Blade Sizes

The following chart is based on European recommendations. European paddlers are often bigger in stature and more sprint oriented.

In Australia we recommend the following variances:

  • Small to Medium blades for Ocean paddling
  • Flexi-Soft or Soft Shafts for paddlers doing long distances- Ocean and marathon paddling
  • Soft to Stiff Shafts for sprint paddlers – Soft for sprint training and stiff for sprint racing
