Very pleased with the Kaku Kahuna. I started off looking for a fishing kayak, but decided the Kahuna was the best set up for fly fishing. It's also a fun recreational board. I found a few articles online, watched You Tube videos and contacted both ACK and Kaku. Everyone I dealt with was extremely helpful. The Kahuna arrived in perfect condition, delivered to the West Coast in one week. The Kahuna is incredibly stable and tracks well, stood up first time with no problem at all. While it's heavier than a typical paddle board, I can car top it by myself and this thing is durable. I also got the Engel 30 cooler to use as my seat. There is so much room on the Kahuna and I like being up & off the water for sight fishing. Kaku also makes a great fishing kayak called the Wahoo, you can check it out on You Tube.
I ordered my Kauk Kahuna from Austin Kayak and was very pleased with the whole process. My product arrived in perfect condition in 7 days. The Kaku Kahuna is an awesome paddlec craft. I took it out yesterday for the first time and did some fishing. When you stop paddling the Kaku keeps gliding strait forward, which is great when your fishing because you aren't having to constantly maneuver yourself in the direction you want to go, or if you see some tailing redfish like I did yesterday you can give your self a push in that direction set you paddle down and glide closer until your ready to cast. It's super stable, I never once lost my balance or felt like I was going to flip it or fall off, I even stood on my cooler on for a higher vantage point.. Another great feature is you put a Larry chair on it and paddle it like a kayak, you will want a 250-260 cm paddle for that since it is a wide craft. I used a SUP paddle all day yesterday and it handled great. The deck has plenty of tie downs on the back for rigging. I was able to bring all the gear I needed and never felt like I was going to lose any of it. I've owned multiple kayaks but for fishing the Kahuna out performs them all. I will probably buy another one soon for my wife and friends to use when they tag along.
