More Information – Hecklers and Slack-Ma

Hecklers: Did you know that if you surf 3-4 times a week, you are looking at nearly 10,000 paddle strokes in a month!

Here’s the math: Depending on the break and size of the waves, it takes anywhere between 30 and 70 paddle strokes to get out to the line-up. On average, it takes between 4-6 strokes to get onto a wave. If you paddle out 3 or 4 times a week for an hour session and catch an average of just 10 waves, you are looking at close to 2,500 strokes a week or nearly 10,000 paddle strokes in a month! Imagine increasing the efficiency of each of those strokes and what it will mean for your overall performance out in the waves.

Hecklers boost your paddle stroke! While we are still working on the mathematical formula to prove by how much our best estimates are by 20-25%. The noticeable impact is while paddling onto waves. The lead engineer, a surfing enthusiast for the past 30 years, claims with Hecklers, he now gets an astounding 99% of the waves he paddles for.

“I am not going to wear something that makes me look like a big kook!”

Neither are we. When Hecklers are worn with a black wetsuit or black long sleeve rash guard, they become virtually invisible!

But should they be noticed out in the line up it’s a bonus. From our experience, other surfers back down when they see the advantage you have boosting speed onto each and every wave!

Slack-Ma is being called the simplest solution to preventing “leash-slack toe-tangle” at pop up. It is superlightweight and flexible. When it is on, you can’t even feel it.


You paddle out to the line up and just clip your leash into Slack-Ma. It’s patent-pending design both shortens and guides surfboard leash slack away fromEliminate Surfboard Leash Toe Tangle your front foot. When you pop up, your front foot cannot accidentally pull the slack under it. When you wipeout, the leash pulls free and the leash cuff works as it normally does. You paddle back out to the line up, clip in, and repeat.

With Slack-Ma you will never miss another wave due to leash-slack toe-tangle again!

“I don’t want to damage my surfboard.”

No worries. Both products are made from ultra lightweight flexible plastic that won’t damage your surfboard. Designed by surfers here in California, we definitely don’t want to damage our boards.

“Why are they called Hecklers and Slack-Ma?”

With Hecklers we wanted to address the elephant in the room, the fear of paddling out and being heckled by other surfs by looking like a kook. The fact of the matter is that no one can see the products when worn with a black wetsuit. The irony is that you get to “heckle” others as you grab wave after wave!

Slack-Ma simply stands for “slack management.”

More Info on Hecklers: The human forearm is aerodynamic. By isolating the inside of the forearm, we began running experiments testing ways of increasing surface area. We kept in mind constraints, including bulkiness, weight, and focused on designs that would be low profile and almost invisible in the line-up.

The designs and materials used changed and improved and were tested over and over again in a 9-month period.

We used formulas created for testing paddle propulsion to calculate maximum efficiency. There are many variables that change from surfer to surfer that also have an impact on paddle speed including strength, weight, and volume of the surfboard.

The final, patent-pending design is what you see. The half cylindrical shapes create the right amount of resistance to boost thrust, biting into the water and releasing it through the stroke cycle. Hecklers are ultra-lightweight and because of their flexibility, they won’t damage your board.

This is your chance to get ahead of the rest. Boost your thrust in each of next month’s 10,000 paddle strokes! Click below and order now to get your set of Hecklers and Slack-ma for the seriously, unbelievably low price of $19.99.

See you out in the waves…
