Disclaimer: Once you add this item to the cart, checkout and complete the order, our team of paddlers will quickly start working on your order. Here at Bending Branches, we build all of our paddles to order. As soon as we receive your order, a real person in our Wisconsin factory starts crafting your paddle. Most paddles take 1-2 business days to build and will ship shortly after. You'll receive tracking information as soon as the paddle ships.

The newly-designed Balance stand-up paddle is just that – a wonderful "balance" of performance, comfort, and beauty. This paddle’s smaller blade (just 85 sq. in.) is handcrafted of beautiful basswoods and red alder, and has a squared-off profile that grabs water to deliver a powerful stroke. The blade is edged with our Rockgard® protection to protect both the blade and your board. The Balance has an all-carbon shaft with a 10° bend, making this a durable and very lightweight stand-up paddle.

Taken all together, the Balance is a great choice for the high-cadence, serious paddleboarder.

The Balance 1-Piece is available in fixed lengths between 70 inches and 86 inches (in 2 inch increments).
