Outer Reefs Uncharted Territory for PaddleAir

One of the best things about working for PaddleAir is hearing from our users how PaddleAir has helped them in the water. I plan to share as many of those stories as I can here on this blog and encourage you to e-mail me (, or post your comments.

Over the years, we’ve had numerous users tell us how the product has helped them deal with physical injuries ranging from lower-back and neck strain to serious bumps on the chest. I know it means a lot to PaddleAir founder Dave Hilts, who is actively involved in medical pursuits. He loves it when someone comes up and says how the product has helped them and says it’s his greatest reward.

Recently, we got word from one of our users that PaddleAir helped them in other ways. I found the story very interesting. Here’s the deal. A group of guys discovered an outer reef along an isolated part of the West Coast. It was a good wave, but it was out there. Like really out there. A long walk, and a long paddle to surf an un-gunned outer reef. There were no nearby places to launch a boat or jet ski, but these guys were dedicated to surfing the unknown spot.

One of them bought a PaddleAir and discovered that the inflation made it easier to paddle out to the spot. He found that he got out there with more energy and could catch more waves. It wasn’t long before his crew noticed, and viola, they all ordered the product!

Great story for us, and I thought it was cool that these guys found a way to get to their secret spot by using PaddleAir.

Let me know what you think, and how PaddleAir is working for you. And no, I can’t tell you where this secret spot is other than it’s somewhere between Newport and Newport!
