Proudly made in the USA! This strong, lightweight Stand-Up paddle is warranted for one year against manufacture's defects. The ZRE ZX4 Stand-Up Paddle is lightweight 1oz - 2 oz lighter than our standard SUP. The ZRE Stand-UP Power Surge blade design is curved at the bottom blade, and is slightly concave on the power face for a quick catch. The rib design assures positive tracking through the water, eliminating flutter. The one piece carbon fiber shaft is tapered oval, providing strength, comfort, and positive tracking.
