Ohana developed the 14' TR (Touring/Race) to be an all around board for any level of paddler. However, once prototyped and tested we found this board to be extremely stable and very fast as shown in the Catalina Challenge by taking first place in the Womens' division. The cutting nose entry and stable rail and bottom contours make this shape perform extremely well in rough and windy conditions into the wind, down wind and mixed swells. In flat water conditions the 14' TR is the most quiet board we have developed.
In our opinion, the 14'0" must be considered one of the top 14'0" in the race scene today. You won't see nearly as many Ohanas at your typical California SUP race as you will Surftech Barks, Naish and the like -- but talk to the racer who owns the Ohana and see what they have to say. The Ohanas are fast and fun!
The 14' TR is constructed with 1 pound EPS foam core, epoxy resins over 2 layers fiberglass top and bottom with another layer within the console area. The deck is gloss and polish with a sanded bottom finish. The shape includes a domed deck to repel water over the top surface and a flat console for foot placement. The console runs out the tail to remove any water which may wash onto the deck area.
