Stand Up Paddles for Racing, Surfing, Touring, or just puttering around.
Because the theory of correct paddle length is constantly being re-examined, lengths today are a bit shorter than just a few years ago. Here is a basic formula from Jim Terrell that we have adopted that seems to work for most paddlers.
How to choose your size:
For Racing-1. Take your height in inches. 2. Add 10%
For Surfing-Subtract 1 inch
For Touring Add 2 inches
Example: 6 foot tall =72 inches + 10% =79" for racing , -1" for surfing=78", +2" for touring=81"
These are recommended SUP paddle lengths by paddler height and are considered good choices for the majority of paddlers. Your personal preference may require a choice different from the above recommendations.
