Flash 85

As parents we want to be mindful of what we spend on beginner gear for our young paddlers. "What if they don't like it?" "They're going to grow out of it." We have addressed these concerns with the Flash 85 kids SUP paddle. Great craftsmanship and materials at an amazing price, and the adjustability to grow with your child from ages 6 to 13. We are doing all we can to help make their time on the water with you as enjoyable as possible with more efficient blade design and size, light swing weight and kid sized shaft. The Flash 85 is the total package and your ticket to more family fun on the water.

  • The simple to use adjustable system extends with 16" of height range, growing with your child from 3'8" to 5' or approximatley 6 to 13 years of age.
  • A proven, simple and precise adjustable length mechanism, we've made great additions like printing height and paddle length righ on shaft, making it easy to choose your childs proper paddle length.
  • A small, 85sq" blade size helps reduce strain and fatigue and keep kids happier and on the water longer.
  • Our longer, rectangular, slender design is easier on the body with a more gentle catch. Higher cadence and less fatigue without sacrificing blade size and power.
  • Advanced designs down to your childs paddle, like dihedra blade design. The ridge down the middle of the power face, allows for smooth and stable forward paddling. A core philosophy for Werner.
  • When shopping our Standard performance, you’ll see Werner's heritage for a better paddling paddle, at introductory prices.
  • Injection molded blades are impact and wear resistant. They have light swing weight for the value, while maintaining the design elements that are direct from our more advanced paddles. Smooth, stable strokes for easier paddling.
  • Our fiberglass shaft gives you light weight and less fatigue, at a more modest price. Standard with the “Tweener” size, it gives a diameter that fits well for all hand sizes.

Standard

For those that take a more casual approach to paddling, we still want you to experience the feel of a Werner Paddle on the water.

Blade Designs
10 Degree blade offset

10 Degree blade to shaft offset is utilized to help the Versatile use paddler excel. For the paddler who does a bit of everything, some touring, surfing, fishing, fitness, the compromise for forward paddling and bracing is 10 degree.

Blade Dihedral-Stand Up Paddle

Dihedral blade shape was created to direct water to flow evenly off each side of the blade creating a smooth and stable stroke.

Fiberglass Reinforced - Injection Molded Nylon

The combination of fiberglass and nylon are impact and wear resistant at a lower price point.

Blade Shape
SUP Blade Shape

The innovators of the Long Slender Rectangular blade shape. Our blade shape is far and away the most gentle on the body with a softer feel and higher cadence without having to sacrifice blade surface area.

Shaft Features
SUP Kids-Family Adjustable

Our Family Adjustable system offers a full 16" of height range. Our Kids fit option expands 16" and grows with your youth paddler from 5 to 13 years old.

SUP Tweener shaft

The "Tweener" size shaft was designed to be the perfect compliment to our Family Adjustable system. With a diameter between our Small Fit and Standard Fit, "Tweener" truly fits a variety of hand sizes.

Wrapped FG - Straight

"Wrapped" refers to the process in how these shafts are made. Different from our upper end shafts, you can feel the comfortable outside layer.
