Short Paddle Experiment

After seeing Blane out with his 48′ short paddle I decided to give it a try myself. I took out a 60″ C4 Waterman paddle that I have and decided to give the knee paddle method a try today. The conditions were windy, 10 to 20 mph and small waves but I need the exercise and decided to go out anyway. Continue reading ‘Short Paddle Experiment’

I love going to the C4 headquarters because I always get a chance to see the newest stuff coming out. I’ve watched Todd since I met him early last year work on an adjustable length paddle and was stoked to see it’s actually going into production.

Paddle Scuff Mark Removal

paddle_scuff_remover.jpg

It’s almost inevitable that the side of our stand up paddle boards get those irritating black scuff marks from our paddles hitting the rails of the board. I used to use car polish to get it off but sometimes it took a lot of scrubbing and other times it wouldn’t come off at all.

Dave Chun of Kialoa Answers Questions About Paddles (Part 4)

DSC04542.JPG

Last month I spoke with Dave Chun, founder of Kialoa Paddles, about his paddles, which he has been manufacturing since 1990. Dave started with stand up paddles in 1999. I got him to answer some questions from our stand up paddle surf community at Wet Feet Hawaii’s store. You gotta tune out the noise from the store because we shot this during business hours.

Sharky out here

I was staying in the North Shore last week and some of the guys that lived at the surf break ‘walls’ told me about a shark attack a couple weeks ago. Walls breaks far offshore so there’s a decent paddle out. I guess a guy got a shark tangled in his leash and then his board got bit but he got away ok. I heard it was a big tiger shark but can’t confirm. That kept me from paddling that far out while I was there. Continue reading ‘Sharky out here’
