Starboard Lima Prepreg Carbon fixed length paddle with very direct catch and ability to redirect automatically is what makes Starboard world champion race team choose the Lima. Their champions boast that the Lima propels the board faster through the water. The new standard in high-performance paddling. The concave on the power face is guiding the water throughout the blade controlling the wobbling and increasing the water flow speed. The edge defining the concave starts round-shaped at the tip of the blade to separate the water smoothly. It then becomes sharper to dictate the water its path and stabilize the blade. All your power is transferred in a straight forward motion as you don’t need to worry about paddle alignment in the water anymore. The lima has a unique narrow and flat profile allowing you to pull the blade very close to the rail of the board, giving it a really nice line. Combine to a 10° angle, the power phase is very efficient making all your energy going in a straight forward motion. The new Super Handle changes the way we paddle. The flat top and wide grip create new powerful leverage of the whole paddle and the blade One can steer the paddle on slight angles and remain with full power. Especially good for side winds and keeping the board on the course you may set.
