The Ruahine wing paddle has become a favourite for multisport paddlers, and increasingly, surfski paddlers who want to maximize the potential of their forward stroke. Stable, smooth and powerful, the Rua is an excellent choice for the dedicated racer or serious amateur.

Tim’s Recommendations

This is a small sized wing paddle with an adjustable shaft length of 200cm-210cm so it’s the perfect sized for the shorter multisport kayaker. The smaller blade size means you can have a faster cadence without the increase in torque, making it suitable for just about anyone and ideal for Coast to Coast.


We work on a 3-4 week turnaround. In many cases we will be able to supply before the three weeks is up however, these are a hand-made product so they do take time to produce and we often have multiple orders in the system. we will advise you of an eta at the time of ordering.

Shipping and Pickup

We are based in Mount Maunganui and kayaks can be picked up directly from my workshop. Shipping throughout NZ and the world and will be charged at cost. Please ask for an estimate.

Colours Fiberglass

All fiberglass kayaks come with a white hull. This looks smart and doesn't show up as many scratches caused by rocks. The deck can be either a single, block colour (great if you want to display sponsors logo's) or your choice of two colours that are faded together. Please note that the colours are mixed in with the resin at the time of laying up the kayak so not everything is possible. At the time of ordering we will discuss the options with you and make recommendations if necessary.  

Composite Colours

Our composite kayaks have a white hull. If you would like a clear hull (to show off the beauty of the fibres) please be aware that micro bubbles and resin pockets may be visible. The deck is your choice of colour just like the fiberglass model. We prefer to have this coloured to prevent the sun from heating it up too much but if you wish I can also do the top with a clear coat.
