New to OC-1 questions

I am about to get my first OC-1...any paddle suggestions for a 5'8" 165 lber. Brands? Models, sizes?

uh oh. Please make sure you've read through the old threads cause the locals kinda get nuts with this question. I promise, one day there will be a canoe database review type section on this website. :)

edit: I read your question again, I guess you are asking about paddles not canoes.

Aloha Zumapop,

A great place to start is on the Kialoa paddle website, Click on products, and then in resources, click on How To Choose. there is a guide for height and paddle size matches. Good Luck.
Before getting your first one, if you can try a few to get the feel, that would be optimal.


Have Fun...Kicbacmaui!
