Whoever smelt it dealt it.

You don't become Kialoa's best-seller for no reason, and the Kialoa Methane Stand-Up Paddle has several. Inspired by surfboard shaper Blane 'Methane' Chambers, this carbon fiber paddle's lightweight design won't leave you gassed after a day in the blue.
  • Carbon build provides superb strength at a low weight
  • An eight-inch-wide blade helps you make quick starts and turns at a steady cadence
  • A slimmer shaft helps cut down on weight without sacrificing strength or stiffness
  • Unidirectional Ergo-T design handle provides a natural feel in your palm and assists with blade control
  • Blade covers 97 square inches of surface area, which provides maneuverability without the unnecessary addition of weight
  • Made in the USA
  • Item #KIA0001

Lightweight and Perfect

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love this paddle because it gets you moving well but doesn't tire you out as quickly as some of the really fatty paddles. It's a great weight as well-not too light that you can't really wail on it. I love pretty much all of the Kialoa paddles. You really can't go wrong with them!


  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My mom really likes this paddle! It is very light compared to other ones she has used in the past. It was easy to cut down to the proper size, just need a decent hack saw! Also the blade is not too big so you don't have to be a body builder to make clean paddle strokes.

New to Paddle-boarding with Methane

  • 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!

Methane Review

    I am 5'8" and was getting worn out using a larger blade. I did my research and found that Kialoa had the perfect lineup. No reason why my wife should be using the same sized blade I am and no reason for me to use the same size blade as Laird. With Kialoas 4 different sized blades, I was able to pick the perfect blade for my size and style of paddling. That blade for me was the METHANE. If you are looking for a blade that will allow you to have a higher stroke rate, yet still give you power when you need it, look no further. The Methane is your paddle.

    PROS- Oval Index, Super light all Carbon shaft/blade, cool graphics, small/med sized blade allows higher stroke rate, MADE IS USA

    CONS-$339 price tag (But still worth every penny) If the $$$ is too expensive, check out the Kialoa Pu Pu paddle. It is the same sized blade as the Methane but with a fiberglass shaft and a thermoplastic blade. I think it retails at $150. I tried it and liked it, but once you use an all carbon you can't go back.

    Does the the handle come pre-glued in the paddle or can I cut to my preferred length and glue in myself?
