Church of the Active Blade


Students of whitewater SUP: pay attention to how little you see Barry’s paddle blade, how his arms rarely flex, how his posture and center of gravity stay over his feet. No low braces here – which allows for more control of the board’s rails as they cross eddylines. Riding stern squirts like the tail is a second, shaftless paddleblade.


If this intrigues you, check out Barry’s amazing and totally geeky treatise on paddling SUPs on moving water: High Performance Whitewater SUP Paddling.
