When choosing a paddle keep these important characteristics in mind.
DESIGN
  • Wide blades provide better acceleration, long and narrow blades are good for paddling long distances.
  • "Feathered" paddles are easier to use when paddling into the wind since the blade that’s out of the water is horizontal and offers no wind resistance.
  • Oval shaped shafts tend to better fit the hand, helping with both comfort and control.

CONSTRUCTION
  • Paddles are made from many different materials – lighter is usually better (and more expensive).
  • Paddles made from synthetic materials require less maintenance than timber ones.
  • Paddles can be made with a take-apart joint that allows the paddle to be broken down for easier storage and transport, and allows the blades to be set feathered or straight.
SIZE

Paddle length is really a matter of personal preference. Go with what feels best. Keep in mind that a longer paddle tends to be necessary if your kayak is wide or if you’re more comfortable with a slower paddling stroke. Before buying, try several different lengths to find what feels most comfortable. Click here to see a chart that makes a good starting point.
