    The Naish Makani Vario adjustable stand up paddle is designed for high-performance SUP riders who appreciate the finer nuances of a lightweight, responsive paddle.

    • 8 in. blade is ideal for medium to light paddlers using a high-cadence stroke rate used during flatwater tours and racing
    • 8.5 in. blade is designed for medium to heavy paddlers using a mix between high-cadence stroke rates and power strokes for touring or surfing
    • 9 in. blade is designed for large paddlers who want the most power from every stroke; ideal for surfing and applications that focus on maneuverability
    • Carbon fiber and Kevlar® shaft provides an extremely lightweight, stiff and responsive connection to the water; shaft material also increases impact resistance
    • The Naish Makani Vario stand up paddle adjusts from 64 - 89 in. using an easy flip-open tab; flip open tab on ferrule, adjust length, and then close tab to lock down shaft
    • Adjustable length is ideal for switching between a long stroke when touring and a short stroke when surfing; also great for sharing with friends of differing heights
    • Vertical markings on the shaft help ensure you adjust the T-shaped handle in alignment with the blade, and horizontal markings adjust the length of the paddle
    • Fiberglass and carbon-fiber blade provides responsive power, and blade shape pulls smoothly through the water
    • Tough fiberglass edge protects the blade from impact with barnacles, rocks and other perils of the water
    • Hollow, T-shaped grip fits naturally in your hand and includes a coating that allows you to maintain your grip when wet

    Loading Ratings & Reviews...

    Naish Makani Vario RDS Adjustable Stand Up Paddle is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and Strong This paddle is only a few ounces more than my one-piece carbon and I use this one the most. Fully adjustable and made to tight specs (you can feel resistance when pushing the t-grip downward - all that air being compressed) this paddle is easy to share, easy to transport, and easy to use. The blade edge protector is easily installed with electrical tape and helps keep my rails ding free. I have used this on flat water and in small surf without any issues. It certainly floats rather high in the water for an adjustable-length paddle too. Note: The different blade widths have slightly different shapes and depth to them: the larger blades have stepped grooves toward the edges.
