About

So were checked in on our land paddle the molds are complete for 3 different springs and a standard pole that will collapse down to 30" and extend to 6 feet. We are super happy with how its turned out so far they work better than we had hoped and we plan to continue to work on, refine and produce more innovative products in the future but we need to get our feet wet sometime so here we are. We want to hear from you and get your thoughts on what you like or do not like so we can concentrate on the good stuff and save our time on the not so good stuff. 

Here are just a handful of things to think about, The land paddle and clips are a must so lets move onto the next items. 

1) Adjustable height truck system allowing you to raise lower one or both trucks so you can work different core muscles, low ride the setup for beginner riders who will feel more comfortable close to the ground. The main thing is this provides you riding options that you may come up with that we have not even thought of yet. 

2) The Add-on kit allowing you to put a water bottle holder or a flash light holder to any deck. There maybe other things that we can easily integrate to the setup as well who knows. 

Other than those items its really just about color and customization. We will upload a color palate so if you are looking for custom color options you will see all colors available to you. The carbon fiber is really my paddle of choice, I like it extra tall so at least 6' 6" even just a bit taller depending on the deck I am riding. 

Braap Clips work on most any size board. The example below shows a cross over configuration.

 Braap Clips are only 3/8 of an inch tall when collapsed.

Handle your setup easily while out and about, also stores better when you have everything in one place.

Our final design if users want it is a single pin and injected molding since the one you see here is 3d printed. We can skate on it fine and like how it feels when we ride it. Let us know what you think..

Risks and challenges

We have already hurdled the major challenges when it comes to the BraapStik land paddle, we have molding and received production worthy product from the manufacturer.

Challenges will be that it is just 2 good ol boys making this happen and it is our first rodeo so we will be paying close attention to quality and how everything comes in on a large order. Also were super interested on how big of an order should be made. Our supporters are getting a huge price break on items because your helping us get things rolling.

One risk we hope to mitigate using you guys and gals here on kickstarter is knowing what colors are preferred, length of handles are preferred. Do you like the fluff of the add on pack that allows you to take flashlights to provide light or to carry a water bottle on longer rides. We like them but do you like them? let us know what you think so we can spend time on making epic happen.

Our custom skateboard that allows you to adjust each truck independently offers some pretty cool things and were working out the heights, wheel size and length of the deck to make sure it works just the way we want. Let us know your thoughts on that. We think it offers those of you looking for a better core workout the best options available. This will be its own manufacturing challenge so if your interested be sure to let us know and we will make it happen.
