Country
Born on the Island of Oahu in 1991, KIALOA Paddles grew out of Dave Chun's love for the sport of outrigger canoe racing. Driven by the desire to build the best paddles in the world, Dave started crafting wood paddles on his parents' lanai. Shortly thereafter, he met Meg, a midwesterner transplanted to Hawaii. It was a marriange of west and east, island heritage and mainland progressiveness. The Chuns moved the company to Bend, Oregon in 1992, bringing the Aloha spirit with them. Against all odds, they started an outrigger club in the High Desert. Nowadays KIALOA makes a full line of stand up, outrigger and dragon boat paddles. And you can still find Dave and Meg paddling on the Deschutes River near the shop, together on the water.
