Even if you’re not a pro, this paddle will make you feel like one. The Hybrid Carbon-Glass blade allows the four phases of the stroke come to life. The carbon glass shaft makes it ultra lightweight. The ergonomic, molded grip is more function than form, making it easy on the hands. The paddle features a 10 degree angled blade and weighs approximately 20 oz (depending on blade size and configuration)
The Rip Stick 79 is the answer to what stand up paddle surfers want. More power from a smaller blade. Smaller blade size means a higher cadence for bursts of speed, with a low-profile that won’t trip up when executing turns. To generate more power, we developed an innovative double concave dihedral in the power face of the blade. The power pockets created to accelerate into more waves, outrace outside sets and blast over foam piles, Along with more power the double concave shape of the blade face creates a super stable stroke, for all the crazy angles you find yourself paddling. Coupled with our unique 7 degree blade to shaft offset, softer overall flex and wide range of fit options we now offer the surfer a paddle truly specific to the sport.
