Black Project Surge Paddle Texcarbon
The lightweight, powerful & responsive SUP paddle for surfers
The SURGE Pro Surf SUP Paddle is for paddlers who want to improve their surfing and stay in the water longer. The Surge offers more power, lighter weight and increased maneuverability. Throughout the design process all unnecessary weight was removed making this the lightest SUP surf paddle available. For example; a Surge Pro 82 cut to 70″ (178cm) is only 13.6 ounces (385 grams), at least 50 grams lighter than any other surf paddle. This reduced weight translates into an improved paddling experience while being easier on your body. Thanks to the design and optimized construction the Surge is also one of the strongest SUP paddles even in extreme Hawaiian surf.
The Surge SUP surfing paddle offers you the quick bursts of speed needed for catching more waves. We added a little more power to the blade to cope with highly oxygenated white water which offers less resistance. On entry the Surge blade is designed to correct poor alignment often associated with fatigue and injury. The proprietary Scooped Dihedral shaping holds the water securely through the power phase of the stroke generating a smooth and controlled power delivery. Lateral blade movement is eliminated and the toe shaping provides an efficient release. The extension of the tapered scoop towards the toe ensures that the paddle remains stable and delivers power even if you fail to get the full blade in the water, which is common if you are scrambling to make it over the set or paddling on a small and unstable SUP surf board. The shallow 8° blade angle promotes an aggressive paddle stroke and slightly shorter overall paddle lengths. We added a slight ridge along the front of the blade, this increases paddle stiffness both vertically and laterally while adding increased strength. We smoothed out all edges to increase safety while surfing, increase strength and reduce board damage.
TEXCARBON Construction – Our lightest, strongest & Most Technically Advanced Paddles Yet
The most striking aspect of the new paddles is the enhanced construction. Our 2019 paddle line is equipped with a Texalium and carbon shaft, a material developed in San Diego, CA, that over time has proven to be superior. Texalium has some fantastic properties to offer SUP paddles. The increased impact resistance helps keep the paddle safe during flight or in the impact zone, while the silver finish reflects UV rays reducing damage and keeping the shaft cooler on the water—an important aspect for some of our paddlers in the Middle East and other excessively hot climates. The finer 2k texture of the Texalium shaft also helps to enhance grip. 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. Not only are the TEXCARBON paddles the lightest and strongest made to date, they also look pretty cool!
