Kialoa GL Surf II Blend Paddle
Cocoa Beach is becoming a bigger and bigger hotbed for SUP surfing. Get into the mushy beach break waves we have with ease with the updated Gerry Lopez surf paddle by Kialoa. It’s a favorite SUP surf paddle for the locals. But certainly it will work well at any break from Florida to Hawaii!
Recommended length for our paddle surfing crowd depends on a number of variables including experience level, riding style, and the thickness of your board’s rails. A safe bet is to get the paddle cut to 6-8″ over your height, but many more progressive paddlers are going as short as head high!
The GL Surf, (named after Gerry Lopez), created a ripple in the stand-up paddle surf community. Introduced in 2014, this surf specific paddle features a symmetrical blade for easy skimming and rounded blade edges that will protect your board and not bury the edge of the blade. In 2015 the paddle has been improved by responding to requests to make it slightly smaller, which is exactly what Kialoa did. The carbon/fiberglass shaft on this paddle is ideal for those who desire a little flex while dropping in. The GL Surf II is available with a Carbon Ergo-T™ grip. Designed for surfers by surfers.
