Frequently Asked Questions

What size of canoe paddle do I need?

To determine the appropriate paddle length, follow these steps while on the water: Sit inside the canoe and measure the vertical distance between your nose and the waterline. This distance should be the same as the distance between the throat and the grip of the paddle, where the blade meets the shaft of the paddle.

Different Paddle Blade Options:

Along with these variations, you get to choose between different types of canoe paddle blades, too. For those who are taking the boat out for a day cruising on the lake, you’ll probably want to consider a long, skinny canoe paddle blade.

On the other hand, a short, wide canoe paddle blade is better suited for rushing rivers and shallow water.

Straight Shafts vs Bent Shafts:

We even have all kinds of variety in terms of the shaft, too. Most canoeists prefer a straight shaft for their paddle, which handles all-around paddling and excels on rivers. These straight shaft paddles are perfect for whitewater canoeing because they offer unprecedented maneuverability and bracing strokes.

But we also offer bent shaft paddles that are great for flatwater paddling because they enable more efficient power strokes. This is because the canoe paddle blade stays vertical in the water for longer. These bent shafts also offer better efficiency in terms of the energy you expend.
