Staff Review: "The foam core is probably the coolest feature in that, it will bring the blade back to the surface of the water, making it feel like you are paddling down hill. The blades are large enough to speed up to catch a wave yet small enough to not be tired out easily after paddling longer distances. 5 stars" - Luca

High Angle paddling is typically a more aggressive style of paddling for those with more performance aspirations. The more vertical entry of the blade to the water (Through out the stroke the top hand should be about forehead height in this style) keeps the paddle closer to the boat and in turn allows for better tracking. More efficient as the boat travels along a more direct path. Due to the higher hand position, this style does wear on the smaller support muscles when proper technique is not used. Our high angle blades are designed shorter and wider, to match this steeper entry angle to the water with the perfect use of the blades surface area. High Angle designs work best when used with shorter paddle lengths of 205cm - 215cm. The combination of shorter paddle length and a shorter wide blade allows the right amount of balanced blade area to enter the water sooner, supporting a faster cadence, without having to over extend the upper arm. Our high angle designs HAVE a slight dihedral for smooth vertical maneuvering strokes. Note we also flatten the back face spine to aid in these strokes.
