What Other Paddlers Are Saying
The downwind paddle covers are by far the best I've used. I have the pink and black covers, and will definitely be getting the large travel paddle bag too!
- Michelle Burn Multiple South African Sufski Champ, and current ICF World Champion.
Thank you Downwind Apparel for helping me look good off the water too! All the T-Shirt designs are very cool, and great quality!
- Quinton Rutherford NEW World Record holder for the furthest ocean paddle in 24hours - 227km
The surfski leashes are lovely colours, and most important, they are very easy to open and put on. They will never rust. I think it's a great innovation for sufski leashes around the world.
- Oscar Chalupsky Multiple Molokai World Champion, and world renowned downwind legend
