Polu means "Blue" in Hawaiian. With a slate-grey fish scale graphic under a glossy finish, this design is best for paddlers looking for a softer catch on entry, but with significant surface area to firmly hold once planted. Polu features a rounded leading-edge design allowing a clean entry with less initial impact. The slight scoop towards the bottom keeps the water on the correct side of the blade without sacrificing an efficient exit. At the catch position, the double-bend oval shaft promotes a comfortable, loose grip and relaxed wrist.


HCRA approved conforming paddles.

Standard sizes: 47-52, Custom sizes: any size lower than 47, any size higher than 52, and half sizes. Select the correct size in drop down.
