Pure Surf Model. This Paddle is lighter than a feather and really nervy.
The Blade shape is particularly harmonious, the reduced surface of its profile as well as its reduced volume make for a high strung and nervy paddle.
Her outline facilitates early drop ins when rowing. The attack is strong and the cadence is highly enhanced. For the light/medium riders it is THE surf paddle. No trauma here, it's a paddle that you're going to love on long sessions because she doesn't pull on your back.
While surfing this blade skims and glides with ease due to its ultra fluid extrado. A relatively flat rocker gives it a good hold especially while laying down bottom turns and its reduced volume is ample enough to give you something to lean on in the slow sections.
But what you'll appreciate the most is that the changing of hands with the Carbon Curl is incrediblly vivacious. You can switch hands lightning fast and you'll have unhindered paddle frequency.
Fluid, alive and explosive....... a great paddle for light/medium riders.
High Performance Surfing. Priority focused on moves and enhanced cadence while rowing.
A High End paddle that favors maneuvers and dynamics.
The Handle :
The handle is a mini ergonomic T, very thin, ideal for long sessions without losing precision. The sharp T allows great precision while negotiating the blade in the water or out. Exiting the water is cleaner because your high hand perfectly manipulates the blade angle. The ergonomics have been focused on the faces and the tips of the T. No oversized volume on this handle, the ergonometry is discret and efficient. The grip in your palm is well tolerated and well repartioned. The ergonomics were specifically designed for intensive utilization. Prolonged contact discomfort is erased, the tips of the T were particular conceived to not mark the contours of your hand and assure you optimal precision. No worrying about thumb pain after a long session. Ergonomic AND efficient.
The Shaft :
The more rigid the shaft, the more precise your carving will be because the shaft won't bend under your weight when you're laid out on it when surfing. The edge you lay down gets laid down right when you decide to make it, you won't be needing to compensate with your legs and ankles like you would with a softer shaft. To get precision and dynamic when surfing you need a stiff shaft;). It's the Blade that will give you the contact you're looking for not the shaft.
The shaft is ovalized throught the center and high end (meaning 80% of its length). This ovalization offers a ton of rigidity and reduces weight, the hand hold is precise and firm. The forward and back faces of the paddle remain round for a painless and agreeable grip feel. The shaft diameter has been reduced in order to suit as many hands as possible.
This shape allows your low hand to participate fully to the drive of your paddle and the precison of your carving. It's both of your hands that are piloting the angles of your blade meaning less blows to your rails and a ton more precision and speed when surfing and while rowing.
