Mission Kayak Paddles




Your paddle has a big impact on how enjoyable your trip will be. A paddle that is poorly made and doesnt fit you can make for a miserable day on the water, while a well selected paddle is a real delight. Personal preferences definitely figure in to your selection, How does it feel, How fast and how far are you going to paddle?  

When choosing a paddle, it is important to keep these characteristics in mind:

  • What Design do you need? Wide blades provide better acceleration, while long and narrow blades are good for paddling long distances.
  • What size do you need? - this comes down to personal preference - if possible try several different lengths to feel whats most comfortable for you. keep in mind that a longer paddle is necessary for wider kayaks, such as the mission Sit-on-top range.
  • Oval shaped shafts tend to fit the hand better, helping with both comfort and control.
  • What Construction of paddle do you need? Paddles are made from many different materials - lighter is usually better and more expensive. Typically synthetic materials require less maintenance than timber ones. Paddles can be made with a take apart joint that allows the paddles to be broken down for easier storage and transport, and allows the blades to be set feathered or straight.
