Good question as to why SUP paddle blades are canted, usually between 5 and 10 degrees. I don't think I've ever heard a satisfying explanation. Maybe it is for the same reason as for outrigger paddles, but I don't know that explanation either. If anyone would have the scoop, it would be Quickblade Paddles run by Jim Terrell, who was an Olympic canoeist.
