Let me tell you a bit about Elakai Outdoors….
Whether it’s cornhole, bocce, mountain blocks or hook and ring Elakai has your back with backyard fun all summer long!
The handcrafted games you purchase now are going to be fought over by your heirs. So make sure you specify in your will who gets your Elakai cornhole set.
That wasn’t a joke! Elakai games are super high-quality pieces of art that are made in small batches by craftsman. Craftsman who clearly take pride in their work.
So less waste because your cornhole set isn’t going to “get tossed” in a few years when it breaks and ends up in a landfill.
No two pieces are exactly alike and for this reason alone boast their own unique distinctions.
So we’re talking a business with a serious mission~ Elakai Outdoor makes outdoor lawn games to last a lifetime. More time invested outdoors with family and friends and less time stuck indoors.
Sounds like a big win! Make a s’more while you’re at it! Even better, Elakai has vowed to donate 1% of their profits towards the 1% for the Planet Initiative.
The quality of Elakai Outdoor boards…
There are cornhole boards and then there are Elakai Outdoor cornhole boards.
The set of (2) 2 foot x 4 foot cornhole boards are made of solid mahogany and American baltic birch wood construction.
Mahogany, folks…..doesn’t get better than this!
Surprisingly they are fairly lightweight and portable with built-in carry handles. I can haul these around the yard myself because the handles are so well-thought out.
- Set of two (2) 2-ft x 4-ft cornhole boards made of solid mahogany and American baltic birch wood construction
- Lightweight and portable with built-in carry handles
- Withstands 500+ pounds of load-bearing weight
- Sturdy mahogany legs level out the target on uneven ground
- Frame assembled with stainless steel hardware for corrosion resistance
- Magnetic fasteners hold legs when stored
Do not underestimate the magnetic fastener feature, it is amazing! It makes lugging this set around easier for sure!
Where and why are you going to play cornhole?
I’m not gonna lie. We are a diehard cornhole family. Competition is fierce! We love playing at home but also our new cottage. No better way to relax and unwind while the burgers are cooking with family and friends.
Nowadays you see people playing cornhole at the beach and the local park, not to mention tailgating before the big game.
Truly, cornhole is for all. It’s a game that anyone can play from 5 to 105 as it’s fun for all. You don’t have to be strong or brilliant to play.
Cornhole is not taxing mentally or physically but instead is just pure fun. Heading into my last trimester of pregnancy, I’m getting less able to do other types of sports.
But it’s nice to still be able to confidently play cornhole with my family!
So the little youngsters in your family can play with Grandma and even Great-Grandma, that’s what so awesome about cornhole with Elakai Outdoor.
Picking a cornhole board….
Talk about a difficult decision!
Elakai Outdoor makes a very unique National Parks Collection of cornhole boards. It took me days to decide which set I liked the most.
Why? Because truly, every set is a work of art. Hang these boards up on your wall to display as artwork when not in use. And that’s exactly what Tom and I did!
I was waffling between the Arches, Acadia, Cliff View or Grand Canyon Boards. All so gorgeous and well-made, how was I to decide?
Finally, I gave up and asked Tom his opinion. He was firm. Acadia. He loved it. So that was that.
But you pick your favorite park. Each board is truly unique so you can’t go wrong. The swirling colors and art drawn on each board are pure eye candy.
And you will be estatic to learn that Elakai Outdoor also makes travel sized boards. So if you’re heading off on that road trip~ this is the set to pack!
Cornhole bags for the long haul….
Only after I teamed up with Elakai Outdoor did I learn that not all beanbags are created equal. There is a great divide!
Elakai Outdoor 6 inch x 6 inch all-weather bags are special. Filled with resin, they weigh between 14ox – 16 oz a bag and are double-stitched for durability.
Their dual sided bags boast two different textures that help the bag slide up the board and even stick the landing. One side is smooth woven and the other a grippy suede side.
That’s helps me compete with Tom better. Even though I can almost always get the bag on the board, they use to almost always slide off prior to sampling Elakai bean bags.
So frustrating because then I get no points.
Besides, they are pretty and come in many delightful colors including red lava, orange horizon, marigold yellow, brown umber, light blue mineral, lake blue or teal.
I suggest getting two opposite colors so you don’t get your bags confused with your opponents!
Elakai Outdoor also makes another type of beanbag in a herringbone style that are equally attractive.
Other games to consider by Elakai Outdoor…
Maybe you’re not into cornhole (although I find that hard to believe!) Use your $300 to buy a bocce or perhaps a mountain block and hook and ring set.
It’s completely up to you! They also sell apparel and accessories. You’ll have fun on their site.
The second Tom ripped open the box from Elakai sports he said “Um, these are gorgeous. Wow, this is as professional as it gets.” That’s how amazed he was with the set.
And let me tell you, the man is not easily impressed!
Make sure you save that box like we did to smother your weeds in the fall.
So much fun with outdoor lawn games and Elakai Outdoor. Summer is far too short not to eek the most out of it.
S’mores and cornhole? S’mores and cornhole over the lake? That’s how we do summer, folks!
These cornhole boards will last you a lifetime, I have no doubt about that!
Summer is far too short. It’s time you spent more time with your family and friends and less time indoors and on that blasted phone. Forget social media!
Turn it all off and play cornhole instead! It will do you a ton of good for your overall health and well-being.
And invest in your future with Elakai Outdoor games to put your mind at ease. I hate throwing things out. I find the experience painful.
Besides, the 4th of July is rapidly approaching. Can you celebrate the 4th without a quality cornhole board set? I highly doubt it.
Until then, enjoy your beautiful and artful cornhole set from Elakai Outdoor. It’s the best you’ll ever own. Not to mention last because you’ll never replace it.
