Hydro SprintX

SUP Race Paddle For Short & Middle-Distance Racing
( 6 )



The first paddle made specifically for sprinting and short-distance races. The Hydro SprintX was designed to help paddlers push their limits with maximum acceleration and top speed. Every feature of this paddle is optimized for speed and winning races. With a 7.5° blade angle, a shallower power pocket, and a wider and more compact blade outline––your first stroke will generate an instant burst of acceleration. We also reduced the blade volume to speed up entry and exit, helping you maintain an extremely fast cadence for sprinting.



The all-new Tour Carbon shaft series is a key component of the Hydro SprintX that brings reduced weight, added power, responsiveness, grip, and comfort. The tapered oval design increases stiffness in the lower shaft area for enhanced stability and power transfer to the blade. The more flexible and thinner round upper section helps to reduce fatigue. The oval-shaped middle-grip area provides a directional feel and a secure grip with a natural carbon-textured matte finish. Our lightest, most responsive shafts are built with 30T carbon. The Tour series offers four distinct profiles, each with various length and stiffness options.



The award-winning hollow carbon PowerGrip ensures that every ounce of effort is translated into forward motion; the ergonomic design maintains comfort throughout extended paddling sessions.



Unveiling our latest innovation, the Hydro SprintX features REACT+ Technology (RE+T). This incorporates two external 30T UD carbon plates, amplifying blade power, responsiveness, and energy return. Strategically placing these laminates on the outer layer of the structure multiplies the overall effect, resulting in an impressive stiffness-to-weight ratio. The RE+T is tuned for each blade size, ensuring optimal flex tailored to paddler size.



Utilizing our Advanced Flow with Power Scoop technology and built with 30T carbon and Kevlar, this is the fastest accelerating paddle on the market. If you are serious about winning, the Hydro SprintX belongs in your paddle quiver for short-distance racing, technical racing and sprinting. Due to it’s power and acceleration the Hydro SprintX is popular for downwind SUP foiling.



All Hydro SprintX paddles come complete with our Paddle Bag ($125 value).

  1. Brilliant paddle for sprints and short tech racing!

    jane.rattanachai-December 15, 2023 at 2:49 pm

    This paddle really exceeded my expectations! Amazing for sprinting as you’re able to keep a fast cadence and more importantly I’ve noticed hardly any shoulder fatigue. If you’re looking for a sprinting paddle this is it!

  2. This paddle grabs hard, and is solid throughout your stroke

    gentsch-May 14, 2023 at 9:11 am

    I really like this paddle. It surprised me as my old BP travel paddle is a great paddle but not my favorite. This one piece Hydro Sprint-X is a game changer. It plants hard and is smooth and firm as you pull through the stroke. It exits cleanly and is super light and stiff but not abusive on my old joints. I got it for short races, but have used it on up to 10km races and still love it. When unstable it feels more solid when i brace… yeah i don’t get this one but it does to me. This is the best BP paddle for me, it is fantastic!

  3. Great SUP foil paddle

    vince.gorman-May 14, 2023 at 3:23 am

    I’ve been getting into DW SUP foiling lately and this paddle has opened up the types of bumps that I can catch. It has good power when paddling slow and once you get a little momentum going it has really good power when paddling fast. I weigh 150lbs and the medium blade seems to fit me well.

  4. Hydro SprintX continues the legacy

    James Nickerson-May 13, 2023 at 8:36 am

    This paddle delivers on its promise of immediate power to accelerate off the line, Ultra-light weight and a cleaner blade help make for a super fast turnover in sprints and technical races. I’ve been paddling the Hydro FloX for a couple of years and, as an intermediate paddler, I found it very easy to adjust to the Sprint version. The shortened blade means your don’t have to plunge it quite as deep for a good catch and the decreased paddle angle means you get your power phase sooner in the stroke and can initiate the recovery just before your feet. Like all of BP paddles, you need to try them to fully appreciate the difference.

  5. The SprintX is a killer paddler for downwind SUP foiling!

    docmick7-May 12, 2023 at 10:59 pm

    I have been testing a few brands of paddles to find the most efficient paddle to use to get up on foil for downwind SUP Foiling and SUP surf Foiling. SprintX checks that box better than anything else out there! Efficient, light weight and nice and perfect amount of stiffness and flex in the right places so your shoulders are not worn after a session. Plenty of power when i need it which is from the first catch on the first stroke. I am 93kg and chose the XL and was the perfect size for me. Thank you Chris and the BP team for such a great paddle!

  6. A powerful addition to the BP quiver!

    Randy ‘Miles’ Hendricks-March 29, 2022 at 1:05 pm

    “My new SprintX is a powerful addition to the BP quiver, which includes the HydroX! Two bags (great design with many excellent features) hold two superb paddles depending on my mood, conditions, and desire for pure stiff power vs. power with a bit of flex (slim shaft on the Hydro). Thank you BlackProject for providing an excellent experience – from ordering to timely advice and guidance from Chris to super fast shipping and well-protected packaging of the paddle. From Miles in Spokane to Black Project in Maui, aloha and gracias.”
