To hold a paddle board paddle correctly:

  1. Grip the T-handle: Place one hand on the top T-handle of the paddle.
  2. Position the Other Hand: Place your other hand about shoulder-width down the shaft.
  3. Blade Angle: Ensure the blade's angle is facing away from you.
  4. Proper Posture: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart on the board, knees slightly bent.
  5. Paddling Motion: Use a forward stroke, engaging your core muscles for better control and efficiency.

Adjust your hand position for comfort and effectiveness as you paddle.
