It is a Straight Shaft with a kicked out blade.
I raced with this paddle a few weeks back and managed a second place finish. The fiberglass shaft has a lot of good flex and power., The foam core Carbon Blade was really light and powerful even on Lap 6. The Adjustability was firm with no play once locked in place. I will admit it was not the paddle I was planning on using for the race, but it worked beautifully. This is a great paddle for anyone needing a high performance paddle that can be used for other SUP'ers of varying height. I think this paddle is a really great value at under $250
Great multi sport shoe! If you want a comfortable and supportive shoe that can literally be used for Light Back Packing, Trail Running, approach shoe, Hiker..etc... you get the picture. I really like the ION Mask technology. It does not keep your foot dry like the previous reviewer stated, but it does keep your shoe from getting heavy and soggy when doing stream crossing and in wet weather as the Ion Mask does not allow water to absorb into the fabric and also helps with the stink factor.
The Shubu rocks! Literally. This is a great all around travel board and an excellent down river board. The drop stitch construction gives the board extreme rigidity and response when inflated properly. The UV resistant rubber is really strong. you can bounce off rocks, and run into things with out the worry of dinging your board. The Soft flex fins and removable middle fin is also a nice feature. I really like that everything you need comes with it. A barrel pump that goes both ways, a repair kit, and a great bag with shoulder straps that carries your board and all the gear. A perfect travel companion. I took mine to Mexico over the winter and it counted as my 1 piece of checked luggage with no extra charge. Nice!
I use this paddle a lot in Rivers and the Dynal blade really takes a beating. The wide catch of the paddle blade gives excellent power per stroke. The fiberglass shaft adds to the power with a good natural flex and a solid response. Because this paddle is so durable I end up using it most of the time.
I would size up. Because of the water proof liner the tend to fit a little bit more snug that a regular boot in the same size. With it being a winter boot as well you will most likely be able to wear a thicker sock more easily.
Great paddle. easy to adjust. Really good power from the blade. Good for river, lake or ocean.
Just took out this board for a surf session. Super stable! Just about anyone could go out on this board and be successful from day 1. Doesn't surf to bad either.
When I flew to Mexico with mine in December on United it counted as my 1 piece of checked luggage, so there was no charge.
