COLLECTION ONLY FROM ABERSOCH!
Beach paddles are optimized for durability and ease of use for recreational paddlers looking for reliability and value. They’re simple, strong and ideall suited to club, rental and family use. Made with precision aluminum shafts and reinforced nylon blades. The 170cm fixed length size is ideal for smaller paddlers, up to 5’2”/1.60m in height.
The modern blade shape features a dihedral face for smooth paddling at all levels of power output.
The design and performance of our blade is based on the three phases of an efficient paddle stroke:
The Catch: Our blades are designed for a smooth entry into the water with minimal splash or blade rotation during entry. This allows the blade to become firmly planted in the water for the second phase of the stroke…
The Pull: This is where power is applied from the paddler, to the blade, into the water and is what propels you forward. Keeping the blade slightly narrower and longer than traditional SUP paddle blades gives you several “gears” depending on how deeply you insert the paddle into the water. Together with a slight dihedral in the blade it also reduces cavitation (flutter) for maximum transfer of power from body to blade to water.
The Recovery: Just as important as the Catch, a clean recovery minimizes power loss and maintains rhythm. The Beach paddle blade has minimal ‘curve’ in the blade and a thin profile. This allows the blade to “pop” out of the water at the end of the stroke quickly and cleanly. The thin profile also increases blade performance when feathering the paddle through the water, which is an advanced recovery technique used in many situations, from helping maintain balance to course corrections.
