race_hawaii_logo.jpgRace Hawaii has unleashed initial previews of the forthcoming Race Hawaii Power Glider. Paddle makers are scratching their heads in awe over the high-tech patent-pending Star Grip that looks like it came straight from an episode of Star Wars.

I ran into Race Hawaii founder Scott Bucknell in a surf lineup on Oahu’s North Shore and demoed a prototype. It was a small day, and I saw Scott paddling out with the most unusual piece of equipment I’d ever seen on the water. More curious than skeptical, I was excited when Scott handed me the paddle and I was off. To my surprise, the paddle felt very natural and the workout was intense. From my experience with the Power Glider, a focused 20 minute paddle out using the Power Glider feels as if it compresses about an hour’s workout into that short amount of time.

Now, the next question is, what's going to happen when the Power Glider enters competitive racing?

For a limited time, Race Hawaii is giving a sneak peek the patent-pending Star Grip Power Glider. Get your pre-release peek at

Scott I really think you got something here! Keep charging and don't give up your ideas!

Maybe not just for flat water fun:

I have known Scott Bucknell for almost forty years. He was shredding Pipe, Velzyland, Laniakea, numerous others when I was a kid. Always innovative, persistant amongst other character traits. If you have never had contact with this man..... sorry for you. This is the most radical, inovative development I have ever seen in the surfing world.Ken Bradshaw will surfing Jaws with technique such as this .........soon enough. Kirby Pope

I don't mean to sound negative but... IMO.. that's not stand up paddling.

It's more like stand up kayaking even if using a stand up paddle board.

That paddle must be at least 10' long and also pretty heavy... No thanks.

Once I thought about the design and how it might be used, I think it's a very good idea.
