So many different styles of SUP paddles are being produced these days and it can be very confusing on which one to choose.
I use a fitted carbon fiber paddle but my blade is itself is basic fiberglass.
I do not professionally race so a little extra weight doesn’t bother me.
When shopping for the next board be sure to pay attention to the paddle. Many of these companies are sending the huge scoop paddle and I’m not a fan of this kayak style of Blade for stand up paddle boarding.
Blue Planet Surf shares a great article that breaks down the paddle.
