Kayak Paddles and Canoe Paddles

Select the Type of Canoeing and Kayaking Paddles

Your choice of paddle should be based on the type of kayaking that you are planning to use it for. Choosing the correct paddle is important, for example touring paddles are not strong enough for white water. Kayak paddles have a blade on either end of a shaft, single bladed paddles are called Canoe Paddles.

To help, we have categorised them to enable you choose the right one. View further details by following the links.
