How to Choose your Paddle

How to find the size you need in a SUP Paddle

As a general rule for sizing your paddle is to add 8 inches to your overall height to determine the paddle length. The chart below is based on that 8 inches. Depending on the type of stand up paddling you plan on doing, the size may vary. The reason we give a range is because of the differences in technique, boards and water conditions. While the data is unscientific, it is based on the trends we see with customers and professional riders.

 

  1. Surfing: 6-8″
  2. Flat water: 8-10″
  3. Racing: 10″-12″
