Introducing QB and Hobie Paddle Collaboration from Quickblade Paddles

“You make cool stuff. We make cool stuff. We should make cool stuff together.”

That’s how the collaboration between Hobie SUP and Quickblade began. But what started as Match Sticks, a more aesthetic concept where custom, high-performance Quickblade paddles were created to match the design of custom, high-performance Hobie paddleboards has evolved into a new blade design called the H Drive. They didn’t have a version at the show, but Byron Kurt and Jimmy Terrell tested this design and it’s a shockingly effective. They are all really excited about it. We’re hoping to get a walkthrough with Jimmy Terrell at the pacific paddle games. Allegedly, it’ll be in the 90 size range, perhaps with an additional smaller version.

This is a great video by our buddy Chris Aguilar at Quickblade on the Hobie/QB collaboration.
