PADDLE PILLOW PRO
Created by a Lahinch Local surfer.
It’s a small waterproof inflatable air-pocket which you drop into your wetsuit and position cross-ways above your chest-bone. If it is not comfortable, it's either too inflated and/or not in the correct position so play around with it 'til it feels right!
Discrete and light, Paddle Pillow won’t weigh you down. Plus it’s re-useable, just keep it with your gear and avoid sharp objects otherwise it will burst (it is a bubble of air after all!)
Even if you don’t suffer from back problems, this might help you prevent them in later years whilst providing additional paddle power to give you more water-time.
The pro version has a light felt coating.
