Werner Flow 85 Paddle


The wind, the water, the sun. Bask in it all and let the energy Flow through you.

“The blade POPS from the water.” When comparing the Ultimate performance level Flow 85 to our more modestly priced paddles, this is the one thing you will hear paddlers say over and over. Along with a buoyant feel the smooth back face feels great through the water during any stroke. Surfing, touring or getting your work in, out on, the Flow 85 steps it up in performance.

Clear selection

With decades of design experience, Werner saw a need to innovate blade shape. The Zen’s longer, rectangular, slender design is easier on the body with a more gentle catch. Higher cadence and less fatigue without sacrificing blade size and power.

The volume of a buoyant deigned fiberglass blade creates an exceedingly light feel. This POPS the blade from the water for effortless forward strokes and confident bracing. A smooth back face is quiet and helps to make linking turning strokes easy.

The Werner Flow 85 has a 10 degree shaft to blade offset. Designed to keep the blade more vertical through the power phase, it benefits your forward paddling, but still gives the surfer a good compromise in the waves.

Dihedral, the ridge down the middle of the power face, allows for smooth and stable forward paddling. A core philosophy for Werner.

Small sized 85sq” blade suits those wanting to limit exertion and to those of smaller stature to mid-size stature.

Shaft and Grip are available in Small Fit, the perfect fit for female paddlers (Fixed length only) or Standard Fit.

Premium Performance uses material choice and manufacturing skill to allow for a perfect combination of light swing weight and stiffness. Fiberglass blades and carbon blend shaft gives you a compromise between swing weight and value.
