This is a solid Olo recreation made from a rare solid slab of Koa from the big Island of Hawaii. It is 11’ by 19” by 3”. These boards were generally used by royalty and ridden in soft rolling waves at Waikiki. Steeper waves were better for the Alaia which was shorter and thinner. The most prized Olo’s were made from Wiliwili wood which is Hawaiian balsa. They were lighter and easier to ride. None I them survived unfortunately. The ones made of Koa, an indigenous hard wood, were heavy and beautiful and Kin Paki’s board survives in the Bishop Museum in Honolulu. This board is modeled after it and weighs 90 pounds. It is finished with a hand rubbed oil and varnish mixture. It now lives in Florida with a patron of surf history!
