blanks go beyond: The EPS fused cell core is created in custom molds, producing the same beautiful shape every time. The proprietary fiberglass stringer system provides additional longitudinal strength for controlled flex and twist in the tail. Each EPS blank is encased in a lamination of 4 ounces of fiberglass, vacuum-bonded with a high density foam shell using epoxy resin.
HIGH PERFORMANCE SURFBOARD SHAPES
Guy Takayama started with his best shapes based on decades of hand-shaping custom polyurethane surfboards, and modified them to take full advantage of the lighter, more durable epoxy technologies and other advanced materials. The results have frankly exceeded our hopes and expectations. These surfboards are magic, and advanced production methods, and intense focus on the quality ensure that every surfboard has the same magic in its soul.
