Most of the Earth is covered by water, so it makes tons of sense to make sure your SUP setup is up to snuff. You won't get anywhere without a paddle, and the Kialoa Tiare Stand Up Paddle is a women specific offering that's tough, light, and versatile enough to handle whatever kind of paddling you prefer. The ABS handle provides secure and comfortable grip, and the fixed length shaft serves up plenty of power and control without being overwhelmingly stiff. By building the shaft and blade from fiberglass, Kialoa ensured that the Tiare can stand up to rocks, children, and repeated abuse. It was made with ladies in mind, so Kialoa designed it with a slimmer shaft and smaller blade and constructed the blade with a ten degree bend that helps you nail a repeatable and efficient stroke. The Tiare weighs well under two pounds, too, so it won't weigh you down when you're cruising small waves, exploring the coastline, or searching out some middle of the lake solitude.
