The Carlisle Taboo Stand Up Paddle lets you paddle your stand up board, but easily converts to a kayak paddle too. This versatile two-in-one paddle includes two T-grip handles which let you adjust the length based on your height. It also features a second blade which allows you to easily convert the stand up paddle into a 230 cm kayak paddle. Stand up or sit down and paddle, the Taboo SUP paddle helps you do both.

I bought this Carlisle Taboo Stand Up Paddle to use in my stand-up fishing kayak. Works great for poling. Its a little on the heavy side for long time paddling. Made solid.
Like others, I got this for my Versa board SUP/SOT. It is an inexpensive solution to buying two dedicated paddles and it works reasonably well. I do wish that the connection was a little more firm, when I have the paddle end installed it wiggles in place a bit. Also FYI, it does not come with drip rings, so you will have to buy them separately if you don't want wet arms while in SOT mode.
I bought the liquid logic versa board and this paddle to go with it. Love the convertible option to go from kayaking to SUP. I am a beginner paddler, but this works great for me.
LOVE IT!! Can meander down the river on my SUP, and then quickly get ready for white water!!
