wahini original alpine carving boards
Kohana and Auwaha are available in a 162 cm, 175 cm, and 188 cm length with either Alpine Carving or Telemark binding inserts. Poli Ahu is available in 175 cm. only at this time. With each length, the radius and side cut gets larger as the board gets longer. The rider has the option of Slalom through Giant Slalom style of sidecut. Choosing the board based on the rider's height and weight depend on the type of ride you desire. Go short for slalom. Go long for heavier weight and taller people, giant slalom. For a stiffer ride step up to Auwaha. For the powder floatation step up to Poli Ahu. We recommend you experience our boards with an open mind and the ability to know that the board is in full contact with the snow under foot, and able to ride with confidence in all mountain conditions.

Our Graphic Boards
Rose Kimbell has created an art exhibition that begins with this new Snowboard Line of Alpine Carving Boards, The Wahini Series. We decided to offer graphics on three boards that reflect the Hawaiian Wahini lifestyle and elements of the beautiful breathtaking scenery in a rare art form by this blossoming artist.
The Wahini Series was inspired by the Hawaiian Aloha energy of the Islands and their Warm Pacific Climate. With extreme micro climates, big elevation gains, and coastal volcanic flows, the Hawaiian Islands give rise to the most recent growth of our Country's boundaries. Our Graphics Development reflect the elements of water, sky, and sand.
Our leading signature board showing the reflections of the sky on the water during a sunset. Many sunset colors are shown on the board, just as it is reflected on the water. The Goddess of Snow rises from the heat of the sun on the ocean, falling as snow on the high peaks of the volcanoes, and eventually melting back into the forests and rivers to the ocean, completing its cycle in the universe. Ever flowing, ever snowing.
Our inspirational leader in the series, laying trenches in the waves of the ocean and mountain. Painted here is a wave crashing mid ocean and massaging the coastal waters of the turquoise reflecting water surrounding the pacific islands. Wahini is at home and comfortable among the waves. Ever moving, rising and falling.
This board began the series, named from a passing car license plate "Kohana 5" here in NH. Kohana means "little flower" in Hawaiian, and swift in the Sioux language. She certainly is swift and soft, growing and flowering with beauty abound. This Sunset painting is inspired by all the beautiful light available during the beginning and end of the day, when the sky is filled with long wavelengths of light, giving rise to the colors so gloriously displayed. May the light shine for all to see and spread the vibrant energy.
A white W is part of the Ptex base at the tip of the board.
