CLUE… on the subject of sharks Ian Foo, of HYPR Designs recalled a story he heard from a customer who had purchased the 'Spear Flame' from him. The youngster was SUPing around 5:30 one evening on the Kona side of the Big island when a 12 foot tiger came up to try to bite him, so he used used his Spear Paddle to poke it's nose and push him away. Ian said that he also heard of a paddler who used it to hit a clown fish on the reef, and knocked it out — it ended up as dinner.
