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.

SPRAY SKIRTS & COCKPIT COVERS

A well designed sprayskirt is necessary for any rough water kayaking, and is a good idea under many conditions.

Coated and breathable nylon sprayskirts adjust to fit different waist sizes and aren’t damaged by chlorine during "pool sessions." Neoprene sprayskirts keep more water out of the cockpit, and are specifically designed and sized to fit different waist sizes and cockpits. Regardless of the type of sprayskirt you use, you want it to fit to your body and kayak snugly, but not so tight that it’s difficult to exit the kayak. Remember, the grabloop must be accessable at all times.
