Do You Have Paddle Questions


Do you have questions on the stand up paddles? I’m going to interview Dave Chun who started Kialoa Paddles 17 years ago next Tuesday. If you guys or gals have any questions then post them as a comment and I’ll ask him.

    What makes his paddles different from other brands? There are some many brands to choose from now, we need to know why we should consider his brand.

    I’m interested in the question on both bent shaft and angled blades. I haven’t paddled my latest on yet but it’s a straight shaft and straight blade so I should know this weekend. At least how it works for me. Here’s the latest paddle underway. I’m still not convinced the mechanics of the stroke require any angles.

    Jon, the paddle angle is usually between 8 and 14 degrees on most of the paddles out there.

    I have a two piece paddle that is starting to develop some play at the joint. Questions, What’s the best way to get rid of the looseness? And, how much will this weaken the paddle shaft? Thanks, Tim

    Tim – I asked Todd to answer your question because they make the 2 pc paddles. He said to put a little bit of packing tape around the male end of the paddle shaft and that should get rid of the looseness. It won’t weaken the paddle.
