The amount of orders increased substantially this year. We receive orders by e-mail, by phone, spreadsheet or sometimes the ordersheet, which is available under Support/Resellers. Many times the orders are not complete, like missing duro of wheels, no sizes mentioned, or not clear if a complete or deck only is ordered. The effort to resolve all these issues is quite time consuming and makes processing orders slower. Therefore we have decided to implement procedures to speed up processing an order. Eventually we hope to have a webbased order application.
For now, we are focussing on stimulating our dealers to use the orderform under Support/Resellers. It has been completely renewed. The layout of the orderform and pricelist is completely different than before. In the orderform only entries can be made in the fields "Quantity" and "Comments". We can process this orderform much faster. Orders that are sent to us by using the orderform will have priority over all other type of orders, which have to be processed completely manually and therefore will be  much more time consuming. It is important always to use the latest orderform, which is always to be found under Support/Resellers.
We implement this procedure in an effort to cut back our process time of orders. We do hope our dealers will understand and help us improve by using the orderform frequently.

Kahuna just launched their newest model Big Stick, and it is adjustable!

The Adjustable Kahuna Big Stick comes with an adjustable black aluminum shaft, which allows riders to change the size by simply pushing in a pin and adjusting the length. This Kahuna Big Stick features our completely unique,
brand-new soft grip that makes riding unbelievably comfortable.

Featured on bottom of the Adjustable Big Stick is the Kahuna Blade™.

Shaped in the image of the native Hawaiian Lei-o-mano weapon, the Kahuna Blade is the ultimate innovation in skateboard technology.  The Kahuna Blade is engineered for performance, durability, and is aesthetically killing it.

What it  has:
- Polycarbonate (bulletproof vest material) casing, the pinnacle in
durability and lightweight technology.  The polycarbonate casing provides the
rigidity necessary to house the vulcanized rubber road grip.
- Vulcanized
rubber road grip is the rubber that meets the road.  The Kahuna Creations’
R&D team analyzed the entire stroke path to insure the ride is comfortable,
powerful, and smooth.  The undulated shape of the Kahuna Blade provides proper
leverage at each contact point through the entire stroke path.  Dampening holes
are included to take out weight and deliver the sweetest-feeling stroke
possible.
- The blade has two hooks on either side.  This enables the
freestyle rider to hook the board or rail creating countless new
tricks.
- Removable.  The Kahuna Blade is easily replaced.  Simply remove
two nuts and bolts, and pop on a new Kahuna Blade.

Recommended rider height: 4'-5" - 6'4"
