The shape and size of the Trident blade are dedicated to a hobby type of practice. The surface of 83 sq. in. and its drop shape are ideal for you to tackle almost any type of condition and water surface, provided they’re not extreme. The paddle is versatile and very forgiving if you want to focus more on landscape than technique.
This is a nice blade with an open angle of attack and the famous dihedral and double concave water guide from Aqua Inc. This will allow you to minimize the “flutter” (oscillation of the paddle from right to left during of the power phase) while keeping a wide range of motion.
Aqua Inc. assembles the Trident paddle blade on demand, in five handle versions according to YOUR needs.
