Inspired from the Stand-Up Paddling revolution from surfing (SUPing), Land Paddling is an exciting, fun, and inclusive physical activity that can be done on any smooth surface.

Land Paddling is the use of a land paddle stick while longboarding. The longboard stick (or "Longboard Land Paddle") is used to propel the longboarder farther without pumping. The longboard paddle is also used to direct the longboarder in the direction they are trying to turn and can be used as a brake.

Land Paddling is relatively new, but seems to be catching on pretty fast !

Though, land stand up paddling might be new to some people, the Hawaiians invented board riding thousands of years ago, resulting in the creation of all board sports. They found purity and freedom in board riding, which defines their culture today.

Kahuna Creations ( the creator of the Kahuna Big Stick, and Kahuna long boards ) pays tribute to those native riders by fusing the soul of surfing and the Hawaiian Spirit into its product lineup.
