Danny and Dave are a hard combo to argue against. I've not used one (Ke Nalu loyalist), but the ones I've just played with in the shop sure seem like they're well made, and with some nice performance thought(s) behind them.
Me: 6'1"/200...6'0" Chelu Foil Boards...9'6" Bob Pearson "Laird Noserider"...9'6" Costa Azul Wide Body...14' Lahui Kai "Manta"...8'0" WaveStorm for when proning urges still hit, and 7'3" Chuck Glynn foil board backup.

I'm a KeNalu afficiando Not as HS are not as smooth as KeNalu's  and I've seen some break in the surf but as a back up paddle (if you can get it cheap enough) might be a good option
But there are better backup paddle (100% Carbon) options

Do you use it just for sup surfing?

News flash... all paddles can break in the surf. I've had QB, Ke Nalu & Werner all break. It happens.

But there are better backup paddle (100% Carbon) options

This is such a stupid statement with nothing to back it up. Typical reply.
