Product Overview

Fast, super stable and ready for your next adventure!

The 12'6" x 30" Lahui Kai Carbon Tour paddle board was designed by Brian Szymanski and John Becker. This shape features excellent stability, speed, tracking, control, carrying capacity and comfort in all conditions. No subtle detail was overlooked in deck design and tour configurations. This board features Lahui Kai 3X Carbon Construction, CONNEXSUP modular accessory system, LIFTSUP handle, and the proprietary SZY-TRE (pronounced SHIZZY-TREY) which is a gear saddle that keeps your essentials securely within arms reach. 


The Carbon Tour features a finely tuned displacement touring hull that cuts through water. This keeps the energy you exert flowing and minimizes the effort you have to put out while paddling...keeping you going for those long far off excursions. This hull is made using our 3x Carbon Fiber construction so it can absorb bumps and bruises that you may encounter along the way.


From tip to tail, the deck is fully loaded to meet any and all of your touring needs. Featuring a Gore-Tex vent plug, custom anti-fatigue EVA deck pad, and an easy to carry patented LIFTSUP handle that even gives the board a super strong place to run a cable lock through when left on your vehicle. 11 CONNEXSUP modular gear plugs mounted through out the board give you endless options for mounting your favorite accessories or stowing gear. Located right in front of the paddler is the proprietary SZY-TRE, a flat Dztraydz for placing your most needed gear while out exploring.


Each Lahui Kai Carbon Tour features a race inspired bottom contour. The design is very close to what we use on all of our Carbon Race Boards and because of this you get unmatched speed from these Touring shape.  


One of the most important and often overlooked specs of any paddleboard is thevolume. The riders weight vs. the boards volume is the best way to fit a rider to the right board. The 12’6dz Tour features a whopping 260 litters of volume, allowing for a rider and his/her gear to total 300 lbs.


The touring shape is the next step in the evolution of paddle boarding, breaking away from your standard recreation (round nose) shapes. Where those boards have their place, the Touring shape is far superior and will allow any rider to go further and get there faster all while using much less energy. The Lahui Kai Touring shape and design are a result of many years of professional shaping and development.  


The Lahui Kai Touring models all feature 3XCarbon construction. 2 layers of carbon fiber on the top and 1 layer on the bottom. All 3 layers overlap onto the rails creating an I-beam of carbon fiber. This gives the board unmatched structural integrity and keeps the board super light. All Lahui Kai touring models have 1 lb EPS foam cores.
