Gerry Lopez on Kialoa Paddles:

“I have heard it said that people who do what they want for a living end up doing what it is they are best at. I surf and build surfboards because I love it and think it’s the only thing I know how to do. Dave Chun builds paddles because he knows how to do it right. KIALOA Paddles are state of the art. When I watch Dave working or just talking about paddles, I can sense some very heavy feelings. The Hawaiians call this Mana and I believe it is a cosmic energy that flows through everything in the universe like the wind, the waves, rocks, plants and animals. Mana in humans is manifested as great skills, talents, strengths, intelligence and character. When using a KIALOA Paddle, that electric sensation one feels is the Mana. Keep Paddling.” – Gerry Lopez
