Low Angle

Low Angle

Low angle paddles feature blades which are long and narrow and meant to be inserted into the water closer to parallel with the surface of the water. If your top hand stays around shoulder height you are utilizing a low angle technique. This style of paddling is very efficient and commonly used for more recreational paddling or when covering long distances and will benefit from conserving energy and reduced fatigue.

Straight Shaft

Straight Shaft
