How to Choose a Kayak Paddle

Kayaks paddles, much like kayaks themselves, come in different styles, sizes, and construction types. The type of kayak paddle you choose will be based on several factors, such as your personal paddling style and intended paddling environment, your height, the style and width of your boat, and your budget. 

Kayak paddlers typically fall into one of two (or somewhere between) categories with their paddle stroke: low-angle or high-angle. A kayak paddler with low-angle stroke will have a more relaxed technique, keeping their hands below chest-level and planting their blade at a more horizontal angle, whereas a paddler a with a high-angle stroke will usually have a more aggressive stroke, with their top hand coming up to shoulder-height and the blade entering the water more vertically. A low-angle stroke requires less energy and your pace can be maintained for a longer periods, whilst a high-angle stroke takes more effort, but generates more power and speed.

Your preferred paddling environment will also help you decide whether you need a low-angle or high-angle kayak paddle. Casual lake paddlers, kayak anglers, and long distance kayakers will appreciate the low impact of a low-angle paddle. Paddlers venturing into rough waters, surf, or just enjoy a workout will prefer the performance of a high-angle paddle.

Now that you have an idea of what style of paddle you need, you're probably wondering how to size your paddle. Low-angle paddles will be longer than high-angle paddles, and your height and the width of your kayak will also factor into deciding your ideal length. Some paddles have adjustable length options, so if you have multiple boats, or different-sized people will be using the paddle, an adjustable paddle is for you! As a rough length guide, see the charts below:

    Low-Angle    
Height/Width Under 23" 23" to 28" 28"-32" Over 32"
Under 5' 210cm 220cm 230cm 240cm
5' to 5'6" 215cm 220cm 230cm 240cm
5'6" to 6'+ 220cm 220cm 230cm 240cm+
 
  High-Angle  
Height/Width 25" & Under Over 25"
Under 5'1" 200cm 210cm
5'1" to 5'4" 205cm 215cm
5'4" to 6'+ 210cm 220cm
 

Paddle constructions affect the feel and functionality of the paddle. All of our kayak paddles separate into at least two pieces for easy transport and storage, however, some paddles separate into four pieces, which is ideal for use with an inflatable kayak as you can store the paddle in the bag with the boat when it's packed up, or if you want a compact spare paddle to bring on expeditions. The different materials used for paddle blades and shafts determine its stiffness and performance. On the more budget-friendly end you have nylon blades paired with a fiberglass or carbon shaft, then you move into fiberglass blades with a carbon shaft, and for the best performance and lightest weight you have full carbon paddles.
