ive been researchiong this for a few weeks now. my understanding is there isnt a standard. modern is one way. 50 years ago there were different preferences. 100 years ago..........200 years ago...... it realy just depends.
ive been collecting pictures and ill go with the longer,narrower style. they say they are quieter and splashh less water to make for better efficientcy. i realy have no idea,but like the shape of native paddles better. good luck on the search.and remember ,,,,,,,,, pictures pictures,pictures....
