Carefuly not to get sand in the tubes, this is our 2nd paddle after the first one became clogged up with sand.
I probably use my paddle longer than needed but I prefer an upright stance due to a bad back. Got a new paddle after loosing the first one in a house move.
I don't have a Big Duck, mind you I wish I did. The SUP I got does not but leak and the paddle ******! I had to order this paddle because the one that came with my board fell to pieces while out riding!
Had to order a new one as my parnter accidentally drove into/over my paddle in the garage. All is well now lol.
