Da Dipstick by Bolt – Spring Loaded SUP Stick

15 Sep

SUP (Stand Up Paddle) skating is being lunged forward with Bolt’s new Dipstick. 

Having not worked my upper body since prior to an injury last February I finally got to take this thing for a test run yesterday. I was able to push three miles without putting my feet down on the ground once. SUP is always a great core workout but with the spring and a free spinning wheel you really get some help with maintaining momentum and softening harsh upper body jarring that can come from traditional push sticks.

Da Dipstick

Da Dipstick is super sturdy and well crafted here in the USA. I will be putting it through more durability testing in the coming weeks but it seems like it is very rugged. Of course with the solid construction and innovative functioning parts it is heavier than a bamboo stick. I personally removed the upper section and replaced it with a common rubber handle that I found in an odds & ends box at a hardware store. This brought the weight down a bit. I had no problem using it my first day out.

It seems like Da Dipstick will be bringing new dimensions to downhill carving. Checkout this short promo video to get an idea of the possibilities. Also checkout Da Dipstick’s Website for more information and to see photos of what an Australian skater is doing with it.
