The crème de la crème in SUP paddles, carbon from tip to tip and just over a pound in weight.

The paddle is a "cosmetic second", meaning the entire paddle is 100% structurally sound, but the finish will have slight cosmetic imperfections. All paddle components (shaft, blade, and grip) are standard, first quality parts that meet or surpass all benchmark testing. Standard imperfections can primarily be found in the blade and could include porosity, streaking, scratches, or inconsistencies in the laminated finish.
