Standup paddling isn’t just a single sport, but rather many different watersports wrapped up into one incredible community. Paddlers may come from different backgrounds, but ultimately discover that SUP’s appeal comes from its diversity of opportunities. Just consider that an avid standup paddler could embark on a surf trip to Costa Rica; an epic freshwater expedition in the Great Lakes; a ripping downwinder off the coast of Maui; a high-adrenaline whitewater river run in Oregon; a thrilling race at the legendary Carolina Cup—the aquatic possibilities are near limitless, just add water. While its always best to have multiple SUP paddles in your quiver (a Hydro FlowX for racing, a Surge for surfing, etc.) we understand that many folks are looking for an all-around carbon paddle that works well in any SUP discipline. Versatile, strong and lightweight, the Lava is your best bet if you want one paddle to do it all.
