Surftech San-O Carbon Stand Up Paddle

surftech-san-o-carbon-stand-up-paddle-6

Here’s a preview of the new Surftech carbon paddle. They have a full carbon model and a carbon/fiberglass model. Both are really light and I was surprised how light the carbon/fiberglass version is. The largest blade size is 9.5″, a bit large for my personal taste but perfect for outrigger paddling. I ended up cutting one of these paddles down to 52″ and use it with my OC-1. I love it for OC-1. It weighs 15 oz which is lighter than my Apple iPad. Continue reading ‘Surftech San-O Carbon Stand Up Paddle’

Here’s demo of the Surf Nano Product (SNP) by Tom Warnke. This was shot at the Hawaii Battle of the Paddle 2010. I did a test with this stuff in an earlier post but I thought I’d get the demo on video straight from the horse’s mouth. SNP is supposed to make your board faster by reducing friction and drag. You’ll have to test it for yourself.
