BRUISED RIBS? SORE BACK? NECK?
Ever spent a couple months out of the water? I did. And after hopping back in the water for a couple days I was on the brink of retiring injured. My ribs were swollen. T-shirts and rashies did nothing.
It’s a sad reality for all surfers. Being in the water day in and day out takes its toll.
That’s where US-based surf brand PaddleAir comes in. Owner, David Hilts has been creating inflatable vests since 2004 that put a thin layer of air between your ribs and the unrelenting glass of your surfboard. A sound investment for your weeklong surf trips, for people with injuries or just old blokes . . . or young blokes.
Hilts has a history in the wetsuit manufacturing business but with PaddleAir, is providing more than just the warmth of neoprene. His two major products, the Ergo and the Rib Rocket, are Hilts’ contribution and a welcome addition to the surfing community by benefiting surfers, like himself, with a lifelong commitment to the sport and lifestyle.
Hilts’ experience in the sporting goods industry has endowed him with the knowledge and desire to create a truly unique product aimed at making the surfing experience more comfortable.
