- How to choose
ZJ's kayak paddle is designed for surfski competition.
Our kayak paddle's wing blade is made by hand lay-up with full carbon material, which is truly super light and gives fantastic weight and ideal stiffness for professional race use. The asymmetrical shape and groove design help enhance the water hold capacity, which can achieve excellent energy transfer in every stroke.
The round shaft is made of 100% Toray carbon fiber filament by dry winding, which is designed according to the paddle's force condition to give full play to the strength of the carbon fiber. We have 3 stiffness options (Stiff/Medium/Hybrid) to meet different paddlers' requirements. Free waterproof paddle bag (length 128 cm) for each paddle, easy to store, carry and trip with.

1. Carbon Round Shaft works with Aluminum Ferrule (10 cm extend), which is much stronger and durable than normal plastic adjuster.
2. The shaft adopts dry winding, which is designed according to the force condition of the product to give full play to the strength of the carbon fiber.
3. All our carbon wing blades are 100% carbon fiber, made by hand lay-up molding.
4. The paddle blade¡¯s edge is reinforced with carbon fiber filament, which is more resistant to collisions. And it will not swell under the sun.
5. The asymmetrical shape and groove design can enhance the water retention capacity.
6. Lightweight, the paddle weight is roughly only 650g, depends on the length.
7. The ferrule allows you to make the blades feathered or unfeathered. Feathered blades are blades that are not parallel to each other, but rather at an angle (generally 30° or 45°). This makes the blades more efficient as they cut through the wind, but it also makes them trickier for beginners. A good thing to know is that feathered blades are not recommended if you have joint problems or pain in your wrists, because it puts extra strain on your control hand.
8. A spoon blade has more power but is trickier for beginners, because it will flutter if your technique is not perfect. If you are a beginner, the only reason to choose a spoon blade would be because you are determined to perfecting your kayaking strokes and are willing to suffer in the process.
9. High-Angle Blade is great for speed and competition.
10. Free Black Bag for each paddle. 128cm paddle bag with compartment and foam provides sufficient protection for your 2-piece paddle, which is easy to storage and carrying.

If you know how wide your kayak is, you can use the Kayak Paddle Sizing Chart below to see the paddle length that will most likely suit you, according to your height.
Sit straight (like you would in a kayak) and to measure the distance between your butt and your eyes.
Using the chart above, you can then add 10 more centimetres to your paddle length if you plan on using a sit-on-top kayak. Then, add another 10 centimetres if using a fishing chair on top of it. But of course, if you're using a sit-in kayak then the above Sizing Chart is all you need.
The blades of high-angle kayak paddles are shorter and wider than low-angle paddles. They're designed to catch and hold the water for aggressive strokes, propelling your kayak forward faster.
The blades of low-angle kayak paddles are more long and narrow. This allows you to pull the blades through the water easier, meaning less fatigue. If you prefer a more relaxed paddle or will be on the water for several hours, low-angle kayaking is a great choice.
