... because a man who eats with one chopstick goes hungry.

Play Boaters like the white water, but Paddle Surfers go for the green…
…and once we are on the green, it’s less about the paddle and more
about the wave. With our backs against the wall, our paddle needs to be
compact and stowable. The length of the paddle needs not only to provide
a fast ‘side to side’ transition, high stroke rate, and tuckability, but also
needs to assist with effortless rolling. The ‘catch and grab’ of the blade
needs to be quick and complete. This blade was designed to push the
‘catch’ to the far ends and maximize the usable shaft length.

Paddle and Surf your way to peace and prosperity…
that’s Double Happiness.

The Double Happiness was designed by our friend Nigel Law, of
Savannah Canoe and kayak.

BLADE LENGTH AND WIDTH:   39.5 cm x 22 cm
APPROX. WEIGHT AT 180 cm:   33 oz
