The kids will love this. This is a board designed for having fun. It is light and yet robust and easy to handle. With the Play 8.0 the kids will get their first experience of paddle boarding in the best possible way. It is also a board to grow with until the kid is ready to take the step to any of the other models. Play 8.0 is not only a paddle board. It is also prepared for a small sail on and a center fin. This will extend the experience and the young paddler will turn into a windsurfer. Kona always recommends that children wear a life jacket when paddle boarding and always to be supervised by an adult.

Kona operates within the high quality segment. For us this means offering the best possible quality for its given purpose at an affordable price. We use double layer together with double wall technology for most of our boards. We have a smarter gluing process, a critical part of making a high quality board, which is completely machine based. This makes the boards more robust, stiffer, lighter and with an excellent surface finish. Compared to previous technologies it makes the boards approximately 20 percent stiffer. For some of our inflatables the prerequisites are distinctly different. In those cases we use the most appropriate technology. This is indicated at the presentation of individual boards.
