HOW TO HOLD KAYAK PADDLE
Start by grasping your paddle with both hands and centering your paddle shaft on top of your head. Your hands will be in the proper starting position when your elbows are bent at 90 degrees. Now lower your paddle and orient it as follows so you’re holding it correctly.
- Make sure the paddle blaes are in line with each other .
- Look at each paddle blade and make sure the longer edge of each clade is on the top.
- Make sure the scooped sides of your paddle blades are facing you.
- Place our large knuckles on top of the paddle shaft so that they are in line with the top of your paddle blades.
- Relax your grip.
