BUYING GUIDE FOR KAYAK PADDLES
When choosing kayak paddles you have to take into consideration three things: length, blade design and materials.
The right length of a kayak paddle is determined by the width of the kayak and the height of the kayaker. Using a kayak that isn't long enough makes it more difficult to get the blade into the water and apply force to get efficient forward thrust.
The most common paddle blade design for kayaks is the asymmetrical dihedral shape. An asymmetrical paddle has one side that is both narrower and shorter which makes it lighter and easier to handle for touring and long distance trips.
A dihedral blade has a profile that isn't completely flat. It is thicker at the centre where the shaft is, and thins out towards the outer edges of the blade. The angle makes water flow smoother across the face of the blade and reduces flutter.
The materials used for the shaft and blade determine the paddle's strength and weight. Shafts can be made of aluminium, fiberglass or carbon fibre. Blades are available in plastic, nylon, fibreglass or carbon fibre.
Here at Anaconda, you can find high performance kayak paddles with carbon fibre blades and shafts. For a more affordable yet still lightweight paddle, we also offer kayak paddles with fibreglass shafts and nylon blades. For recreational kayakers on a tight budget, we also offer paddles with aluminium shafts and plastic blades. Despite its low price kayak paddles with aluminium shafts are very durable and easy to service.
