If you're often out paddling in rougher waters, enjoy a more comfortable grip along with full carbon fiber efficiency with the Werner Bent Shaft Nitro Stand Up Paddle. The paddle's ergonomically shaped shaft enables a more natural wrist position and relaxed grip when you need a lot of hand to shaft contact to power through turbulent surf. The paddle's carbon shaft, grip, and carbon wrapped blade offer offer optimal power transfer with minimal swing weight. The buoyant foam core blade floats up at the end of the paddle stroke for more effortless paddling, and its progressive rectangular shape provides consistent power transfer when the paddle is dipped into the water at varying depths, while making it possible to paddle closer to the board for improved efficiency and comfort. New for this year, the paddle features three different blade size options to better suit varying paddler sizes and paddling styles: the small size is suited to smaller paddlers, those who prefer a higher paddling cadence or need to be gentler on their joints a medium size that fits the widest range of paddlers and a full size for larger, well conditioned paddlers.
