Upgrade from your basic aluminum paddle to this light vibrant Starboard Enduro Tiki Tech paddle that comes in great graphics options. This sup paddle covers the performance middle ground between cheap aluminum paddles and the super expensive carbon paddles. Significantly lighter than aluminum, the hybrid carbon composite shaft also has a bit of flex that makes your paddle stroke more efficient. The wave and sun graphics come with a skinny 26mm shaft that is great for smaller hands. The enduro blade is a nice shape and size for recreational paddling, and is more durable than a carbon blade (so you don't have to worry about hitting the bottom when it's low tide). The well balanced all round blade has a new double concave that helped make the Bolt such a great paddle. The Enduro is more direct in the water: the first catch feels incredibly precise and powerful. You can paddle with an increased cadence due to a smoother waterflow around the blade and the low aspect design makes it easy to lift out of the water with each stroke and also great to lean on while wave riding.
