Some you may have noticed a new link on the sidebar to Aqua-Bound. I’m happy to announce I was lucky enough to be selected to their Pro Staff this year. This was really a no-brainer for me because if you watch the videos I post up, you’ll notice the Sting Ray Hybrid hanging off the paddle clip belt. I’ve had that paddle for 2 years now and I absolutely love it. It handles every situation I put it in, whether that be just paddling, paddle poling my way along sand flats, or shoving my way through low tide mud flats. It’s light, strong and just feels good in the hands. I can’t wait to try out some of the other paddles they offer, especially that Surge Carbon. A 25.5 oz paddle sounds too good to be true. If you’re looking for a new paddle definitely look into an Aqua-Bound. Check out their dealer locator on their website to find them near you.
