If you're just getting into stand up paddleboarding, the Aqua Bound Spark 2 Piece Adjustable Stand Up Paddle is a perfect starter paddle. The paddle includes a number of features that facilitate comfortable paddling with less effort, and its aluminum shaft is more affordable than comparable carbon shaft offerings while only 4 5 oz heavier about the weight of your smartphone. The aluminum shaft is both strong and corrosion resistant, and the lightweight molded resin palm grip allows you to comfortably hold on to the paddle for extended lengths of time. The paddle's fiberglass reinforced resin blade is both stiff and light for better power transfer with less effort, and is shaped to smoothly glide through water with less drag for an easy paddle stroke. The paddle comes in two different sizes, each with ten inches of adjustability so you can customize the perfect length for your height and paddling style. It breaks down into two separate pieces when you're done using it for easier transport and storage.
