LIMA LTD BLADE

FLAT WATER / RACE

The direct catch and ability to redirect automatically is what makes our world champion race team choose the LIMA LTD. Our champions boast the this paddle’s shape actually is propelling the board faster through the water. The 4 pronounced concaves set the new standard in high-performance paddling.

FLAT WATER

With the LIMA you can paddle harder with less attention, adding a touch of magic to each stroke. The paddle is perfect for beginners to advanced level, a champion of flat water. Try it to believe it!

ROUNDED TIP

EASIER CATCH

The new rounded tip of the blade has a small area hitting the water during the entry. The result is a smooth penetration in the water thus reducing the impact on your body, especially on the shoulders. Reducing the stress on the body allows one to paddle longer and more often with less recovery time.

THE CONCAVE

The concave on the power face is guiding the water throughout the blade controlling the wobbling and increasing the water flow speed. The edge defining the concave starts round-shaped at the tip of the blade to separate the water smoothly. It then becomes sharper to dictate the water its path and stabilize the blade. All your power is transferred in a straight forward motion as you don’t need to worry about paddle alignment in the water anymore.

BLADE ANGLE

UNIQUE PROFILE

The lima has a unique narrow and flat profile allowing you to pull the blade very close to the rail of the board, giving it a really nice line. Combine to a 10° angle, the power phase is very efficient making all your energy going in a straight forward motion.

THE TRASH PICKER

COMES WITH EVERY PADDLE Use the trash picker as a helpful tool to pick up plastic and other trash while paddling. It’s made from recycled plastic and comes with every paddle. Store the trash in a bag or pocket it until you reach shore.
