RECOMMENDED SIZES

Selecting the correct FoilX paddle size is important (email us any questions or send us. a chat message) and depends on various factors - like experience, board size, weight, height and conditions.

Choosing a larger blade is recommended for flat water conditions (great for PUPS), while windy conditions and small foils may require a smaller blade for faster paddling. For surfing, a smaller blade can also be effective. Less experienced paddlers should opt for a larger blade, while more experienced ones can handle a smaller blade with ease. Keep in mind that our blades are specifically designed for foiling and have been upsized accordingly. To make it easy use the table below as a guide and select your blade size based on weight. We are here to help, so reach out if unsure.

Shaft Flex / Stiffness Recommendations

Finding the right shaft for your paddle length and weight is important. The flex number plays a key role, with lower numbers indicating a stiffer paddle. Taller and heavier paddlers require a stiffer shaft, while smaller and lighter paddlers benefit from more flex. Keep in mind your paddle height and weight when selecting the length and stiffness of your shaft. It's important to find the perfect balance, as the best shaft is not always the stiffest one.

Features / Highlights

A SHAFT DESIGN FOR COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE

The Tour Carbon shaft is a critical element of the FoilX SUP Foiling Paddle, offering a range of benefits including reduced weight, increased power, improved responsiveness and grip, and enhanced comfort. The shaft's tapered oval shape provides added stiffness in the lower section for better stability and power transfer, while the thinner round upper section helps reduce fatigue. The carbon-textured matte finish in the middle grip area allows for a secure and directional feel. Crafted with 30T carbon, our Tour Carbon shafts are available in various stiffness options to cater to your specific paddling needs.

WHAT'S UNIQUE ABOUT THE HANDLE

Black Project's award-winning hollow carbon PowerGrip handle maximizes every bit of effort and translates into better forward motion and the ergonomic design makes this one comfy paddle long paddling sessions. 

A PADDLE THAT LASTS & IS COMPENTIZED 

Black Project's experience of over seven years working with foiling athletes in Hawaii has led to the development of our componentized paddle system, which allows for easy swapping or replacement of parts as needed. This innovative system not only offers customisation options but also promotes sustainability.
