"Whether I am shooting in big surf, bodysurfing or swimming with friends, I always know that I can depend on my Kicks. I'm never in the water without them!" - Ha'a Keaulana
Tucked away on the Westside of O'ahu at the foot of the Wai'anae mountain range lies the home and workplace of Ha'a Keaulana. Appropriately named Makaha Beach, meaning "fierce" or "savage" this special place has been her playground since she was born. Coming from an epic lineage of watermen, Ha'a has made her own mark in the surf photography world. Offering a different perspective on traditional surf images, Ha'a captures a unique side of ocean photography from a woman's view.
The Shaved Ice is Ha's latest signature model fin. As Hawaiian as it gets, and the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day!
DaFin Kicks have been designed to be versatile and user-friendly. They have been designed with all water sports in mind including Bodyboarding, Swimming, Snorkelling, Bodysurfing or Water Photography in mind.
Compared to the regular DaFin Shape, these have a little less surface area in the blade making them slightly less powerful, but a bit easier on the feet and legs! Having a bit less rubber in them they are also a bit lighter in weight.
100% Malaysian Rubber- All natural, high quality rubber.The blade provides rigid resistance yet is flexible where required. There is less drag on the up kick and leg strain and cramps are reduced.
Comfortable Foot Pocket-The pocket is silky smooth and soft over the top of the toes and foot to prevent blisters and chafing while the bottom of the pocket is rigid to transmit power to the blade. Fin socks or booties are not required for comfort.
Lightweight- For such a powerful fin, DAFIN is one of the lightest surf fins on the market. Less weight equals less strain.
Extremely powerful- Revolutionary design creating maximum acceleration of the water flowing over the fin surface resulting in more thrust per kick.
Maximum Control - At speed the “strakes” generate a vortex of water from the trailing edge forming a barrier to help prevent the outflow of water from around the raised foot pocket resulting in an element of control and maneuverability across the face of a wave or in turbulent water.
Can be worn on either foot
Floats in salt water
Used by the Worlds Best Waterman - Ambassadors include Mark Cunningham (World Champion Bodysurfer), Zak Noyle (Professional Surf Photographer) and Brian Keaulana (World Renowned Hawaiian Waterman)
