The Kaku Voodoo hybrid paddleboard Photos by Ric Burnley

The development of hybrid kayaks and standup paddleboards moved into the fast lane at Paddlesports Retailer with the release of Kaku’s Voodoo SUP. Designer and owner, Kevin Hawkins told us that the design started with the seat. A sturdy, high-level seat is built of 1 ¼-inch aluminum tubing with an aluminum platform under so it doubles as a standing platform. The padded backrest doubles as a leaning post.

Add a small cooler, tackleboxes and a half dozen rods and you still have room for gear and fish. Hawkins also included four Power-Pole micro mounts that can also host an electric trolling motor. Building the board out of RotoMolded allows Kaku to install a bow and stern hatch for more storage. There are tie-downs, scuppers in the deck and a full foam deck pad.
