Aqua Paddle Inc. with Aloha blade.
Available in 5 variations: from 1 section with shaft cut to your size to 3 sections.
Flexibility index of the shaft of 20 or 40 to accommodate your practice (will depend on the chosen shaft).
Weight between 500 and 615 grams depending on the version.
The shape and size of the Aloha blade are dedicated to a touring practice. The large area of ??95 sq. in. and its drop shape are ideal for practicing Surf SUP. The paddle is large enough to strongly press on the water, during a change of direction for example, and allows a very important power transfer.
It is a nice blade with an open angle of attack and a dihedral central water guide. This will allow you to minimize the “flutter” (swing of the paddle from right to left during the power phase) to control the direction.
Aqua Inc. assembles the Aloha blade paddle on demand, in five handle versions according to YOUR needs.
