How To: Adjust Your SUP Paddle

BOTE Ambassador Erin O'Malley explains how to adjust a SUP paddle to your height.

Making sure your paddle is properly adjusted for your height is vital to ensuring a great paddling experience. Before adjusting, be sure that you are on a flat surface with bare feet. Next, open the clamp at the top and raise the shaft until your arm is at a 45° angle. Next place your paddle in front of you and look down the saft at the blade, adjust the handle back and forth as needed to ensure it is straight and in line with the paddle blade. Finally, close the clamp so it is secure and you are ready to get on the water!
