Braca IV Surf Ski

SURF SKI MODEL

  • Brača IV Surf Ski paddle

 

Brača IV Surf Ski blades have a special reinforcement in the most stressed areas, which makes them suitable for paddling in the surf zone. When paddling on big waves, these blades have to withstand reverse forces when stabilizing or paddling backwards.

Surf Ski paddling requires a softer but more durable shaft, which has to be light at the same time. We developed the 19K shaft especially for this purpose, which is available in two stiffnesses (medium and soft). We recommend a stiffer shaft for bigger blades but any combination is possible. See the shaft stiffness measurement procedure and parameter table below.

Shaft Stiffness Measurement

All Brača IV Surf Ski paddles are available with an Adjustable Shaft System. This allows elegant adjustment of overall paddle length (within 5cm range) and blade angle from 0° to 80° right or left in 5° increments. The system also allows you to disassemble the paddle into two parts for easy transportation. IMPORTANT!
Always clean your adjustable shaft regularly!
Store your adjustable paddle disassembled if
not used for more than two weeks!
See the maintenance page for details.
