Inspiration for the Oz-Ezyrider Paddle Keel Board
On a nice sunny day I was sitting near the harbour waiting for my lunch. As I was looking down on a small beach, I saw a man trying to get on his paddle board with no success.
I felt sorry for him, he would try to stand up on his board but each time he tried the board would just flip and move away from him time and time again. In the end he just gave up, threw the paddle to the side and just ended up laying down flat on his board using his hands to paddle the board.
Paddle boards are like small yachts, and a yacht would not be stable without a keel. This is where the paddle keel board started to become a reality.
How It Works
Paddle boarding can be quite challenging for most of us. This new innovation in paddle boarding will take away any worry you may have about this great sport. The paddle is inserted through the board, making a keel which gives the board stability. Hold the paddle shaft to help you stand, when you have your balance remove the paddle from the insert and make way with ease.
Here is a video demonstrating someone using the Oz-Ezyrider paddle keel board. Our lovely young Jenny is on the 11′ x 32″ Oz-Ezyrider board. This was her first time not only on the board, but her first time paddle-boarding! Jenny is now our number one fan, and has become part of our team. You can meet Jenny at our trial days,and have a go yourself.

We are looking to raise funds so we can bring this wonderful product to the market. For the last three years, this project has been self-funded. The funds I seek would assist with:
– the manufacture of our Oz-Ezyrider boards, and land our first container of the boards to Australia for sale and distribution.
– the cost of shipping and goverment fees/taxes.
