In this video we're going to help you understand the other key points you need to consider, as well as your weight, when choosing your perfect paddle blade size.
Choosing the right paddle blade size is just as important as choosing the right board. Using one too big or too small can make paddling hard work. And over loading your shoulders with a blade too big can also increase the risk of injury.
So as well as considering your body weight, make sure you also consider the following when deciding what blade size to use/buy…
What type of padder are you?
What is your upper body build?
What is your natural cadence?
What type of board are you paddling on?
What type of paddling are you going to be doing?
What are the conditions you’re going to be paddling in?
