Kialoa GL Surf Oval Carbon

by: Kilaloa

The GL Surf was developed and tested by famous surfer Gerry Lopez and KIALOA's Dave Chun. It was designed specifically for surfing with the strength needed to brace and turn. The blade shape is symmetrical front to back, ideal for skimming on either side, but with a slight hook at the tip of the powerface to give you the catch you need to get into the waves. The rounder edges of the blade provide better impact resistance as well as protecting your board rails. The shaft of the GL Surf is an oval, pre-preg, full carbon weave that is as strong as it is light. The overall high quality components of the GL Surf create a top of the line surfing experience. Assembled in the USA from US and imported parts.

How to SIZE YOUR SUP Paddle

As a general guide for sizing your surf paddle add 8 inches to your overall height to determine the paddle length. Our chart is based on 8 inches. However, depending on the type of paddling you intend to do, it may vary. The reason we give a range is because of the differences in technique, boards and water conditions.  While our data is anecdotal, it is based on the trends we see with our customers and team riders. 


  1. Surfing: 6-8"
  2. Flatwater: 8-10"
  3. Racing: 10-12"
