Oscar Propulsion have embarked on a journey to redefine paddle blades by using a patented cut technology that revolutionises the way you experience the water. Now, they're inviting you to be among the very first to join in this exciting adventure.
For the past 5 years, Oscar Propulsion has been developing a patented technology of putting cuts through the face of paddle and oar blades. The objective being to reduce stress and strain on the body and to provide a more stable action without the loss of power or efficiency. This has now been achieved and recognised when they received approval from the International Canoe Federation and World Rowing.
Oscar Propulsion would now like to offer the first cut SUP paddles for sale. This will create awareness and demand while they talk to paddle manufacturers about how they can licence the patented technology to apply to their product range in the future.
The sale of these first cut paddles will provide the funds to allow Oscar Propulsion to conduct conversations on a global scale, introducing this game changing technology to every paddler.
Paddles will cost £260 each and there will be an initial campaign to sell 1000 cut paddles.
By meticulously placing angled cuts or slits through the face of the blade, we have been able to transform paddle blades that:
The paddler will experience lighter loading on the body for the same power and efficiency, delivering maximum enjoyment and potential. This is a revolutionary advance for paddle sports and will offer greater comfort and enjoyment at all levels.
How The Technology Works And Why
When you pull on a paddle during a stroke, high pressure water is created on the front of the blade and low pressure at the back. This is the force that propels your board across the surface.
But, that high pressure water wants to flow around the blade to fill the low pressure area at the back and it is this action that causes the blade to flutter and be less stable.
The cuts allow some high-pressure water to squeeze through the cuts and in so doing lose energy and become low pressure so compensating for some of the backflow.
By maintaining the High/Low difference and allowing some water through the face of the blade the cuts facilitate a more progressive power curve making the start of the stroke softer and spreading the power more evenly through the stroke.

What Oscar Propulsion Needs & What You Get
Oscar Propulsion would like to sell a total of 1000 of their own branded paddles. The profit will enable us to launch the commercial phase of their business. This includes a big marketing push through PR and paid advertising, introducing global paddle manufacturers, distributers and retailers to their patented innovation.
And Oscar Propulsion would like you to be part of that journey showing your friends and the wider paddling community that you are one of only 1000 people in the world with this game changing paddle!
they manufactured the first 20 paddles in May this year and sent them out to be tested by paddlers in the US and UK with universally great feedback.
Their plan is each time they receive orders and payment for 100 paddles, they will place the order with the manufacturer. Each batch of 100 will take approximately 7 weeks to be shipped to the individual purchasers. A paddle bag and shipping are included in the price.
Should we not receive orders for all our target 1000 paddles by the end of the Campaign, we will complete and ship all orders we have received.
