The Black Project Ohana is the go-to paddle for intermediate level SUP riders.
The Black Project Ohana is an all-round SUP paddle for those who need a paddle for all occasions and the entire family. A feature packed paddle that offers maximum performance at a very attractive price.
Based on the same design & components as the Black Project Lava, the Ohana has been tailored for recreational paddlers & families looking for enhanced performance in a lightweight & strong construction.
The Ohana features a Scooped Dihedral blade shaping for a stable, smooth and efficient paddle stroke and is also fitted with a regular diameter 60% carbon shaft.
They build the paddle in 12k pre-preg carbon for reduced weight and increased strength. The smooth matte finish shaft and handle are great for grip and the softer flex of the ReflexCarbon60 shaft generates power and reacts quicker than other shafts. Softer shafts are ideal for smaller and lighter paddlers as well as those with prior shoulder injuries. Black Project engineer their shafts to protect your body so that you can paddle for longer and have more fun.
The Ohana SUP paddle is available in adjustable and 3-piece adjustable options. The no-twist adjustment system is simple, light and strong. It delivers a wide 50cm (19.5″) of adjustment from 160-210cm (63″-82.5″) and hence is suitable for paddlers from 4’8″ to 6’2″ (142-188cm). By using a flat section on the inside of the shaft, the weight is kept down, strength maintained, and stiffness controlled more accurately than with heavier grooved systems.
The lightweight and ergonomic 100% carbon handles come with a vivid red matte finish. The T handle is often preferred by paddlers in the surf and those with smaller hands. The flat front gives immediate feedback while surfing. Riders on flat water and those with bigger hands better enjoy the Palm handle. The matte finish is ideal in hot or cold climates.
