The SURGE SUP surfing paddle is for paddlers who want catch more waves and surf better with less fatigue during long sessions. Whether you are hunting barrels on the North Shore or styling your local beach break, the Surge is designed to deliver power and comfort. Lightweight and durable, the Surge combines exceptional power, blade stability and dynamic flex to help you paddle faster into waves and enhance your surfing, while protecting your body from injury during long sessions.
The Surge was designed to meet SUP surfers’ specific needs and has become the paddle of choice for many APP World Tour athletes including; Mo Freitas, Leco Salazar, Wellington Reis, Lara Claydon, Vania Torres Olivieri and more.
Thanks to its high power to weight ratio and comfortable slim shaft the Surge is also the recommended paddle for SUP Foiling and is the paddle of choice for pioneers of downwind foiling including M20 Champion Annie Reickert, as well as Finn Spencer, Jeffrey Spencer and more.
Scooped Dihedral Blade Technology
The Surge blade is designed to correct poor alignment often associated with fatigue and injury. The deep Scooped Dihedral shaping holds the water securely through the power phase, eliminating lateral blade movement and delivering force in a smooth, efficient manner.
The extension of the tapered scoop towards the toe allows the paddle to remain stable and deliver power, even if you fail to get the full blade in the water. This toe shaping also ensures a clean catch and efficient blade release.
Overall, the Surge blade design delivers a predictable, powerful and efficient paddle stroke that encourages the use of smaller, more agile blades.
The shallow 8° blade angle results in a direct and positive feel through the power phase. The lower blade angle allows paddlers to enjoy a more aggressive and efficient paddle stroke. It also results in a slightly shorter paddle length.
Structural Blade Stability
The ridge along the front of the blade increases stiffness both vertically and laterally, resulting in increased strength. This structure helps the blade maintain better stability for a predictable feel you can count on.
The most striking aspect of the Surge paddle is the enhanced construction. Our Surge paddle line is equipped with a Texalium and Carbon shaft. Developed in San Diego, over time this material has proven to be superior–particularly for SUP paddles.
The increased impact resistance of Texalium helps protect paddles both on flights and in the impact zone. The silver finish also reflects UV rays, reducing sun damage and keeping the shaft cooler on the water—an important aspect for paddlers in excessively hot climates. Meanwhile, the textured Texalium shaft also enhances grip, while still being gentle on the hands.
We paired the new shafts with blades and handles in a red kevlar and carbon construction for a unique and sleek aesthetic. On the inside, we reconfigured our laminates to increase strength and reduce weight, while maintaining an optimized flex.
Lightest Surfing Paddle Available
Throughout the design process, all unnecessary weight was removed. This effort has resulted in the Surge being the lightest SUP surfing paddle available.
This reduced weight translates into an improved paddling experience, while also being easier on your body.
Reduced Board Damage & Increased Safety
We smoothed out all blade edges and incorporated our slim-line joint to make a sleek and efficient paddle.
The smooth blade edges increase safety, increases blade strength and reduces board damage. The slim-line joint system reduces drag through the water and prevents rail damage caused by hard edges.
