Imagine eight paddle boarders on one board riding the waves. It is possible. The name is Mahalo Big 17.0. Thanks to its longer rocker line it is well suited for waves and the twin tail gives the board outstanding riding qualities given its size. Just as its cousin Mahalo Slim 17.0 the board can carry three windsurfing rigs making it ideal for instructional purposes. The main target group for this board is windsurfing centers, activity centers and hotels. The board is also equipped with two valves to enabling inflating a double pace.

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.
