  • We have shown you the best of the boards

  • Now let us help you get the best out of your board

    technique coaching and best of all It's

  • We can also advise you on blade design,
    blade size and paddle length

"The most important item in your SUP equipment; The Paddle..! After all, this is a paddle sport and the paddle is so often overlooked as an afterthought. The paddle is what drives you through the water, the engine, your direct connection to convert your effort into performance. It would not be irrational to advise you to choose and buy a very good paddle fitted to you, and then see what you have left in the coffers to buy your board. Like a lot of SUP suppliers, at Blue Chip we offer a free standard paddle with most new boards just to help you get into the sport, but we advise you to upgrade your paddle to the correct model fitted to your paddling style as soon as you can afford to do so. A good paddle fitted to match your paddling style and action should not be underestimated and won’t cost the earth. We can supply a high performance paddle fitted to your style of paddling weighing in at under 630gms for just £128. The paddle and your paddle action are more important to your performance than the board."
