Choosing the right Paddleboarding Paddle | Fixed length vs Adjustable

Choosing the right Paddleboarding Paddle | Fixed length vs Adjustable

It would cost a fortune to have a variety of paddles to fit every size of paddler. So at the family cottage, in rentals shops or SUP schools you'll probably want an adjustable. After all, with an adjustable paddle, one size fits (almost) all. One piece fixed length paddles have no moving parts so they transfer power more efficiently. That's why racers and 'serious' distance paddlers always use a one-piece paddle. No moving parts can also mean that your 'fixed length' SUP-paddle will last longer than an adjustable.

Beach Toyz reviews Water Mats | Floating Mats | Lily Pads

Floating Mats, sometimes called Water Mats, have been the most sought-after Beach, Cottage and Pool toy for years. You can use them to lounge, as an exercise or play surface for the kids, or as a floating dock. They're great because unlike inflatables, they can't sink, even if they're punctured. While there are some differences between brands, each of these products work on the same principle. They use a marine grade polyethylene 'closed-cell' foam that is durable, has high buoyancy, and won't absorb water.

We compare the Aqua Lily Pad, Floater Mat, and Runway - floating water mats.
