What paddle?

You have the choice between an adjustable paddle or what is referred to as a custom-made fixed paddle. If you opt for an adjustable paddle, it is generally because you are a beginner, that you alternate with a few sessions of walks in addition to surfing, or that your board is shared in co-ownership. And in this case, an adjustable paddle can have its interest.

A custom made paddle will be more beneficial if you are more in the water to surf and you know the size of paddle that fits you well, usually this will be very close to your own size. A fixed paddle will be lighter, its flex will be evenly distributed along the shaft.

In surfing, we will use a paddle to size or even a little more. On a large board like the NFA 12′ you can use a paddle at + 10 cm, if on the contrary you are aiming for more aggressive surfing on a Zero 9′ for example, a paddle at your size will be much more suitable. Hand changes are faster, and remember that the radius of your turns is partly determined by the length of your paddle.
