Kalama Performance

We have a saying around the water cooler at Imagine. How can you trust your equipment if your designer doesn’t know how to use the products they design? Fortunately for us, our head designer also happens to be the guy who helped start it all. Dave Kalama certainly needs no introduction, but for those who may not be aware, he reintroduced stand up paddleboarding to the masses in the mid 90′s with good friend Laird.

Dave is a Hawaiian waterman who comes from a lineage of surfing and paddling champions. He has been at the start of it all- professional windsurfing, pioneeringa big wave tow surfing, and stand up paddleboarding. Designing his own equipment in each of these disciplines has given Dave a wealth of experience that is built into each product Imagine makes.

If you are ever fortunate enough to attend one of Dave’s Kalama Kamps, you will have the chance to rub shoulders with one of our sports true legends, and witness the level of expertise, information and passion he brings to the world of standup paddleboarding and Imagine Surf.
