Versatile, strong and lightweight, the LAVA is your best bet if you want one paddle to do it all.

This full carbon paddle shares much of the same DNA as our premier race and surf paddles (HYDRO and SURGE), but features a more forgiving blade design that’s better suited for a less aggressive and lower cadence paddle stroke.

With brand new artwork for 2020, this do-it-all paddle stands out from the pack whether on the water or on the sand. The Lava also receives a major upgrade with a completely redesigned ergonomic clamp system  which is now available on both standard and slim shaft options.

The Lava blade was designed to be a little more forgiving & suit a less aggressive & lower cadence paddle stroke. Three blade sizes, two shaft diameter options, available in Fixed, Adjustable & 3-Piece Adjustable the Lava caters to all riders in all conditions.

Throughout the design process all unnecessary weight was removed making this one of the lightest SUP paddles available. For example; a Lava one-piece cut to 75″ (191cm) is only 15.7 ounces (456 grams) approximately 50-100 grams lighter than any other paddles in this price point.

The Lava adjustable weighs in at only 19.75 ounces (560 grams) with the 3-piece 20.6 ounces (585 grams). This reduced weight translates into an improved paddling experience while also being easier on your body so that you can enjoy more time on the water.

Thanks to the design and optimized construction the Lava paddle is also one of the strongest SUP paddles you will find, our paddles enjoys a near zero failure rate.

The Lava SUP paddle blade is designed to correct poor alignment often associated with poor technique, fatigue and injury. Our proprietary Scooped Dihedral shaping holds the water securely through the power phase of the stroke. Lateral blade movement is eliminated and the toe shaping provides an efficient and smooth release.

The extension of the tapered scoop towards the toe ensures that the paddle remains stable and delivers power even if the blade is not fully immersed. The moderate 10° blade angle promotes an a smooth paddle stroke and a little more comfort than the Hydro.

For the Lava we wanted a little more blade flex so the Power Ridge is more subtle than on the Hydro or Surge. The ridge increases paddle stiffness both vertically and laterally while also adding strength.

We smoothed out all edges to increase safety, increase strength and reduce board damage.

The Lava SUP paddles comes with our Reflex 90% carbon shaft. The smooth matte finish is great for grip and the medium flex generates power and reacts quicker than other shafts. Our shafts are engineered to protect your body so that you can paddle for longer without suffering fatigue or injury.

The 3-piece travel version collapses to a max length of 32 inches (81.3cm) this is both the lightest and smallest packing 3-piece travel SUP paddle on the market. Thanks to our HEX join there is zero twist or movement once assembled. Complete with padded travel case this is the ideal SUP paddle for those with limited storage space or those seeking adventure.

Our ergonomic 100% carbon handles come with a vivid red matte finish. The T handle is often preferred by paddlers in the surf and those with smaller hands. The flat front gives immediate feedback while surfing. The Palm handle is enjoyed by riders on flat water and those with bigger hands. The matte finish is ideal in hot or cold climates.

There is no one answer to a question regarding paddle length. For any given paddler there are a number of variables to consider when sizing your paddle. Below is a table which makes some suggestions based on the type of paddling you do, your height and what you ride. Too long and your shoulders will suffer whereas if your paddle is too short your back will feel the pain, get it right and you will feel comfortable over long periods.
