Description

Bending Branches Impression Wood Paddle - The Impression kayak paddle from Bending Branches is the ideal companion for recreational day trips. The natural flex and softness of wood is easy on the body and hands. Smoothly profiled front and back faces enter and exit the water quietly. The wider blades are suitable for all types of paddling, and ideal for wider boats, adding a little more power in your strokes. The composite ferrule won't corrode or seize up and can be adjusted to suit your preferences. Enjoy the comfort and warm, soft feel of a wood kayak paddle with the Bending Branches Impression kayak paddle.

Rockguard Tip Protection - The tip of every Bending Branches paddle is protected with exclusive Rockgard technology. This proprietary technology - derived from the same material as inline skate wheels - maintains the integrity of the paddle, seals against moisture and protects the most vulnerable areas - the tips and edges. This unmatched shock absorption helps these wood paddles last up to six times longer than those without protection. When you hold Rockguard technology in your hands, you can feel confident that your paddle will give you what you need, when you need it....and come back for more.

Sizing for Bending Branches Impression Wood Paddle: When determining paddle length, the kayak width is the limiting factor for recreational kayaking. The sizing chart below should ensure you aren't hitting your knuckles on the hull as you paddle. For sleeker touring/sea kayaks ones paddling style and physical size plays more heavily.

Kayak WidthUnder 23"24" to 28"29"-33"
Paddler HeightRecommended Paddle Length
Under 5'5"210-220 cm220-230 cm230-240 cm
5'5" - 5'11"220 cm230 cm230-240 cm
6'+220-230 cm230-240 cm240 cm

In a sit-on-top kayak, if the seat is raised 6 inches or higher above the base, add 10cm in length.

An easy way to measure in the field is to hold a paddle horizontally in your hands with your elbows slightly inside a 90 degree angle (most paddles are ovalized in the area they should be gripped). Your hands should be about two-thirds of the way between the center of the shaft and the shoulder of the blade. Again, always take stroke angle and boat width into consideration.
