The last one on today’s review I have got a spectacular longboard for you. I was stunned by looking at the amazing art done on the board.
The Kaimana means “The Power Of The Ocean”. The art on the board is the work of an internationally renowned surfer Sonni Hoenscheid. Being impressed by her art, the owners decided to use it on their board and it caught the attention of the cruisers right away. This one is very popular among girl riders.

Besides this stunning design, it comes with a ton of great features. The deck of this one is made using 6 layers of cold-pressed Canadian maple and 1 layer of Bamboo. The bamboo layer was used to give this a more enhanced look.
