This paddle concept was created and shaped by legendary waterman Dave Kalama.
Its design features a unique scooped V section that edges create a double dihedral for enhanced stability during the power application. The colorful vector-net lay-up’s have the perfect balance of stiffness and flex in this hybrid construction. The paddle has all of the features and designs of its original all-carbon cousin but in this new hybrid construction, you get a little more flex than full carbon, but not as much as the fiberglass blade but some additional stiffness as a result of the carbon netting built into the paddle. This new construction comes an amazing array of new eye-catching colors.
With excellent torsional stiffness, they’re ideal for both surfing, touring and racing, while more forgiving on the shoulders and wrists than the all carbon version.
The results offer a very stable yet effective power phase with an effortless exit.
