The Aqua-Bound Freedom SUP paddle is a great intermediate touring paddle. This is our most popular Aqua-Bound stand-up paddle, and for good reason.
Its blade is made of Aqua-Bound’s strong epX engineered polymer – no whimpy, whippy blade here. With an aggressive dihedral down its spine, the blade makes for a forgiving and smooth pull through the water. There are two blade size options with the Freedom: the original Freedom at 100 sq. in. for paddlers who want a bigger bite, and the new Freedom 85 with a smaller 85 sq. in. blade for smaller paddlers or those who prefer high-cadence paddling for faster speed.
The Freedom has a 100% carbon shaft with a 10° bend. This lightweight material provides great strength, a low swing weight, and a slight shaft flex for a very comfortable performance.
Both Freedom models come in adjustable length 2-piece and 4-piece options. If you have an inflatable board, the 4-piece paddle is your perfectly portable solution.
