SUP Paddles – Tips for How to Buy One

When buying an SUP paddle for your inflatable paddleboard, consider an adjustable version. There are a few reasons for this.

First, you can adjust the paddle to be used by people of varying heights. If you are buying a family board or think you may let someone borrow your board sometime, this can be a nice feature to have.

Second, some adjustable paddles also break down into shorter sections and can be transported more easily on a plane or car.

Third, you can make length adjustments for yourself for different styles of paddling. For example, in Stand Up Paddling: Flatwater to Surf and Rivers, paddler Ken Campbell says he typically uses an 85 inch paddle, but when he’s paddling distances, he prefers a longer length. In addition, when paddling upwind in a kneeling position, it can be more comfortable and easier to shorten the paddle.
