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.
