One paddle for the whole family.
When the entire fam-damily wants to learn how to SUP, start small with a single Venture Aluminum Adjustable Stand-Up Paddle from Surftech. With this adjustable paddle, everyone in your crew can learn to SUP without you having to spend substantial dollars on individual paddles. Once you're sure the SUP bug has bitten and is firmly affixed, then consider investing in individual propulsion devices. Until then, this durable paddle will serve the balance-challenged beginners as well as the slightly seasoned river rats well as you SUP over smooth lakes, little waves, and everything in between.
The aluminum shaft is hardy and durable. Beginners can bash the shaft
against the dock, the water, or the SUP without fear of causing permanent paddle
injury. Up top, the T-Grip handle fits naturally into most people's paws so you
don't suffer claw cramps in the middle of your SUP lesson. The plastic blade
won't inflict fatal wounds on an inflatable SUP and shouldn't show chips or
chinks of accidental contact with solid, inanimate objects like rocks and
docks. A slight angle to the 8.5-inch wide blade makes it easier for you to slip
the paddle into the water and slide it out. With a range of lengths from 67 inches all the way to 83 inches long, you'll be able to fit almost every SUP-ing family member with a single paddle.

My first paddle...
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I just bought my first SUP and I needed to get a paddle. Well, this one looked to be mid-priced aaaaaand it's adjustable!
After using it for a few weeks now, I should have anted up and sprung for a carbon model. The weight of most carbon models are at least half, if not more. On top of that, I really don't need the adjustability it provides either. I suppose if I had multiple people using my SUP then yes; but alas, it's only me and the lady (she's only 2 inches shorter than me) so a one-size would have been totally fine.
As far as functionality / adjustability, it definitely takes some finagling to get it into place and then you're good to go. On another note, it also makes creaking noises when paddling furiously. However, if you slow your roll, it's quiet as all get out.
Anyhow, next season I'll be upgrading to a carbon paddle. You live and you learn!
