Information
The Black Project Hydro paddle is for serious racers who want more speed and reduced fatigue. Whether you are cruising your local lake or crossing channels in Hawaii the Hydro paddle is designed to deliver power while protecting your body. It combines exceptional power, ultimate stability and dynamic flex to help you paddle faster for longer. Throughout the design process all unnecessary weight was removed making this the lightest SUP race paddle available. This reduced weight translates into an improved paddling experience while being easier on your body. Thanks to the design and construction the Hydro paddle is also one of the strongest SUP paddles you will find and enjoys a near zero failure rate. 

The Hydro blade is designed to correct poor alignment often associated with fatigue and injury. The proprietary Scooped Dihedral shaping holds the water securely through the power phase of the stroke delivering power in a smooth and efficient manner. Lateral blade movement is eliminated and the toe shaping provides an efficient paddle release. The extension of the tapered scoop towards the toe ensures that the paddle remains stable and delivers power even if you fail to get the full blade in the water. The shallow 8° blade angle promotes an aggressive paddle stroke and slightly shorter overall paddle lengths. The slight ridge added along the front of the blade, increases paddle stiffness both vertically and laterally while resulting in increased strength. The edge was smoothed out to increase safety, increase strength and reduce board damage.

It comes with the Pro Carbon SDS shaft, 100% Pro Carbon shafts made in the USA, the weight, strength and responsiveness cannot be matched by other brands. Since the launch of these shafts Black Project has a near zero failure rate even in the most challenging of conditions. By working closely with USA based aerospace engineers they have increased the strength and reduce weight while improving the responsiveness of the flex for efficient energy transfer. Paddles are assembled with hot glue which enables easy adjustment while providing a water tight bond and added shock absorption.

The lightweight and ergonomic 100% carbon race handle fits to the palm of your hand for comfort over many hours and long distances.
