Have not used it yet (January in NY). Paddle seems very light, the annular ridges around the handles seems like they will work great to prevent slipping when wet.
This paddle is a winner! It is light-weight, yet extremely durable. I found it far superior to the plastic and aluminum paddle I had used in the past.
