Braca SUP Maui


The New Braca SUP Maui Paddle

Braca-sport has a worldwide reputation for designing and building carbon racing paddles. The new Braca Stand Up Maui paddle is designed to allow you maximum energy transfer in a light, powerful paddle.  The Maui is built for a firm catch and smooth midstroke with clean exit.  The specially shaped spine minimizes flutter of the blade throughout the stroke.  Find out why so many Rio Olympic athletes love Braca!  Three carbon handles are available along with a choice of fixed length or adjustable (15cm range) shaft. As an extra feature, all components are hot-glued and replaceable.

If used in salt water conditions, the adjuster, shaft, and paddle should be thoroughly rinsed in fresh water after use.

All Braca Stand Up Maui paddles are available with an Adjustable Shaft System. This allows elegant adjustment of overall paddle length (within 15cm range). The system also allows you to disassemble the paddle into two parts for easy transportation.

Shaft Stiffness

Paddles and Shaft Stiffness

For most Braca paddles you can also choose the stiffness of the shaft. The tables show shaft stiffness recommendations according to blade size. We recommend a stiffer shaft for bigger blades but any combination is possible. If you are stronger than average you may need a stiffer shaft. We recommend stiffer shafts for short, sprint distances and softer shafts for longer, marathon distances.

Canoe paddles have 21 different shaft models with stiffness between 1.2 (stiff) and 4.8 (soft). Kayak paddles can be ordered with 24 types of shafts with a 1.8 (stiff) and 4.9 (soft) stiffness range.

See the shaft stiffness measurement procedure and parameter table below. Shaft stiffness is a deflection measurement. The stiffness # is the deflection in mm using a 10kg weight. A higher stiffness number means a softer shaft.

Follow these instructions to keep your carbon paddles and adjusters in working order.  These instructions are especially important to prevent adjusters from becoming damaged or frozen in a locked position.
  • If used in salt water conditions, the adjuster, shaft, and paddle should be thoroughly rinsed in fresh water immediately after use.
  • If used in fresh water conditions, the paddle and adjuster should be thoroughly rinsed and cleaned every two weeks.
  • Store your adjustable paddle disassembled if not used for more than two weeks!
