Puakea Designs Edge Rudder

$135.00

The Puakea Designs Edge Rudder designed by John Puakea and Billy Lawson on Oahu, Hawaii. This rudder is designed for the Cantare, Volare and Kahele OC1 and made by Outrigger Zone.

Compatible with select Puakea canoes only. Please SELECT the correct rudder for your model canoe in the drop down menu below. THIS RUDDER IS NOT ONE SIZE FITS ALL MODELS, as every OC1 canoe design has a different rudder shaft.

The Edge rudder design goal was to create better and more control with less drag. With the airplane wing as the inspiration, this is all about lift which is created by pitch (varying degrees of attack) and the controlling force or “roll effect.” The Edge rudder was designed to smooth out the controlling force effects the rudder has on the canoe while maximizing efficiency and performance with minimal drag in the surf.
