San Diego, CA June 15, 2011 – Tower Paddle Boards, an emerging design and innovation leader in flat water SUP and paddle surfing boards, announced the debut of their direct to market carbon fiber SUP paddle. It’s an ultralight SUP paddle, but also extremely durable and well designed. Tower will be selling the paddle for $189. Comparable paddles sell at retail for $250-$300.
“We cut a chunk out of the pricing of high-end paddles by selling direct, ” said Tower SUP founder Stephan Aarstol. “But we didn’t cut any corners on building in durability and a quality construction to an ultra light carbon fiber SUP paddle.”
Tower Paddle Boards’ Carbon Fiber Paddle only weighs 21.5 ounces when cut for someone approximately 6’ tall. It’s light, easy to use, and all for a very competitive price. The design of the blade features teardrop shape with a slightly flattened bottom edge. The face of the blade angles forward about 10 degrees and there is a slight cupping back near the bottom.
“When purchasing a paddleboard I didn’t take into account a paddle so I just grabbed the cheapest one” said Rick, a customer of Tower Paddle Boards. “After using Tower’s ultralight carbon fiber paddle, I understood what a difference the paddle makes.”
