Surf kayak paddle recommendations

Post by Back Strand » Tue Sep 20, 2016 9:39 pm

Hi there

Big big day on donegal surf.

My trusted werner got snapped just after I imploded the front end of me phantom in what was a washing machine.

Wave threw me into the beach felt like my ankles had snapped. Boat cracked both sides and felt the flex at foot level.

In 30 years of surfing I have never had a paddle snap on me on open water!

Top speck boat out of order till repairs.

Anyway any new paddle recommendations please.

Short shaft around 175-180 cms.

All recommendations considered...

happy paddling

There are quite a selection of great paddles out there. My current favourite is an Adventure Technology Crank Flex Shaft Eddy, but VE get a great write up as well, if you like a bigger Powerhouse type blade then standard VE blade seems to be on the money though I understand Stuart will shape the blade to what ever size you want.

Can recommend VE paddles. Talk to Stu, he is very helpful.
