(San Clemente, Calif.) — Riviera Paddlesurf announced today it has added a new paddle to their ever-growing SUP paddle line, the Riviera BUMP paddle. The Riviera BUMP paddle comes in 2 blade widths, 8″ and 8.5″, and is the most technical paddle Riviera has made to-date. The BUMP features the same blade shape and shaft as the Vantage series, but what differentiates the BUMP is the added carbon fiber weave around the shaft that gives it a bumpy feel, and added grip. Other features include the Ergo Grip Handle that fits perfectly in your hand, providing a secure grip and a satin finish that gives it a stealth look, but also adds a textured, gritty feel.
Riviera began making paddles in 2008, and has grown the line to offer six paddle designs in multiple blade sizes and colors. The Riviera Paddle line ranges from aluminum adjustable paddles for adults and kids, up to ultra-light carbon fiber paddles for elite paddlers, and everyone in between.
