Brača XI Van Dusen ’92 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 prodecure and parameter table below.
