Split Kayak Paddles

2 Piece Paddles for Kayaking and Canoeing

Kayak paddles can come supplied ready to be split into 2 (or sometimes 4) pieces. Two-part paddles make storage and transportation much easier than carrying a full-length paddle. It is often prudent to carry a spare paddle out on the water, especially in rougher conditions, or when far from the shore or car park. An emergency kayak paddle can be used if a main paddle becomes lost or accidently broken.

A spare split paddle can be stashed away in the back of a white-water kayak, behind the seat in an inflatable kayak or on the deck of a touring/sea kayak. Break-apart paddles are also the preferred choice of inflatable kayakers, as having easily transported paddles make sense for when the kayak is packed down into a storage bag.

Split kayak paddles have various different mechanisms to secure the parts in place, so they can be just as effective as one-piece paddles during use on the water. Another advantage of split paddles is that the feather/angle on the blades can be altered, making them suitable for left/right-handed paddlers, and easily adjustable to suit the prevailing conditions.
