Ke Nalu Wiki has reinforced edges so the reef does not damage your paddle, not full Carbon but a great surf paddle.

I was a longtime KeNalu fan, they are great quality, and were the creator of "hot glue assembly" which allows for easy parts replacement.

Now, I really do prefer my Sunova Carbon paddle.
I really like the narrower blade and the fact that they also use hot glue assembly

The Black Project paddles do look good don't they. On the expensive side though although good paddles these days are not cheap.
