• Volare oc1 by Puakea


The Volare is a larger volume OC1 built for downwind conditions and larger paddlers with an adjustable footbrace

The Volare is designed for bump riding and for larger paddlers in the flat.

The Volare, has a long waterline and supple rocker, making it fast on the takeoff and flat, while also great surfing ability. When compared to its predecessor, the Kahele, the cockpit has been lengthened and widened with additional volume under the seat for improved surfing direction.

The Volare is the first Ozone Built production OC-1 to incorporate an adjustable footbrace. The rider can calibrate the canoe’s trim for his/her height, weight, and water conditions.  With this feature, cockpit placement is no longer a compromise.

Volare designer Johnny Puakea“We looked at the best parts of the Kahele, and designed a fuller boat for bigger conditions and bigger paddlers maintaining the flatwater speed the Kahele is known for. Our goal is to help paddlers to find their best stroke, be physically comfortable, and have the most fun, in as many conditions as they like. The Volare is our latest innovation in the evolution of the OC1.” – John Puakea, Designer, January 20th 2020
