When children to paddle a kayak that is sized for them using a paddle that is sized for them - like this one - then magic can happen. They have better control to manoeuvre the kayak and steer it where they want to go, the paddling action is less effort and they start to love paddling and being on the water.
This children's paddle has four qualities that make it ideal for primary-school aged children:
- This paddle with its plastic blade and aluminium shaft weighs only 680g (standard adult paddles are rarely lighter than 1.1kg). This light weight makes a difference to little arms and little muscles.
- Shorter paddle suited to shorter torso and arms for better control.
- Smaller blade size for less resistance.
- Smaller shaft diameter is sized for small hands.
This is a split paddle with two feather angle options (flat or 30 degrees)
