To rinse your Cruiser SUP Paddle properly, unlatch the tension lever like you would do to adjust the height of the paddle. Next, remove the handle section from the shaft section completely until your paddle is now in two pieces. Finally, rinse the inside of the shaft along with the handle section very well several times with fresh water. Don’t be afraid to take a hose or shower head and fill the entire shaft up with fresh water and then pour it out several times. Allow the inside of the shaft to dry by hanging the piece from the blade section, with shaft pointing downwards. Also, use a towel to dry the handle piece completely before re-inserting it into the shaft of the blade piece.

Washing away all salt, dirt, sand, or other potential clogging materials from all sections of your paddle is the key to keeping your paddle from rusting or sticking when trying to adjust the height. Please remember to wash out your Cruiser SUP Paddle completely after every single use!
