The Evolution Bamboo SUP paddle combines striking form with the most advanced materials available today. The modern blade shape blends the control and predictability of a tear-drop blade with a racing paddle's power. This carefully crafted shape makes the Honu Evolution SUP paddle your single paddle quiver.

The double dihedral blade was painstakingly designed on a foundation of high-density PET foam to make the blade stroke smooth and controlled without feathering through the water. This feature will be appreciated by both beginners and experts alike. Six sheets of carbon and a single veneer of bamboo are carefully layered to create the perfect blade structure. The second dihedral profile on the front side provides the blade's rigidity, transferring every ounce of power from the paddler.

We paired the versatile SUP paddle blade with our 32mm carbon three-piece shaft for easy travel and storage. The shaft has been crafted from uni-direction and 12K pre-impregnated carbon. This high-quality finish provides the paddler with a textured feel that offers both grip and confidence.

We constructed both the blade and the shaft using pre-preg carbon. This process involves a technician meticulously cutting each shape by hand and pressing the layers into a mold. Once complete, the structure is cured under pressure and heat in an autoclave. This industry-leading process produces carbon structures that are ~30% lighter and stronger than standard carbon alternatives.

    Gratuitously nice!

    I couldnt help myself and I went top-shelf on the paddle packaged with my new Byron SUP and OH BABY! what a nice paddle. Firstly, when it turned up I wasnt expecting the paddle bag, that was an over-delivered discovery detail.

    Pulling it out of the bag it was plainly obvious that this paddle was pure class. One thing the immediately jumped out at me is the top handle is one-piece moulded to the shaft and not two pieces bonded together.

    The carbon quality is exquisite and the finishing detail top notch. With a raw carbon finish there's nowhere to hide imperfections and they've done a really nice job with this.

    I like the notch at the back of the shaft too which prevents it from twisting and the clamps that are used are quality.

    Blade is nice and it paddles very well with a very solid feel in the hand.

    I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this, nothing I would change at all.

    Final thoughts are have you seen the prices of top-end carbon paddles that are on the market? They are more than double this and some are not constructed in the same way as this is.

    If you pick one of these up its money well spent in my book. Quality and value all the way. Bravo!

    P.S. My glowing review makes me a little sick to be honest because it sounds like I'm a complete fanboi but it is that good and the value is that good and well, I probably have quickly become one.

    Carbon paddle

    After using a non carbon paddle for years, this is so light and efficient and reduces muscle fatigue from paddling. I LOVE it!!
