HOW TO CHOOSE SUP PADDLE?
When purchasing each package with a MOAI board, an aluminium paddle is included. But what if you want a paddle made of a different, maybe lighter material? Remember that in our offer you will find paddles made of various materials, such as: glass fiber, aluminum, bamboo + glass fiber/carbon, carbon. Each of our paddles is adjustable, so you can adjust them perfectly to your size! If you still have doubts about the right size, in this post we have a guide just for you.
A paddle made of carbon is the lightest, so you won’t get tired quickly. Generally, a lightweight paddle is preferred, but keep in mind that you usually pay more for less weight. If you only paddle a few times each year, weight doesn’t have to be your top concern.
The size, shape, etc. of the paddle blade define how the blade moves through the water. So choose a blade based on the type of paddling you do, your body type and personal preference. Usually, the larger you are, the bigger you’ll want your blade to be. If you’ll be doing something other than recreational touring, such as surfing or racing, you may need a different length. SUP surfers usually choose a paddle that’s a bit shorter than touring length, while racers typically go a bit longer.
