The Element Paddle combines a virtually indestructible nylon blade with the same high quality carbon-fiber shaft found on our more expensive Evolution paddles. The carbon shaft not only makes the paddle lighter and stronger, it features a flex pattern that is easier on the paddler and more responsive in the water, making it easy for beginners to become confident paddlers.


The reinforced nylon blade is the most durable blade type available and will stand up to the harshest treatment. Reinforcing ribs run from the shaft connection down the center and edges to produce a strong and responsive blade. The 'V' notched handle ensures it does not twist and stays aligned with the blade. This makes quick out on the water length changes easy. 


Like all Honu products, the Evolution Paddle is designed to last and isn't a throw-away entry-level paddle often found in the market. Long after paddlers decide to upgrade to a higher performance carbon blade, the Element remains a reliable back-up option.

Quality!

Paddle is solid, light weight, and comes apart making it compact. It comes with it's own soft case with shoulder strap, and fits easily in the backpack of the Byron 10-6. I really appreciate the adjustability and markings for length so that you can adjust it specific to each rider consistently.

Disappointing

I am very disappointed in this paddle. I am a very experienced paddler, 4'10" tall 130 lbs. I added this board (Bondi) to my others to use specifically for small surf. I love the board...but wish I had shopped elsewhere for a paddle.

I realize this is your lower end offering, but I didn't expect it to be this heavy and over-engineered. It's cool looking and the bag was a nice touch and unexpected. However, it arrived with areas where the fiberglass mesh was showing through on the blade. I didn't return it before use, considering this just aesthetic, and no big deal. After paddling with it a few times though I regretted keeping it. The blade section fills with water making it even heavier if submerged. None of my other paddles have this issue.

It's also very awkward! It does not feel balanced and is difficult to feather between strokes. The large oddly curved blade shape catches on stroke release and makes finessing the paddle in the water or out a chore.

As for being over-engineered; the lower clamp, in addition to the button that secures the blade to the middle shaft, is in the way and seems to exaggerate the awkwardness and lack of overall balance I experience with this paddle.

I really wanted to like this paddle, but have reverted to another I already own.

It leaves me wondering what my options are for credit or return of this paddle at this point?

Thanks for the feedback Kim,
We are sorry you have not been happy with the Element paddle and would have happily exchanged it for one of our paddles better suited to SUP Surfing had we known about the problems.
The Element paddle isn't one we ever recommend for SUP surfing for several reasons, but the one most relevant to your issues is the blade size and design. This is something we will take into consideration and look to update our descriptions to highlight it's use more clearly.
Please get in contact with support if you would like to return the paddle as we never leave our customers unsatisfied with our products.

Solid

Have only used the paddle once but happy with performance. The case it comes in is nice as well. My only complaint is that the paint on the blade must have been wet when it was stowed in its case because a section of paint came off blade and stuck to the inside of case.
