Arguably a paddle is equally if not more important than the board you are riding or intending to buy. It’s amazing how a good paddle can significantly improve your paddling experience whether for recreation or at a competitive level.

Buying your own board and all the accessories that go with it is a big outlay for a lot of us. Consider getting a good paddle as your first purchase allowing you to hire boards until you find the perfect board for you!! Try a demo paddle at one of our sessions or contact Maree at SUP Tonic 0499 973 995.

Why is a good paddle so important?

  • They are light
  • Some have more flex reducing stress on joints
  • Increased performance
  • Comfortable to handle
  • Improves paddling experience

Important tips when you invest in a carbon paddle

  • Do NOT lose it. Make sure you ALWAYS put your paddle in the car first!
  • Protect the blade from paddle strikes with rail tape or electrical tape.
  • Label it with your number in case it gets lost so it can be returned to you.
  • Add it to your insurance items
  • Keep stored in protective cover
  • Keep out of the Aussie heat!
