I recently had the pleasure of filming and editing a new three-part video series all about kayak paddles with ACK’s Steve Messana. We know picking out a paddle can be a seemingly daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be! Part I covers the differences between kayak paddles (i.e. recreational, fishing, whitewater and touring). Part II covers the two main blade shapes and what that means for different paddlers and Part III covers the differences between build materials and how they can affect your paddling experience. Give ’em a view and let us know what you think! -Trent @ ACK
