Kayak Paddles

This great ultra-light paddle is easy on our neck and shoulders.

You will probably not find a better paddle for the price. Lightweight paddles can be expensive, and though we’ve tried several of them, few have enough advantage over this trusty piece of equipment to change our minds and lay out hundreds of dollars for an upgrade.

So, this paddle is inexpensive, easy on the shoulders, and durable. We bought these paddles five years ago, and though we’ve used them hundreds of times, they still look good and perform well.

Plus, they are easy to pack. Each paddle comes apart in 4 sections making storage a breeze. We stow them in our “kayak gear box” along with the carts, inflatable floors, life-belts, seats, gloves and dry bags.

Here is a complete review of our kayaks and these paddles.
