Wooden paddles are the best! They are nicer to paddle with and also warmer in your hands than plastic and metal paddles. This paddle is a solid laminated wooden paddle made from European sustainable Aspen timber sources. The paddle blade measures 54cm long and 16cm wide and has a reinforced blade tip. It is treated using a unique varnish mix to ensure your paddle lasts a lifetime as well. The over all weight of the paddle is 770g and the blade area measures 716 square centimetres.

This is a great all round wooden paddle designed to suit general purpose use and it is built to last. A great choice of paddle

If you need to work out paddle sizes, as always there’s more than one way skin an egg. The simplest way is to measure from the middle of your ‘Chipple’ region to the floor. (Chin to Nipples is your Chipple region) and if you have a paddle of about this size you should be fine!

The somewhat more refined way of measuring for your paddle is as follows.

Kneel down on one knee ensuring both knees are at 90 degrees, just like in the picture,

although you don’t have to have a dog, but they can help. Hold a pole/brush vertically with your hand, again like in the picture with your arm roughly horizontal. Then measure form the top edge of your closed hand to the floor. Take this measurement and then select the paddle with the shaft length that is closest to your measurement. This then gives you the Paddle Length you need for that particular design of paddle.

 

As always if you have any questions, drop us a mail or give us a call.
