One moment the ocean is on your side, the next it’s against you. Distraction can be the difference between being on the water - or in it.

When you don’t have full focus, your team is left picking up the slack, which makes you feel like they can’t count on you. We believe you deserve a shot to prove you’ve got what it takes.

A big blade for big water.

The AHI OC6 steer blade is our answer for big water conditions for outrigger canoes. We used our original AHI as a template and increased the surface area to accommodate bigger swell conditions. The AHI will keep your crew hammering down the line of your choice without the canoe getting away from you. Used in calm to bigger ocean conditions.  Strong and durable with a vertical shaft layup that extends from the handle to the very tip of the blade.

 

  • Weight: 22-26oz
  • Width: 9.5" - 9.75"
  • Length: 21"

Current turnaround time on all custom wood paddles is 4-5 weeks. Please note that all paddle orders are custom and cannot be returned unless damaged upon arrival.

The AKU Steering Paddle is designed for the active steersmen, the paddling steersman. For calm to moderate conditions, the AKU allows you to hammer with the rest of your crew without the excessive fatigue associated with paddling a larger steering blade. The AKU was also designed to be an effective seat five steering blade to help out when needed.

Because steering paddles take the most abuse, we felt it necessary to build our steering blades with strength and durability in mind. We start with a vertical shaft layup that extends from the handle to the tip of the blade. In addition, we use a braided fiberglass biaxial sleeve around the shaft to reinforce this high-stress area. We add our special edging to increase the life of your blade. To ensure the blade itself is thoroughly strengthened, we use a selection of carbon fiber and fiberglass on both sides of the blade. The AKU comes in both straight and double-bend shafts.

 

Specs: 20"L x 9.5"W, 9.75"W, 10"W

Current turnaround time on all custom wood paddles is 4-5 weeks. Please note that all paddle orders are custom and cannot be returned unless damaged upon arrival.

What People are Saying...

Hannah F.

Paddler

"I really love this hat! Not only is it hi-viz, but it also stays on my head. Now that I have short hair I cannot attach my hat with a ponytail. The other morning when I paddled, it was super windy and the racer cap is very quick and easy to adjust with the velcro and I was able to secure it tightly enough so it never blew off in the strong wind."

Alton S.

Paddler

Went out and steered for the Keiki and THIS IS THE BLADE FOR ME!!! My double bend that looks like a regular paddle, but heavier, I see now was not the right size and had too much bend. Time to get it on now!!!

Amy H.

Athlete

"So happy with the great gear I just got from Full Circle Ocean Gear! Really good quality and I love how bright and cheerful it is. I thought the ordering process would be hard coming from Hawaii but it was so smooth and got to me super fast. Can’t wait to see what else they do!"
