Aloha
A Stand Up Paddleboard

11'6" x 29"   /  3.5m  x  74cm
Maximum recommended paddler size: 170lbs / 78kg
Weight is about 20lbs / 9kg

The Aloha is a  SUP meant for smaller paddlers. She's fast, stable, easy to maneuver and has a more traditional look than the Lanui. And - aside from the Kidyak - she's the quickest and easiest boat to build in my line up. The lightest, least expensive, quickest and easiest to build SUP on the market, in fact.
Plans come with full sized patterns for the frames, stem, transom, etc  and comprehensive, well illustrated instructions that guide you step by step from start to finish throughout the build. Just lay the patterns over a sheet of plywood (and you'll only need a little) and cut out the pieces. There's no lofting required, measurements are in both metric and imperial, and the building process is simple and straight forward. This boat can be ready for paint in a weekend, for little expense and with only basic tools.
