Choosing Your Epic Paddle - The Fine Print

 

The fundamental difference in the paddles is the shaft construction first, blade size next and length of paddle:

 

Burgundy Shaft = most popular shaft, suited to flat water recreational paddling, open ocean distance paddling. FLEX = Medium (easy on the elbows and shoulders over distance).

 

Green Shaft = strongest shaft but with more flex than the burgundy, designed for impact-style paddling for Surf Club racing i.e in and out around the cans and in breaking waves coming in and out of the shore break.

 

Blue Shaft = stiffest shaft, suited ONLY for flat water sprint racing i.e K-1 and K-2 ICF racing. NOT suitable for distance paddling as it is too stiff and leads to joint and shoulder strain and/or injury.

 

So, unless you are a surf club racer, we suggest a Burgundy shaft.

 

Blade size = Small Mid for paddlers under 5'10" and most women paddlers, Mid Wing for anyone 5' 11" and above.

 

Shaft Length = 205-215 under 5'10" 210-220 for paddlers over 5' 11" As a guide most male paddlers 6' and over have their paddles set to around 211 or 212 in length.

The kids are certainly growing up and getting better at paddling! It's almost impossible now for me to keep up to Dylan on the Jester while paddling a sit on top kayak, something he's quite happy about! ;)
