Rated 1 out of 5 by from Handle locking mechanism failed after first year The adjustable length handle has a locking mechanism held in place by a small metal pin. Ours rusted through and the locking mechanism failed in the second summer we had the paddle. We were fortunate not to have lost the locking leaver in the water, so there is hope for a repair. The pin is probably ordinary steel, when it should be stainless steel or other corrosion resistant metal for a paddle at this price. The water in the river we are on is brackish (slightly salty), so this may have contributed to the rusting. However, with this defect, the paddle should be avoided. At this price point all materials should be first rate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This SUP paddle was exactly what I needed. Very durable and light along with reasonable price tag. The adjustment mechanism is also very user friendly. I would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adjustable - fit whole family This KIALOA Paddle is just right for you if performance, VALUE & top quality is your priority - the BONUS??? It is adjustable and can fit anyone - friends and family. I have used adjustable paddles before but none were as easy to adjust. The Insanity is comfortable and once it is adjusted it STAYS adjusted. Light-weight and strong - can't ask for more

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for River paddling I've used the Insanity this year in still water but the real test has been using it in a rocky river. I'm basically a novice river SUPer so I've accidentally scraped and hit rocks with this paddle, more than you would want. It has come out with no noticeable cracks. As far as paddling goes, it is stiff and handles great. The adjustment mechanism is robust, easy and easy to re-adjust because the handle has clear markings unlike other paddles I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice paddle, looks cool and functions even better. I've been using a kialoa SUP paddle for two years now. It works well, very rigid and light. No complaints!

Suitable for Surf?

Asked by: Pupster
The length of this paddle will work for surf, but most people will choose a paddle with a larger blade than this one when planning on using it in the surf.
