Kai Wa’a new model is a smaller version of the Antares. We call her the “Ares”.
The Ares is cut down in size, and slightly modified in the nose and mid section. Our popular seat and foot well position remains the same to achieve maximum comfort. Our goal with the Ares was to create a smaller design that could run well in all conditions. Upwind, downwind, and flat water. We made a couple of modifications along the way while going through the prototype phase to finished product. The result is the best yet.
In the surf, the Ares is effortless with full control, which is hard to find in smaller designs. The upwind paddling is smooth and consistent, with easy acceleration in the flat sections. The flat water gets entertaining when surges of ground swell, or residual of back wash, catch the hull and take you for an unexpected glide.
We are excited of our gains with the Ares and proudly stand behind our product. We won’t sell you ice in Alaska or sand in Hawaii. You be the judge. Take the Ares out for a spin and let what you feel be your deciding guide.
