The HYDRO Pro Race SUP Paddle is for serious racers who want more speed with reduced fatigue. The Hydro combines exceptional paddling power with ultimate stability. The ergonomic engineering and optimized flex characteristics will enable you to paddle faster for longer whether you are cruising your local lake or crossing channels in Hawaii. hydro paddle, sup paddle blade, hydro blade, hydro sup paddle, hydro pro, hydro 3-piece paddle, black project, sup race padde, stand up paddle, carbon race paddle, lightweight race paddle, black project paddle, fastest race paddle, paddle board, black project paddles, lightest sup paddle, made in USA. The Hydro proprietary blade holds the water securely generating smooth power delivery while eliminating lateral blade movement. The ‘Scooped Dihedral’ design grabs the water while enabling efficient release. On entry the blade corrects for poor alignment often associated with fatigue. The extension of the tapered scoop towards the toe ensures that the paddle remains stable and delivers power even if you fail to get the full blade in the water (common on downwinders). The drive is concentrated in the balanced sweet spot for a smooth and constant delivery during the power phase of the stoke.

We added a slight ridge along the front (forward facing) of the paddle, this increases paddle stiffness both vertically and laterally while adding increased strength. We smoothed out all edges to increase safety, increase strength and reduce board damage. 88 sq in paddle, 83 sq in paddle, 575cm2 paddle, 535cm2 paddle, hydro paddle, hydro sup paddle, hydro pro, hydro 3-piece paddle, black project, sup race padde, stand up paddle, carbon race paddle, lightweight race paddle, black project paddle, fastest race paddle, paddle board, black project paddles, lightest sup paddle, made in USA.

Since the launch of these shafts we have a near zero failure rate even in the most challenging of conditions. By working closely with USA based aerospace engineers we were able to increase strength and reduce weight while improving the responsiveness of the flex for efficient energy transfer. Our premium paddles are assembled with hot glue which enables easy adjustment while providing a water tight bond and added shock absorption. The Hydro is available in 100% Premium Carbon, 100% Carbon and 100% Carbon 3-piece Travel options. Our 3-piece travel paddle features two of our unique HEX joins for a secure and twist free fit, finally you can have the performance of a race paddle and the connivence of a travel paddle. paddle shaft, sup shaft, sup paddle shaft, lightest sup paddle shaft, hydro paddle, hydro sup paddle, hydro pro, hydro 3-piece paddle, black project, sup race padde, stand up paddle, carbon race paddle, lightweight race paddle, black project paddle, fastest race paddle, paddle board, black project paddles, lightest sup paddle, made in USA.

“From flat water training to downwind Maliko runs, the Hydro felt smooth and powerful for its size. The blade encourages a deep, thoughtful catch, and delivers a progressive drive throughout the power phase." TJ, Big Winds, USA

"To me it feels like what my ********** ******** paddle was trying to be.” Patrick, CA, USA

"Super lightweight with an amazing catch, very powerful and still super smooth! The blade design allows to really put the hammer down when needed and go for speed with a high cadence.” Jeurg, CA, USA

"The Hydro is a quick paddle and I can get a higher stroke rate compared to what I am use to.” Carsten, Denmark

"Thank goodness the Hydro has such bite, it really helped me stabilize and power on, especially during the 2nd lap at PPG when fatigue was starting to creep in.” Michael, CA, USA

“While sprinting I was consistently one knot faster than with my previous paddle.” Tom, PA

There is no one answer to this question. A large range of methods for choosing your paddle size have been floated over the past couple of years. In general paddles have become shorter during the past couple of seasons. For any given paddler there are a number of variables to consider when cutting your paddle. Below is a useful sizing chart which makes some suggestions based on the type of paddling you do, your height and what you ride. Too long and your shoulders will suffer whereas if your paddle is too short your back will feel the pain, get it right and you will feel comfortable over long periods. The use of hot glue enables you to easily shorten your paddle, our recommendation is that you leave your paddle slightly longer and then cut down if required. If you are unsure about what length you need please get in contact and we can discuss.
