You want a nice, lightweight composite paddle for yourself when you are on your paddle board. So why would you expect your kids to use a heavy paddle? You finally got your mini-me out of the house, into the great outdoors, and off of an electronic device ... encourage them to stay out longer with a nice paddle! The light weight and youth sized blade means you can cover more distance before the "I'm tired" starts. The smaller diameter shaft is easier to hold onto for smaller hands and the length is suited to kid size as well (works great for kids who are about 4' tall to 5'5" tall). The great looking orange blade makes the paddle easier to find when it has been tossed at the edge of the water when there are crabs to chase.
You can be sure of solid construction and durability from Bic. The twin-pin adjustment collar is simple to use and won't get easily jammed with sand, and if the sturdy plastic adjustment collar does break it is easily replaced.
Great performance and light weight in a kid's sized SUP paddle. The FP stands for fiberglass shaft and polycarbonate blade and the kid size has a 65 square inch blade and a smaller diameter shaft for smaller hands, adjusts from 59"-74" long.
