Hybrid Uru (Steering Paddle)
Our latest design is Uru, a steering paddle by Conan Herbert.
In designing Uru, he took many aspects from the Toroa, which has been the steering paddle of choice for most steerspeople in NZ for many years.
The Toroa was/is a great all condition paddle for racing in NZ, though we always felt as it was slightly small to handle moderate sea conditions and sprint race turns.
We have an extra option for the shaft to be reinforced with a carbon fibre sleeve, this needs to be selected as a separate product in the paddles section ($50 extra)
Available in Green,Blue or Purple. Please advise which colour you would like in the 'special instructions' section of the check out process. We will be in touch if there are any issues.
