Olas Eco Paddle Board by Wappa SUP
Olas was developed out of our founder’s love of wide paddle boards.
Introduced in 2017, it quickly became our best selling SUP.
At 36” wide, Olas can easily accommodate the kids or the dog, yet it performs well in the waves, making it easy to catch the surf.
The extra width of this board enables people with a wide stance like our founder to feel very comfortable, and despite its size Olas glides through the water with ease.
It comes with a rounded pintail which moves water off the tail and rails in a diffuse fashion. Pintail boards don’t have the raw acceleration of a squaretail, but what it lacks in off-the-mark speed it gains immensely in control and subtlety of turning angles.
The graphic symbolize waves, and was created by California designer Loirens. She loves to paddle surf, and was inspired to create this image while riding the swells near San Diego.
The extra tail width forgives minor mistakes when surfing.
