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 Sea Kayak 140 Paddle:

      These are nice paddles. Unfortunately we invested in cheap kayaks that are wide. I am a beginner, and I feel that I really have to reach to not to hit my arms on the side of the kayak when paddling. I feel if they were longer or my kayak more narrow, I wouldn't have this problem

            I bought it for kayak rentals done by the national canoe/kayak team from Puerto Rico as a fund raiser so they are used frequently and by all types of padddlers. This product can withstand the use and the weather very well. I have bought 40 paddles on the last 3 years and I highly recommend it.

                  Comments about West Marine Sea Kayak 140 Paddle:

                  I have a question about the handle of all 3 kayak paddles that were in my local West Marine store. All 3 have just one side of the paddle with an 18-inch "bump" added to the shaft, farther out toward the paddle than you can reach with your hand on that side. The bump sticks out maybe 1/2-inch and is covered by the black sleeve on that side of the paddle. The store employees didn't know what it was for. The tag on each of the 3 models didn't explain what it is for. What is is for? I always use kayak paddles with them adjusted 90-degrees to allow my left hand to stay fixed to the paddle, whilst letting my right hand "spin" while paddling, then grabbing it tight just before pulling on the right-side. Other people like it adjusted for the other hand. So if the "bump" is there to better fit that hand, it would suggest that West Marine defaults to right-handed paddlers vs. left-handed paddlers. Another idea is that it improves floating the paddle in case it were dropped in the water.

                  Any ideas???

                    Comments about West Marine Sea Kayak 140 Paddle:

                    Overall very good quality, however on my particular paddle the shaft was very tight and difficult to insert and remove at the connection. My husband used a belt sander in his shop to reduce the diameter of the aluminuim insert section (just a small amount) and it now assembles and disassembles with ease. I like the paddle very much!

                      This paddle is just the right balance and weight. I have used it many times on flat and class 2 water. The bright color has saved me many times from leaving it behind in tall grass.
