River Running

River Running

Paddles with a river running blade shape will have a more pronounced tip and larger portion of the surface area above the center line of the blade. This allows for an earlier more powerful catch providing a more powerful forward stroke, making them ideal for river running, creeking or coastal rock gardening.
