ZX4 Blade: Lighter and stiffer
New for 2015 are the ZX4 blades on the PowerSurge SUP in both medium and the popular high aspect outline.  Keeping with the proven shape of the PowerSurge blade the change here is the use of a new carbon fibre fabric.  Many brands will say they’ve made amazing improvements year on year to drive their marketing, ZRE are more subtle and look for ways to evolve their successful products and this really is a great option for your customers to consider.  The new material  for the blade surface is TeXtreme.  Lighter and stiffer so making the ZRE SUP paddle even more desirable, not to mention the great look!

ZRE SUP Paddles (Zaveral Racing Equipment) one of our top selling paddles.  ZRE (Zaveral Racing Equipment) are the leaders in the field for lightweight, efficient paddles and the highest performing paddles we have supplied.

ZRE are one of the lightest top quality SUP paddles available! With a strong heritage in carbon paddle design and construction ZRE (Zaveral Racing Equipment) are the leader in the field for lightweight, efficient paddles having supplied top international athletes since the 90’s and are designed by professional canoe paddlers and Olympians, which translates into a phenomenal SUP paddle.

All of our SUP paddles will float at any finished length. The paddles are suitable for stand up paddlers of any height with the paddle maximum length of 220cm. All paddles can be supplied without the handle fitted: the shaft can therefore be cut down to the right length before the handle is inserted and glued to the shaft tip. The most important factors in choosing the length for your paddle are your height and the type of paddling you'll be doing. Use the selector below to help find your ideal paddle length for standup paddle surfing. This is a guide only: personal preference is also an important factor. We can also supply all paddles cut to the correct length with the handles fitted.

POWERSURGE 7.75",  7.5" & 6.5" paddles are ideal for medium weight paddlers in SUP'racing, Sprinting and SUPsurfing allowing for higher cadence to give phenomenal acceleration, while the 8.0" and 8.25" are great for cruising and adventuring for the heavier paddler, The Powersurge with its more 'teardrop' form, with less pronounced shoulders but still ample to tuck under the rail of the board. The dihedral (spline) and slight concaved tip provide a powerful, will balance blade, that allows for a very 'zingy' entry and exit and high stroke rates when needed. The design allows for equal power (grip) associated with a larger blade area, without the disadvantages of added drag especially at the exit and entry phases of the stroke. One of America's most sought after racing blade.

Blue Chip tests the High Aspect Paddle design

  • You will feel the extra length of the High Aspect blades right away. You will immediately feel the benefit of the extra reach with the high aspect blade as well as superb catch on the blade entry coupled with a seemingly effortless recovery phase of the stroke.

  • The narrow blade profile provides a comfortable connection from the moment the blade enters the water. “High Aspect” blades slide effortlessly into the catch phase with no big snatch of load on the blade as you power up compared to the “tear drop”. As you progress into the “power” phase and squeeze the blade further below the surface the catch remains positive throughout the “power” phase.

  • A not insignificant benefit of high aspect blades is the lack of effort required for the recovery element. The high aspect blade will just slip out of the water sideways with very minimal resistance

Dihedral or no Dihedral – that is the question.

  • Lower aspect blades: These seem to work best with a dihedral to help stop the feathering during the power phase, however, the dihedral should only be slight as the objective of the blade is to remain stationary in the water, therefore a dihedral should not come in to play until the blade is pulled through the water.

  • High Aspect blades: These seldom have dihedrals designed in. High aspect blades typically have very subtle design features like rebound scoop tips which negate the need for dihedrals and allow the blade to catch and remain static in the water.
