AKAMAI was created to offer the ultimate in personalized , high performance stand up paddle design in the industry. Limited to 100 custom designs per year, each AKAMAI board addresses each customer’s height, weight, ability, intended use, ( recreational paddling, performance surfing, racing or tandem surfing ) even the type of conditions or waves they will be involved in. AKAMAI boards are designed to perform better as your skills improve. All designs incorporate time tested, contemporary template, rocker and rail configurations and emphasize smooth, stable and fast paddling. Beyond personalized design, available variations include ultra light blanks, a variety of fin set-ups, glassing materials and deck pads. We use only the finest leading-edge materials, constantly seeking stronger and lighter advances for our products.
Our process begins with a personal interview with designer/shaper Gary Robertson and he is involved in every aspect of design, material selection, graphics, glassing even instruction for beginning paddlers. Each board is a one of a kind work of art, never duplicated all handmade. Gary is insistent on the finest finished product, working with the most talented production staff in the business.
