Open Canoe Paddles

Canoe paddle size guide

There are a number of ways to measure what size canoe paddle you will need, however it is worth bearing in mind that 56" and 58" size paddles fit 80% of all paddlers for general use. For deep water paddles you might need to add a couple of inches, whereas whitewater paddlers might want to take off a couple of inches.

Here are a couple of ways to measure what length paddle you need.

Sit up-right in a chair, and get someone to measure from the seat to your chin. Now add Canoes27-28" for general use and white water paddles, and 31-33" for deepwater paddles.

Also a good method to judge the length of a canoe paddle shaft is to kneel up and measure from the floor to the top of your shoulder. This gives you a measurement for just the length from T-grip to the top of the paddle blade.

This is just a rough guide, it is far better to come in store and talk to one of our experienced staff who will be happy to help you find the right paddle for your needs.
