Aqua Paddle Inc. with Victory 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 515 and 640 grams depending on the version.
The shape and size of the Victory blade are specifically designed for whitewater, sea and SUP surfing. You can also use it for longer distances in flat waters for a touring practice.
The blade has a concave shape, has a W-shaped water guide on the inner (rear) side. This is to minimize the “flutter” (oscillation of the paddle from right to left during the power phase) and increase control while allowing excellent energy transfer to water.
Aqua Inc. assembles the Victory blade paddle on demand, in five shaft versions according to YOUR needs.
