Description

The Sugar Island cruising paddle is made of ash. That guarantees a strong and relatively light paddle. The pear-shaped oiled grip gives the Sugar Island a pleasant and smooth feel. The Sugar Island cruising paddle is available with a semi-gloss varnished or an oiled finish.

Which size?

Sizing the paddle is best done on the water in your own canoe. The length of the shaft is dependent on your seating position, the height of the seats and the freeboard of the canoe. Sit in the canoe and measure the vertical distance from your horizontally outreached hand to the waterline. This measurement matches the distance from a paddle’s grip to the throat, where the paddle shaft meets the blade.

On land, trying out a paddle: sit down on a flat surface. Hold the paddle upside down, place the grip between your legs. The throat of the paddle should be between your eyes. Without a paddle at hand, measure the distance between your bottom and your eyes.
