Paddles for Canoeing, Kayaking and Paddle Boarding

A Wide Range Of Paddles To Suit Every Paddling Discipline

Whether canoeing, kayaking, rafting or SUP-ing every paddler will require a paddle (and maybe even a spare!). We supply paddles to suit every canoe/kayak/board and paddling style. Generally speaking, the higher priced paddles are constructed from higher quality materials to give greater performance and durability and a also significant weight reduction. Most of the longer sea kayaking, SOT and touring kayak paddles are longer and available as 1 or 2-piece shafts. Canoe paddles are single bladed and have a t-grip on the other end. Most of the SUP paddles are adjustable in length and breakdown into 3 pieces for easy transportation. The white-water paddles are normally shorter, for use on shallow rivers and rapids and enable a faster stroke rate.

Paddle size is decided by the height of the paddler, their personal preference, the type and length of kayak/board/canoe they are using, the style of paddling and water type they are paddling on. If you would like any help or advice, all the staff at Manchester Canoes are keen paddlers and can offer assistance if required. Please email us or phone us on 01925 818437.
