There are many reasons why the blade on a stand up paddle is angled. The main reason is with the blade angled forward from the shaft the front part of the stroke is more-effective thus making the stroke longer.
The longer the stroke the more efficient the stroke is. Another reason is that it prevents lifting water at stroke’s end which expends less energy making it easier to go through the water. Bent Shaft paddles deliver more of your effort to the water. You’ll go farther, faster, and with less effort. A straight-shaft paddle wastes effort lifting water at the end of the stroke; an angled paddle does not. From, paddle surf warehouse... Thanks guys

My mid stroke. It provides thrust allowing blade to load up water resistance for a longer paddle stroke in the water propelling me forward.

To; Dwight(DW) from 'ncpaddlesurfer' and Jamie from 'watermanhiltonhead' ...Here is Dave's explanation of the C 4's 9'-3 SUB VECTOR model you guys are craving. To all that want this model, here you go. I can remember the model Dave shaped called 'The Stub Vector' Reading all about it in the early 90's.. Not only is Dave a great shaper but he writes great stories as well. I loved reading his articles in the Surf mags. Several articles do stand out too. Thanks Dave for fueling my surfing stoke for the last 15-20 years. Enjoy... Glen
