Now that you have your new kayak, canoe, or boat picked out for your next water adventure you need something to propel you! It's on to the really important piece of equipment choosing the right paddle, which will have the greatest impact on your kayaking or boating adventures. A paddle is the all around the most important piece of kayak gear on your boat besides the life jacket or vest. When considering a paddle one must remember that a paddle is in your hands the whole adventure down the river, swinging it from side to side with every stroke the entire time on the water. So a paddle that fits you and your paddling style will greatly increase your enjoyment on the water, plus reduce fatigue and chances of injury to yourself. Next to the kayak, itself, your paddle will determine your performance in the water. Even a short tour can involves thousands of paddle strokes, so the proper paddle can make all the difference from a good day to a bad day on the water. The Caney Fork Outdoors online store has a wide selection of kayak, canoe, or boat paddles in brands like Bending Branches and Aqua Bound for sale. So you can enjoy your time on the water with quality kayak gear.

Figuring out the right size (length) of kayak paddle is straightforward. The wider the boat, the longer the paddle needs to be. Your height is also a factor, especially for a narrower boat. Taller paddlers need longer paddles. The kayak paddle size is according to two factors Low Angle and High Angle. The paddles are sized in centimeters even though the boats/kayaks are measured in inches.

A few questions to for choosing the right fit kayak paddle. What style of kayaking will you be doing recreational, fishing, touring, or whitewater? What is your paddling style you will be using? Narrower blades are lighter and comfortable for long stretches of paddling, that's especially helpful on a day of touring or multi-day adventures. The wider blades lend themselves to quick powerful strokes that let you accelerate quickly and move faster. Some anglers often prefer them. The specialized fishing blades also includes a J-shaped notch in the blade to retrieve snared hooks or lures. What is your height, and the width of your kayak? This the basic information in order to choose the right fit paddle for you. Can't wait to get out on the water, then you must get a paddle, not just any paddle and it must be the right fit just for you.
