In 2014 Jim Terrell and Dave Kalama devised a paddle that led the way for a new wave of paddle design. The V Drive instantly became a standard amongst some of the world’s top paddlers. It’s unique V shape on the back creates a pocket of driving energy that gives this paddle it’s incredible power in the front part of the stroke. In this new FG/CA configuration, the V Drive comes to the hands of the serious or casual racer, adventure paddler and surfer. The flex of this high quality hybrid configuration is easier on the shoulders and wrists then the stiffer all carbon blades. Plus, you can customize the blade by choosing from one of the many colors available in the new fiberglass configuration!
