The small size blades of the Twist make it the best fitting play paddle for the smaller sized whitewater paddler. (Match it with our Small shaft option for even more precise fit.) This shape was a major innovation to play boaters, by setting the standard with down turned blades. This Werner design innovation gives immediate directional control in rudder and draw strokes, for surfing or setting up today's most advanced whitewater tricks. On the wave or throwing down river, take your Twist along for the ride. Fiberglass blade construction gives you a compromise between swing weight and value.
