Aqua Inc is fast becoming a driving force in the paddle design field for lightweight, efficient construction and the highest performing paddles in their price range. Aqua Inc 100% carbon paddles can cost considerably less than some glass or hybrid paddles on the market.

Trident  blades have the trademark trident profile which gives an immediate solid lock for the initial catch  which then allows the paddler to convert 100% of their power stroke into forwards motion with minimum slippage and zero flutter. The Tident 6.7" paddles are ideal for light to medium weight paddlers in SUP'racing, Sprinting and SUPsurfing allowing for higher cadence to give phenomenal acceleration. These are also great for relaxed cruising.

The Trident paddle blades are available with round shafts, oval shafts or 3 part travel shafts







Victory  blades have the trademark trident profile which gives an immediate solid lock for the initial catch  which then allows the paddler to convert 100% of their power stroke into forwards motion with minimum slippage and zero flutter. The Victory 7.5" with its rounded edges could benefit the more powerful paddler and is great for cruising and adventuring, The Victory with its more 'teardrop' form, has less pronounced shoulders but still ample to tuck under the rail of the board.

The "V" dihedral and slight concaved tip provide a powerful, well balance catch, that allows for a very positive and high stroke rate when needed. The Trident design is fast becoming a popular profile which gives great power transitions usually associated with a larger blade area, without the disadvantages of added drag especially at the exit and entry phases of the stroke.

All of our Aqua Inc SUP paddles will float at any finished length. The paddles are suitable for stand up paddlers of any height with the paddle maximum length of 83" All paddles can be supplied without the handle fitted: the shaft can therefore be cut down to the right length before the handle is inserted and glued to the shaft tip. The most important factors in choosing the length for your paddle are your height and the type of paddling you'll be doing. Use the selector below to help find your ideal paddle length for standup paddle surfing. This is a guide only: personal preference is also an important factor. We can also supply all paddles cut to the correct length with the handles fitted.

Blue Chip tests the High Aspect Paddle design

  • You will feel the extra length of the High Aspect blades right away. You will immediately feel the benefit of the extra reach with the high aspect blade as well as superb catch on the blade entry coupled with a seemingly effortless recovery phase of the stroke.

  • The narrow blade profile provides a comfortable connection from the moment the blade enters the water. “High Aspect” blades slide effortlessly into the catch phase with no big snatch of load on the blade as you power up compared to the “tear drop”. As you progress into the “power” phase and squeeze the blade further below the surface the catch remains positive throughout the “power” phase.

  • A not insignificant benefit of high aspect blades is the lack of effort required for the recovery element. The high aspect blade will just slip out of the water sideways with very minimal resistance

Dihedral or no Dihedral – that is the question.

  • Lower aspect blades: These seem to work best with a dihedral to help stop the feathering during the power phase, however, the dihedral should only be slight as the objective of the blade is to remain stationary in the water, therefore a dihedral should not come in to play until the blade is pulled through the water.

  • High Aspect blades: These seldom have dihedrals designed in. High aspect blades typically have very subtle design features like rebound scoop tips which negate the need for dihedrals and allow the blade to catch and remain static in the water.
