Surfboards by Donald Takayama Noah Ka Oi Review

What the Surfboards by Donald Takayama site says about the Noah Ka Oi:

‘Noah Shimabukuro’s first board model by Donald Takayama. Probably one of the most versatile boards in the DT collection; handles well in anything from 2nd reef Pipe to 2ft Malibu. Pulled in outline with beach break rocker for racier sections and late take offs. Great for tube rides, noserides, and performance surfing!’

What people are saying about it:

I’m looking to buy this board.” – user Tanya on standuppaddlesurf.net

Ideal for smaller riders or pure surf use.” – Sup Surfboards

This is a refined version of Noah Shimabukuro’s other Donald Takayama board that suits more of a competitive type of surfing. A true contest board with a wider nose that brings more stability with nose riding. The lower section to tail is pulled in and runs down to the square tail that gives this board its responsiveness for a more progressive approach. A little extra rocker in the nose and tail give this board the elements for a true high performance nose rider. This board really does work well in a variety of conditions and has been the board of choice for other surfing professionals.” – Polyvore

Thanks to the versatility of the Takayama Noah Ka Oi Stand-Up Paddleboard, you can ride anything from second reef Pipe to two-foot Malibu waves. Its pulled-in outline with beach-break rocker handles racier sections and late take-offs with ease, while the Noah Ka Oi’s rounded pin tail allows more lift so it’s easier to turn and maneuver.” – backcountry.com

My best board ever!” – José María Wamba Solórzano on Facebook
