Kialoa Methane

by: Kilaloa

The Methane is a popular paddle for surf, but is also great for touring and racing. Inspired by surfboard shaper Blane "Methane" Chambers, the 8" wide blade is perfect for quick starts and turns necessary for maneuvering an SUP board in the surf. The comfortable oval shaft and and light full carbon construction make the Methane perform as an excellent race paddle as well. If paddling calm waters for fitness or fun is your thing you'll find the Methane a paddle you can use all day! Made in the USA.

How to SIZE YOUR SUP Paddle

As a general guide for sizing your surf paddle add 8 inches to your overall height to determine the paddle length. Our chart is based on 8 inches. However, depending on the type of paddling you intend to do, it may vary. The reason we give a range is because of the differences in technique, boards and water conditions.  While our data is anecdotal, it is based on the trends we see with our customers and team riders. 


  1. Surfing: 6-8"
  2. Flatwater: 8-10"
  3. Racing: 10-12"
