Rated 1 out of 5 by from grip painful for small hands, return shipping $97! I was excited to purchase this paddle, and my spouse, who has larger hands though it seemed nice (light, nice blade shape) but it purchased for ME, and I have size 6 gloves. For me, the underside of the grip is sharp and digs into my thumb tendon. It also did the same for a paddling buddy who also has small hands!. No way is this a family paddle -kids have small hands too! Plus, I live on the east coast, so returning it by mail or UPS is $97 - cheapest way - because the box is so long. Ill be driving to my closest REI to return it - 45 min. bad purchase!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most VERSATILE paddle ever! I have the family travel version of this paddle and it is the most versatile paddle I have ever owned. It is so easy to adjust the length and when broken down, it fits perfectly into my inflatable sup bag. The broad length range and smaller grippy shaft make it my go to for sharing SUP with friends and family of all sizes.

The Thrive 95 Family Adjustable Stand Up Paddle does float when assembled.
