Our most aggressive shape, providing instant power which lasts along the length of the stroke. With most of its surface area focussed near the tip of the blade. It's the ideal model for freestyle or surf paddling.

Light, strong, buoyant and incredibly powerful!

These blades are manufactured at a very high pressure to produce an extremely solid hard-wearing edge.

This blade is made from 100% carbon fibre which is pre-impregnated with toughened epoxy resin making it strong, robust and hard-wearing.

Supplied as standard with our carbon crank shaft. Its ergonomic moulded grip is angled for neutral wrist alignment and neutral blade offset for low torque. This reduces grip stress and gives you unmatched blade awareness.

Every set of VE Paddles is made in Britain, by hand, at our factory in Clevedon. We take care at each step so you can rely on VE as your connection to the water. VE paddles are made using pre-preg carbon and fibreglass materials and compression moulded construction techniques. Blades are fitted onto proprietary carbon or glass shafts; in straight, crank and split versions. All VE Paddles are assembled to a strict process, to ensure a quality finished product. VE Paddles come in a wide range of configurations. We offer popular models in standard lengths, angles and shaft types, plus the chance to customise for your style. The product descriptions and paddle length charts will help guide your choice, but if you want advice on what will work best for you, please get in contact with us. We aim to deliver within 30 working days of receiving your order, although custom orders may take a little longer. If you have a broken or damaged paddle, we can often repair or replace it to get you back on the water. VE paddles come with a 24-month warranty against manufacturing defects.
