ELEGANCE WITH PURPOSE
The Asana, is an advancement of our highly successful Kailua board. As industry leaders in the area of SUP Yoga and Fitness equipment, careful consideration has been given as to how the original Kailua board could be improved. The first thing that strikes you, is the new graphics by master artist, David Rigaud. We felt the original graphics were not in keeping with the board’s intention and in addition, Kailua was not a name representative of the board’s purpose and so the Asana was conceived.
It’s still based upon the same basic outline of the Kailua, but major improvements include; a cleaner deck for free and open movements, a grab handle on the tail and D-rings for the attachment and use of a shoulder strap, which doubles as a foot securement point for sit-ups or as a hand hold for leg raises for example.
The strap can be repositioned with ease and worn for carrying either side. It features a simple carry handle if the strap is not used.
There’s a cargo net for securing clothing, drinks bottles or a dry bag and we’ve made the board 5” thick, a little thinner than before and added a central reinforcing stringer along the underside to improve rigidity when exercising.
Popular not just for SUP Yoga and Fitness, this style board is easy to paddle and super stable and therefore doubles well as a durable dual purpose board for paddling and exercise. A single slide-in 9.25” fin, secured with a pin, makes for ease of removal and makes the tail area stable and paddling in a straight line effortless.
All in all, the improvements are dramatic on account of many micro-management fine-tuning adjustments to a board, which has proved itself the world over. It has now reached its zenith as a platform for paddling, yoga and fitness.
