KIALOA entered the dragon boat paddle market with the unique carbon and wood hybrid dragon boat paddle because they listened to the request of paddlers. The wood shaft not only has an exceptional feel but also has natural shock absorption unique to wood. After hours of weekly paddling the muscle and tendons in your arms and shoulders will feel the difference that this shock absorption provides. We are also proud to say that KIALOA Yin Yang Hybrid Dragon Boat Paddles are manufactured entirely in the USA .
