Braca IV Surf Ski

$495.00

Braca 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 – FastPaddler currently stocks SOFT). We recommend a stiffer shaft for bigger blades but any combination is possible. See the shaft stiffness measurement procedure and parameter table below.

Please contact us for fixed length/angle shaft (at lower price but generally not suited for surf paddlers) or other paddle configurations.

For the 19K shaft - enter a 10 cm range, for example 207-217 cm. You can also enter DO NOT ASSEMBLE.

Shaft Stiffness

Shaft Stiffness Measurement Process

Shaft stiffness is a deflection measurement. The stiffness # is the deflection in mm using a 10kg weight. A higher stiffness number means a softer shaft. We recommend stiffer shafts for larger blades but any combination is possible. Refer to the paddle configuration table for recommended combinations of blade and shaft. Contact us with any questions.



Maintenance

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Follow these instructions to keep your carbon paddles and adjusters in working order.  These instructions are especially important to prevent adjusters from becoming damaged or frozen in a locked position.
  • If used in salt water conditions, the adjuster, shaft, and paddle should be thoroughly rinsed in fresh water immediately after use.
  • If used in fresh water conditions, the paddle and adjuster should be thoroughly rinsed and cleaned every two weeks.
  • Store your adjustable paddle disassembled if not used for more than two weeks!
