Internal Metal Connector Pin broke
There is an internal metal sprung pop in button to connect the two halves of the paddle together. I've not used my SUP board more than 15-20 times, when the metal spring fell out, and sheered in half. So I am left with two half paddles and no safe way to connect them. Great! if this was a cheap brand SUP kit, I would have perhaps anticipated some failure, but not on a mid price well regarded brand. Very disappointing, Not sure the extra money was worth it. Until it broke, I was finding the paddle very effective on flat water, river and sea. Now attempting to hold it together with DUCT tape, until I can replace the paddle.
