Choosing paddle length
When considering paddle length, a good rule to follow is to choose a paddle that's 30cm or roughly a foot taller than you when holding it upright. Also, make sure to take into account the width of your kayak in addition to your height. The greater the kayak width, the more paddle length is needed to reach the water. If you have a sit-on-top kayak and your seat is raised six or more inches above the base, add about three inches to your paddle length.

    Comments about West Marine Aluminum Pro Kayak Paddle, 230cm:

    I bought this paddle on Friday at West Marine in Newport. In the water first thing Satuday morning. As soon as I put it to the water I could tell it was different than other paddles I have used. After all, a paddle is just a paddle, right? Not in this case. This Pro paddle is well balanced and has a nice feel for hand placement. It goes in and out of the water really smoothly. In fact, if you use gloves (I don't) you may not have to with the feel of the Pro shaft. Finished up the paddle today into the wind and didn't kill myself to stay on a nice pace home.

      Worked for us wonderfully. They also come apart to use as an oar in the mangrove trails in Boot Key Harbor

        Every time I have been in the store on Rosecrans I have been helped above and beyond the call of service. I called ahead one day and was able to have a new anchor and line all assembled and ready waiting at the desk. I so appreciate the service. Especially the fellow in the rigging shop ....who got the compressor out for me in the middle of their remodel....when I was desperate to have a buoy inflated for an event.

                I've owned several paddles in the past and find this one to be a really good mix of quality and cost. The lowest end models can fall short and the higher end ones don't pay off for a casual user. This one is a good rounded option and worth every penny.
