Takayama knows how to shape longboards. The transition to the SUP market was not hard for him. The Ali'i II is designed to be an all around stand up that will paddle fast in flat water and nose ride like no other.
The Alii has a full nose for hanging ten with ease. Tak made this SUP a little narrower to improve the surfing, and he added full rails to add to the stability. The tail has a full round shape with a very subtle V to help it roll rail to rail. This is a top performer in waves below head high and for the paddleboarder that wants an all around SUP that surfs as well as their 9' longboard.
The Takayama Ali'i II is made with Surftech Tuflite EPS Epoxy Sandwich construction. Surftech is the only brand on the market that uses a fused closed cell WATERPROOF core. This means that your Tuflite board will last you a long time and it will not take on water if you ding it during your session.
REAL Review by Trip Forman
The Takayama Ali 11’ and 11’6 SUPS are the best longboard style surfing and noseriding standup paddleboards on the market. These boards feel just like a classic Takayama longboard when you’re riding a wave. They also excel as flat water paddlers due to their sleek, flawless lines.
Donald Takayama shapes these boards with less width and thickness per length so they feel nimble and alive on the wave and are easy to turn rail to rail. With this shaping theory in mind, you will notice that you’ll ride this board about 6” longer than other designs in order to get the same flotation, but it will never feel long.
Tuflite construction guarantees years of performance and durability. Classic Wood combines the strength of Tuflite with the beauty of wood veneer and solid wood nose and tailblocks.
