What about it's History?
Koa has long been the cultural anchor of Hawaii. In the old days, Koa was reserved for Hawaiian Royalty and was used to make the first surfboards, outrigger canoes, and Hawaiian weaponry...to name a few. Essentially, Koa was at the historical and cultural heart of everything that we love about this amazing place. The lineage back to the ancient waterman and Hawaiian wayfinders is what sparked my imagination. It's my hope that the wood imparts that sense of adventure and exploration into my designs...so that they can be incorporated into your adventures.
