Usually I'm a low angle paddler. I've been using an older Werner Camano paddle 230cm. Now I'm going from a 26" wide boat to a 22" wide boat, so shorter shaft is in order. Right?
Now, maybe its because I have been pushing sometimes to keep up with the long boats, but I do modify my style to higher angle often.
So with the new boat I'm wondering what I should look for in a new paddle or should I wait and paddle it for a while with a shorter paddle (that I have)which has a simular blade to the Werner and see what happens before I purchase.
My husband & I are serious about getting into more open water, now that I'll have a boat that can handle it and I am looking into some "Beyond the Funamentals" paddling classes that include more edging, sweeps and low brace turns).
Suggestions, ideas, comments, please...
