A bent shaft paddle is an excellent choice for paddling since it increases the efficiency of the stroke. The Pink Paddle is not only light, comfortable, and durable but is also a beautiful piece of art. Some people may choose to just display their Pink Paddle on the wall but rest assured, this paddle is made to be used. In order to get the most out of your paddle you will want to have the proper size. A person's height is important when choosing a paddle size but more important is the length of one's torso.
How to measure for a bent shaft paddle:
Sit up straight in a chair
Use a tape measure to determine the distance from the surface of the chair between your legs to your nose
When you have this distance in inches then you can choose the proper length of paddle
Special size paddles may be ordered, please call or email for prices.
