Pro Model FAQ
What is included with the Pro Model?
With the Pro Model upgrade, your canoe or kayak comes with the Pro Model layup, pro-finish, two rudders, and upgraded AMC Canvas.
Can I customize paint and graphics on my Pro Model?
Short answer, no.
The primer brushed carbon layup is across the board for all Pro Models.
You can choose the color of the logos, Cockpit, and Ama, but you cannot add graphics or other colors to the design. You can add brand elements to the ama, for example Kai Wa’a canoe ama’s can have Kai Wa’a logo, Iwa bird logo. Puakea ama can have Puakea logo, Malolo flying fish logo.
Sorry but NO colored parts/iako, this is for Team Riders only
Can I have customized colored parts like I see with Team Riders?
No sorry. The Team Riders are the only Pro Models that have this option.
How much lighter is the Pro Model?
The Pro Model hull can weigh as low as 14-18lbs depending on model. We accomplish this by removing elements from the paint and layup.
