  • With decades of design experience, Werner saw a need to innovate blade shape. The longer, rectangular, slender design is easier on the body with a more gentle catch. Higher cadence and less fatigue without sacrificing blade size and power.
  • Dihedral, the ridge down the middle of the power face, allows for smooth and stable forward paddling. A core philosophy for Werner.
  • When shopping our Standard Performance, you’ll see Werner's heritage for a better paddling paddle, at introductory prices.

    SUP Straight Shaft

    If one can commit to a good loose grip style of paddling, Werner's straight shaft option is solid choice. For the entry level paddler, it allows the ability to save and invest in lighter swing weight because straight shaft is less expensive. For others they simply like the traditional, simple feel of a straight shaft. The attention to detail in texture, indexing and flex allows for confident control and comfort all day long.
