Paddle Air Ergo Inflatable Surf Top (Vest)
The first generation of PaddleAir gave lifelong surfers an edge in the rigors of paddling. Today, a second generation of dedicated surfers can reap the benefits of this proven technology with designs that conform to both short and long boards. The Ergo:
- Reduces repetitive stress injuries resulting from prone paddling
- Improves paddling position for more power-per-stroke
- Provides cushion to chest and protects rib-cage
The Paddle Air Ergo is inflated via a tube that runs around the front of the torso with the valve between the shoulder and neck. This allows for easy inflation whilst keeping the tube out of the way when surfing/paddling. It does not get in the way! Air is released by pushing the valve on the mouthpiece down. You will want to experiment with the amount of air in the vest for your needs – but thankfully this can be done easily.
Each Ergo style features a Neoprene front and a Lycra body that offers U.V. 50+ protection. The patented high-performance ergodynamic bladder is designed to conform and protect your rib cage and give you adjustable lift as you paddle.
The Ergo is designed to be worn on the outside — over your wetsuit or against your bare skin. Its smooth interior assures a comfortable fit and protects your skin or wetsuit from paraffin chafe. With a Paddle Air Ergo you’ll you’ll paddle stronger so you can surf longer.
The Paddle Air Ergo top will also fit underneath your wetsuit – tried and tested. This will reduce the chance of the vest “riding up” as you surf, although it has an elastic draw cord at the bottom of the vest.
