Description

Gara Racing Paddles are associated with many of the worlds top paddlers in a multitude of disciplines from river and flatwater marathon racing to Sprinting and surf ski paddling. Gara Racing Paddles were used during the 2014 season winning the K1 and K2 world marathon titles as well as many international surfski races with Hank McGregor and Jasper Mocke and river marathon races with Andy Birkitt.

Gara Racing Paddles are produced with the highest care and quality. A great deal of research and design has gone into the manufacturing process that defines the Gara Paddle brand. You can be assured that many years of hands on experience with both the materials used and the finished product has brought you the Gara paddles you order. Custom hand operated compression presses are used to apply up to 5 tons of pressure on each Gara paddle blade in setting the carbon fibre design. The presses allow a consistent 60 degree (Celcius) heat treatment of each blade through an aluminium block lazer cut to the shape of your paddle. This ensures even curing of the carbon fibre blades and creates exceptionally light, strong blades. The use of a combination of high quality carbon fibre sheets crossed with multi-axial and uni-directional strands along the length of the blade ensure just enough “give” in the blade under extreme stress, while ensuring supreme strength in river and sprint conditions.

GP2 – A unique shape of blade that provides excellent stability in the water and does not require a perfect paddling style or stroke to be effective. It is popular in disciplines such as surf ski, river paddling (both long distance and white-water racing), flat-water marathons and sprinting. Size – Medium – very strong females, medium to strong males

How to order?

Please feel free to contact us if you have any queries or require a recommendation as to what paddle would best suit. We are more than happy to assist and would prefer you do this then make a less suitable selection. However, if you have a pretty good idea of what you want then simply do the following:

  1. Decide if the paddle is going to be fixed or adjustable in length (and angle)
  2. If fixed, then simply select the shaft option you require and enter the length and angle in the fields provided
  3. If adjustable, choose the adjustor system that best suits your needs (e.g. plastic or metal), select the shaft type you require specific to the adjustor type you chose and finally provide the minimum adjustment length for the paddle.
