Hopu meaning "grab" in Hawaiian, this paddle is best for paddlers looking for a solid grab at the catch. Formally known as the "OC6 Hybrid" paddle, this paddle features a larger volume blade design with a double-bend shaft. The very slight scoop on the leading edge of the blade allows it to enter the water cleanly and with more width at the shoulders, this paddle packs a bigger bite at the catch than our original paddle. At the catch position, the double-bend oval shaft (smaller in diameter than our original paddle) promotes a comfortable, loose grip and relaxed wrist. The wood shaft is handmade.
