So I'm gonna head out to Glamis(my 1st time) this weekend w/ some friends and I know I need some paddles so heres the Q. What kind of paddles should i get?(not trying to buy expensive tires either because most likely i'll hardly ever use them) I'm probably going to be doin a little bit of racing but mostly exploring and getting to know the place considering its my first time. What else will i be needing? Where's a good spot? etc.......Just looking for some insight from those who have been there.
Thanks

this weekend will suck for ridin at glamis. the sand will be all tore up. not a good weekend to go for your first time. you will be using the paddles more than you think, you will get bit by the sand bug. i personally love itp sand stars. you dont need fronts just rears.

for 20bucks more it can't hurt,. what color rappy did you get?. i would get black rims if you can, they would look pretty crazy..

That's where I got my haulers for a little over $210. Haulers or Sandstars are both a great tire. As for rims I have .125 and have been fine. If you plan on jumping get the .190.
