Whether you're paddling through pitch black sea caves or blissfully cruising beneath a canopy of star lit skies, the Torch 72in SUP Paddle not only lights up the path ahead for easy viewing and navigation, but it also projects up to 10 meters below water, illuminating wildlife, vegetation, and rocks under the surface. The paddle itself is highly efficient, with a carbon fiber shaft and glass filled nylon blade for powerful paddle strokes. 100 square inches of blade surface area ensure quick and easy forward locomotion, regardless of whether you're paddling on glassy lakes or wavy ocean bays. Featuring a powerful 720 lumen output and 150 degree beam projection, the Torch Paddle shines up to 45 meters above water for negotiating your SUP through the darkest of nights. Plus, its waterproof rubber seals and epoxied connections keep water from seeping through and compromising the paddle's electrical inner workings. It runs off 8 batteries for some 40 hours of nighttime fun.
