• Physiology
    Specifically designed for young, developing athletes.  The mechanics of the paddles are specifically designed to fit children’s physiology. Children’s paddles and shafts are a 60% carbon blend so you get more flex in the blade and shaft which protects young joints.  It enables absorption of impact from each paddle stroke, therefore reducing shock on the shoulders, elbows and wrists, ultimately decreasing common paddling injuries.
  • Design and Quality
    Braca youth-sized paddles are a scaled-down version of the original adult designs. You get an amazing Braca paddle design in a configuration for young paddlers.  In some configurations the shafts are a slightly smaller diameter than the standard shafts.  Braca-sport represents quality and the youth paddles carry on the high-quality tradition.
  • Room to Grow
    We can swap out blades and shafts as athletes grow or should damage occur to a paddle.  The youth paddles may also use a high-quality plastic connector system to ease maintenance requirements (metal connectors need to be rinsed after use). Braca paddles are unique in their flexibility for re-configuration due to Braca-sport’s product design.  FastPaddler offers customer service to ensure that young paddlers will always have their ideal paddle.

The Braca Junior is an extreme tear-drop design based on the Braca VI, VII.  This design facilitates a very powerful catch and maximizes the working blade area when it is only partially submerged in the water, especially at the beginning and the end of a stroke. Due to the special shape, it tends to feel larger than a comparable tear-drop paddle.
