Braca Hurricane

TRADITIONAL MODEL

  • Brača Hurricane paddle
 

Brača Hurricane is the latest paddle in the Brača touring line. It is based on the Typhoon with the following modifications: slightly reduced blade surface area and offset spine height to provide more efficient catch, tracking and exit.

Its exceptional strength fully withstands intense conditions and performs flawlessly in the open ocean, rivers and lakes.This is a perfect paddle for touring and long races for the paddlers who prefer a traditional shape over a wing blade.

All traditional sea kayak paddles have specially reinforced edges.Reinforced Edges

You can also choose the stiffness of the shaft. We recommend a stiffer shaft for bigger blades but any combination is possible. See the shaft stiffness measurement prodecure and parameter table below.

Shaft Stiffness Measurement

All Brača Hurricane paddles are available with an Adjustable Shaft System. This allows elegant adjustment of overall paddle length (within 5cm range) and blade angle from 0° to 80° right or left in 5° increments. The system also allows you to disassemble the paddle into two parts for easy transportation.  IMPORTANT!
Always clean your adjustable shaft regularly!
Store your adjustable paddle disassembled if
not used for more than two weeks!
See the maintenance page for details.
