Werner Rip Stick 89 3-Piece Adjustable Carbon Stand-Up Paddle - The Werner Rip Stick 89 3-Piece Adjustable Carbon Stand-Up Paddle is the answer to what stand up paddle surfers want, more power from a smaller blade. Smaller blades mean a higher cadence for bursts of speed, with a low-profile that won't trip up when executing turns. To generate more power Werner developed an innovative double concave dihedral in the power face of the blade. The power pockets created to accelerate into more waves, outrace outside sets and blast over foam piles. Along with more power, the double concave shape of the blade face creates a super stable stroke, for all the crazy angles you find yourself paddling. The Rip Stick lets you focus on catching the wave in the perfect position without worrying about your paddling technique.
