Key to the performance of the Starboard Enduro Tiki Tech 2 Piece Adjustable SUP Paddle is the medium dihedral designed into the blade. This key piece of designed helps to stabilise the blade of the paddle in the water as the storke is drawn back through the phases. While it’s low aspect (rounded design) makes sure it is very manageable in the water and offers a good quick release, making setting up for the next stroke a breeze.
The shaft of the Starboard Enduro Tiki Tech 2 Piece Adjustable SUP Paddle is Starboard’s Hybrid Carbon shaft which is 10% lighter and stronger than the 2015 model. With a diameter of 40mm, the shaft of this paddle is flexible and transfers energy in a more gentle way, making it well suited to long distance paddling and higher cadence.
While the hybrid carbon shaft is great to paddle with, it is the Tiki Tech finish of this Starboard Enduro 2 piece SUP Paddle and the resulting hard wearing surface that allows this paddle to go on and on, thanks to its scratch proof surface. Add to this the high density PVC core within the blade being light yet tough thanks to the addition of a colour coded ABS rail running around the entire blade of this paddle.
