Lightweight and Easy to Use

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my go to paddle for all adventures. It’s lightweight and easy to adjust for paddlers of different heights and it packs up nice and tight into a travel bag or the trunk of your car. Exceptional design at an affordable price.

Love this paddle for traveling as it’s light and easy to pack up. I take a lot of different sized clients and friends out on the water and the adjustability is great for folks to get a quick custom fit for their height. Well designed, and easy to use this is a great all around paddle for someone who travels or likes the convenience of saving space and storing it in a smaller area such as the wheelie bags that the inflatable SUPs fit in.

You'd never know it's a travel paddle!

The overall design is based off the efficient and indestructible paddle that Hala has been making for years. Travel paddles generally tend to be watered down versions of a real paddle with weak interfaces and dumbed down blades. Not so here! This is a carbon shaft paddle with an indestructible blade and thanks to the very clever lever lock on the shaft it paddles like there's no separation at all. I was totally amazed that this paddle feels just like a solid shaft, but can be broken down for travel. It has the lever lock adjustable t-grip for paddlers of all heights. A solid choice for a paddle that performs well and is easy to store.
