Mel Puu embodies the spirit of the waterman. A longtime lifeguard at Makaha, Mel is a force to be reckoned with, whether he's tandem surfing, outrigger surfing, or getting tubed with a stand-up surf paddle in hand. He's also been known to give away surf boards and other contest prizes to competitors he felt were more deserving - it's all about having fun on the water for Mel. We're proud to name our new state-of-the-craft stand up surf paddle after him. A portion of Shaka Puu sales are donated to the cause of choice for Mel and his wife Momi, the Makaha Junior Lifeguard Scholarship Program.
The versatile Shaka Puu excels in all SUP disciplines; surfing, distance racing, and fitness paddling. Used by Chuck Patterson, to win the 10,000 dollar first prize at the 2008 Battle of the Paddle distance race, the Shaka Puu is a "must have" in any stand-up quiver.
