Our steering paddle, designed by Conan Herbert, draws inspiration from the Toroa, a long-standing favorite among New Zealand steerspeople. With Conan's extensive experience in steering both domestically and internationally, he refined the Uru to address limitations seen in the Toroa, particularly in handling moderate sea conditions and sprint race turns. The Uru's increased blade surface area ensures optimal performance in all conditions.
