Paddle Board Paddle Length Recommendation

What is the ideal length for my SUP paddle?

Your paddle board paddle length is a very important aspect of having an enjoyable paddle boarding experience. What we generally recommend is is 8-10 inches over your head from the tip of the blade to the end of the handle. This will allow you to get the entire blade into the water without bending your back too much. However, we recommend trying it at various lengths to see which fits you best. Our paddle board paddles are extremely easy to adjust the lengths as it can be done in a matter of seconds. You simply loosen the paddle clasp, adjust the height to your liking, then tighten the clasp. For a more detailed explanation, see our dedicated page on choosing your SUP paddle length.
