Michael H.wrote a review of Kialoa Methane Stand-Up Paddle on October 23, 2012
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Purchased the Methane from backcountry and received the paddle damaged. Very disappointed initially, wanted to take advantage of last few good SUP days in New England. I get wet when I paddle board--which I like. Backcountry made it right by ultra fast replacement and refund thanks to Chelsea B. and Rachel. my son and I thank you all for your service. Don't hesitate buying this awesome paddle due to price or shipping!
Now the paddle: Very little water experience with SUP paddles, but I researched and handled many names and materials before purchase. Love this paddle! Super lightweight and easy to use. No rail banging nor fatigue after miles of paddling--awesome! Can't wait until next season!
