Bending Branches paddles
Posted by Peter Lyons on Jun 8, 2004
We like them; they seem well-suited for this boat. But the blades are very large; I think when I build a sea kayak, I will look for something with a smaller blade so I can pick up the tempo a bit. I tried a few greenland paddles at the meet. It felt weird; it seemed like no matter how slowly I paddled, I could feel the end of the blade causing cavitation in the water.
