Designed for serious paddleboarders who will appreciate the 100% carbon shaft, proprietary carbon reinforced resin blade, and contoured palm grip, the Aqua Bound Challenge is a lightweight and attractive paddle built to propel you further, faster. . Stiff, durable blade grabs more water and delivers more power with every stroke. The resin in the blade is more hydrophobic than most other molded blades, so it wont absorb water and pick up extra weight as you paddle. 100% carbon shaft offers both exceptional durability and super light weight. 10deg bend in the shaft allows for more comfortable paddling. Blow molded resin grip provides smooth paddling comfort. Eye popping Polynesian graphics make a bold statement on the water.
