The HYDRO Pro Race SUP Paddle is for serious racers who want more speed and reduced fatigue. Whether you are cruising your local lake or crossing channels in Hawaii the Hydro SUP race paddle is designed to deliver power while protecting your body. The Hydro paddle combines exceptional power, ultimate stability and dynamic flex to help you paddle faster for longer. Throughout the design process all unnecessary weight was removed making this the lightest SUP race paddle available. For example; a Hydro Pro 78 cut to 75″ (191cm) is only 14 ounces (396 grams) approximately 25-50 grams lighter than any other high-end race paddle. This reduced weight translates into an improved paddling experience while being easier on your body. Thanks to the design and construction the Hydro paddle is also one of the strongest SUP paddles you will find and enjoys a near zero failure rate.
