The refined version of the Shell Va’a Olamau winning canoe, the Malolo is Johnny Puakea’s latest unlimited OC6 design. The hull shape advancements and reduction in weight improve flat water speed and acceleration in the surf.

With a streamlined design and ultra light weight, the Malolo accelerates to top speeds quickly, taking less effort to catch bumps and maintain glide. Strong lines and a commanding profile add a visual aesthetic hard to miss in the line up or on the beach. The Malolo continues to prove itself in competitive events from coast to coast.

The Malolo comes to you fully loaded, we took out all the stops. It is overbuilt at 145lbs, single piece ama, spray skirts, foot braces, GoPro mount, paddle holders and much more.

The light weight also makes for much easier transportation and rigging of the canoe. The Malolo is built with Ozone’s innovative monocoque 100% carbon construction. Lighter, faster, stronger.
