Like our original Puakea paddle, our new OC1 paddle features the classic teardrop blade design with a double-bend shaft. The very slight scoop on the leading edge of the blade allows it to enter the water cleanly, with a nice catch, yet allows it to exit quickly and cleanly as well. At the catch position, the double-bend oval shaft (smaller in diameter than our original paddle) promotes a comfortable, loose grip and relaxed wrist. The wood shafts for our hybrid paddles are hand crafted by Maika Scott in California.
