OC2 by Puakea

A two-person outrigger canoe designed with less wetted surface area and a shorter hull for more speed, carry, and maneuverability

Released in April 2023, the Ballare is a two-person canoe that blends the quick, maneuverable, and lightweight design of the Cantare with the high-end speed and carry of the Volare. The Ballare has been designed for variable-weighted paddlers, specifically with the heavier paddler in the back seat.

One notable improvement in the Ballare’s design is its new ama, which offers reduced drag and increased speed. The Ballare also features a new ‘Ozone Rotate to Adjust’ iako system.

Johnny Puakea“OC2’s are not only great coaching tools, but they also instill confidence and teamwork. Providing the feel of speed which is all beneficial in paddling. When we go out on the water, we are putting our trust in our equipment, our team, and in our own abilities. Without this trust, we are distracted and can not effectively learn and grow into better paddlers. The Ballare will teach us to dance with the water, our teammates, and ourselves. Let’s learn together. Let’s Dance!”
