It can be hard to choose the best Carbon Fiber SUP paddle, but our top five list will help you!
The reason people choose carbon fiber SUP paddles over cheaper plastic or aluminum paddles is because carbon fiber paddles are stronger, lighter, and float if dropped. This is not to say an aluminum paddle is cheap and nasty, but they tend to not be as durable.
A carbon fiber SUP paddle is also much stiffer than their cheaper counterpart. This means you gt a better stroke, which in turn means you do not need to paddle as much as you would if you had a cheap aluminum SUP paddle.
When choosing from our best Carbon Fiber SUP paddle list, you also need to decide on what sort of blade you require. If you are looking to predominantly go surfing, you would be looking to get a thinner blade, as this allows you to turn better and be more maneuverable in the water. If flat water paddling is more what you are looking to get into ,then a wider blade will allow you to have a deeper paddling motion, allowing you to move faster across the water with less paddles required.
Paddle length is another factor when deciding from our list of best carbon fiber paddles. A SUP paddle that is too long can tire your arms, whereas a paddle that is too short can cause back aches/pains do to you having to “hunch” over.
Again, it tends to separate depending on your intended purpose; for those looking to surf on their paddle board, look to have your blade approx. 6-8 inches taller than your height. for flat water paddling, you want a SUP paddle that is approx. 10 inches taller than your height.
So, without further ado, lets check out our list of best Carbon Fiber SUP paddles!
