Depending on the conditions at hand, you may need to compensate your paddle length in order to optimize your stroke. Say you’re in a practice boat that is ¾ full. The boat does not sink as much and if you normally use a 48”, you may want to go to a 49” to get a full catch. Failing to adapt can hinder your performance and the boat’s overall performance out on the water, but imagine if you could easily adapt to your conditions?
Our answer to this dilemma is through our adjustable handle, which gives you the capability to adjust your paddle’s length +/- 1”.
Some common situations are:
- Where you sit in the boat
- Fresh water versus salt water
- Boat weight
- Stroke style
- Type of Boat
- Practice ½ boat or Race day full boat.
- Wind and tide conditions
These factors individually or in combination will require a paddle length that is +/-1” of your normal paddle size.
Our adjustable handle features:
- Three different grip types (Classic T, Ergo, and Micro)
- Only 40 grams of weight added on to the paddle, which makes it one of the lightest adjustable handles around
- A single screw mechanism, while simple, it still maintains one of the strongest holds on the market
- Easy maintenance, for our salt water paddlers out there
- An external wrench for accessibility and helps keep the overall weight down

Often the carbon fiber paddle you buy is the investment you make for dragon boating. As an investment, the paddle you want to buy is one that would be great in the long run. This brings up the burning question. Why Burnwater? Below is everything you will need to be convinced that yes, Burnwater is the right investment.
Best in the Competition
Our paddles set the new standard of excellence in dragon boating. Designed using our family of three proprietary technologies, our paddles are easily the lightest, strongest, and most responsive paddles on the market… because of the following:
Central to the design of the blade is our HALO Core Technology. Core is everything and HALO stands for High Strength/Low Density. What this boils down to is a compressive strength 3-4 times greater than traditional “spongey” foam cores with the equivalent weight. This does two things. First, it provides a stiffer and more responsive blade. Secondly, a very hard/durable undentable core that not only helps reduce dings and dents without weighing the paddle down.
The precise smooth rounded carbon edges help maintain “pressure” laminar flow between the water and the blade resulting in what we feel is one of the best catches. Our beveled tips provide a clean and splashless entry. All edges are reinforced with extra carbon for a lifetime of durability.
Full Carbon Build
The use of aerospace carbon fiber ensures the strongest and highest quality fibers used in the construction of the paddle. We can precisely control where and how much the paddles are reinforced so that each paddle is crafted exactly to our specifications. We build our paddles using our Seamless One Piece™ Technology in order to avoid any extra heavy reinforcements and more importantly, provide a smoother transfer of power from the paddler to the water.

More than often, the risk of having a carbon fiber paddle lies in how susceptible it is to have the blade smashed into by another paddle while on the waters. In regards to that, we at Burnwater are providing a fix to paddles with holes.
Our repair kit is a quick and simple fix to the holes. It comes with a putty that is specially formulated to repair carbon fiber and fiberglass. The amount of putty provided is more than enough to patch up one area of damage. The procedure is as simple as mixing the putty then applying it over the damage.
