The Lava 3-Piece 90% Carbon all-water SUP paddle is the spiritual successor to their Black Project EPIC. Taking everything that was good about the EPIC and adding some nice features makes the Lava a premium paddle. It is a lightweight paddle built for all conditions from flat waters to surfing.
Black project focuses on performance and weight with all of their paddles. They have one of the lightest paddles on the market at 585 grams (half the weight of our Aluminum Paddle). In the performance category, the Lava blade was designed to correct poor technique, fatigue and injury. They achieve this with their proprietary Scooped Dihedral blade shape which holds water securely through the power phase of the stroke. The goal with both of these advancements is to reduce wear and tear on your body so that you can enjoy more time on the water.
New for the Black Project paddles is an anti-twist handle. Just like their Hex joint, the handle fits snugly into the shaft with zero twist. Zero twist means easy adjustment while on the water.
The Lava comes with a travel bag. The paddle breaks down to a max length of 32 inches. This is also ideal if you wish to put the Lava in your Red Paddle board bag.
For paddler size, we recommend anyone that is 5'9 is about the cut off point for paddler height. Taller would find the Large more comfortable and shorter would find the Medium more comfortable.
