Canoe Paddles

Canoes Paddles from Lost Paddle

An enjoyable canoe trip is dependent on having the right canoe paddle. And, fortunately, finding “the one” has never been easier! Here at Lost Paddle Kayak Shop, we have a great selection of paddles to choose from.

Choose the Right Weight

When shopping for your perfect paddle, always keep the weight in mind. If you buy a paddle that is too heavy, you’ll get fatigued more easily, which could cut your canoe trip short. However, you don’t want a paddle that is so lightweight that it’s flimsy. Instead, look for a paddle that’s the right weight for you and that is also strong and flexible at the same time.

Choose the Right Blade

Not every canoe paddle has the same type of blade. Some canoe paddles have thinner blades that are ideal for calmer waters, while others feature broader blades made for rough river water. Plus, there are tons of variations on every type of blade for you to choose from. The key is to decide where you will be doing most of your canoeing and then to choose a complementary blade style.

Choose the Right Shaft

In addition to blade style, you also have to choose the right shaft. A paddle with a straight shaft is typically the best paddle for canoeing on rough water, while a bent shaft is more amenable to leisurely canoeing.
