SUP sticks | stand up paddle board paddles

Bamboo makes a better paddle. Built tough for the whitewater of the Rocky Mountains, our lightweight, beautifully hand-sanded bamboo shaft lets you paddle longer. The natural flex of our bamboo allows you to feel the reaction of the water, making advanced paddle strokes (such as bracing) feel like second nature.  Choose from 3 fiberglass blade colors and infinite lengths.
