HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR BEST CARBON SUP PADDLE

CARBON ADJUSTABLE SUP PADDLE ANATOMY

MATERIALS

– BLADE CORE

PVC or Polyurethane are both lightweight materials that are used in making the carbon adjustable SUP paddles cores.

– SHAFT

Some paddleboard paddles that are marketed as carbon SUP paddles use fiberglass in making shafts many underneath layers with an outside layer of carbon fiber in order to lower their prices, so be aware.

High-price tags are something that you could rely on to when you are buying your completely carbon fiber SUP paddle.

OVAL SHAFTS VS ROUND SHAFTS

  • Round shafts: These have more flex, making them comfortable but they dont transfer well your energy to the water.
  • Ovel shafts: These shafts are more stiff, making them more respomsive but stressful on your muscles and joints.
ROUND SHAFTSOVAL SHAFTS
Their flex make them comfortable
Less powerful strokes
Responsive strokes
More stressful on your body

SHAFT FLEX AND SIZE

Shafts with minimal to no flex are ideal for strong or heavy paddlers due to their powerful strokes.

Thinner paddle shafts with a soft flex make ideal kids SUP paddles because they provide gentle strokes.

BLADE SIZE

Bigger blades that are ideal for heavy or strong paddlers suit best short distance SUP paddling like SUP surfing.

Due to the minimal drag, smaller blades are ideal for small and lighter paddlers in long-distance SUP paddling like SUP touring.
