We Stand Behind Everything We Make

SIZE YOUR STAND UP PADDLE

There is a lot to consider when choosing the correct paddle length. The reason we give a range of paddle lengths for each stand up activity is because of the differences in paddling postures, paddling techniques, board styles and water conditions. Use this chart as a starting point.

Race:               Add 4" – 10" to your height

Surf:                Add 4" – 8" to your height

Whitewater:    Add 4" – 8" to your height

All Water:        Add 6" – 10" to your height

Take into the consideration the following:

  1. The majority of paddlers will fit in the middle of the range.
  2. If you have broader than average shoulders or longer arms, go to the high end of the range.
  3. If you paddle with a more upright style of paddling, go to the high end of the range.
  4. If you paddle with a more bent over style of paddling, go to the low end of the range.
  5. If you have shoulder or elbow problems, go to the low end of the range.
  6. These are general guidelines so please take into account your personal preferences and proper biomechanics for paddling.
