The Naish Makani CarbonGlass Paddle's combination of lightweight materials and fine tuned, durable construction make it as swift and powerful as Hawaii's tropical makani, wind. The 75% carbon fiber shaft uses filament wound Kevlar to reinforce bend and break prone areas and provide a textured grip without adding weight. A UD carbonglass matrix along with ABS rail softens the flex of the blade for a versatile and forgiving performance while surfing, and a low swing weight when you're trying to keep an aggressive cadence. From the traction coated Tahitian handle to the precision cut blade, the Makani paddle is perfectly aligned to optimize every stroke and reduce the risk of injury. Light enough to carry for hours with enough surface area and durability to power into any wave, Naish's best all around paddle is designed to race the wind or feel it rush by as you drop a face.
