When determining paddle length, the kayak width is the limiting factor for recreational kayaking. The sizing chart below should ensure you aren't hitting your knuckles on the hull as you paddle. For sleeker touring/sea kayaks ones paddling style and physical size plays more heavily.
|Kayak Width||Under 23"||24" to 28"||29"-33"||34"+|
|Paddler Height||Recommended Paddle Length|
|Under 5'5"||210 cm||220 cm||230 cm||240 cm|
|5'5" - 5'11"||220 cm||230 cm||240 cm||250 cm|
|6'+||220 cm||230 cm||250 cm||260 cm|
An easy way to measure in the field is to hold a paddle horizontally in your hands with your elbows slightly inside a 90 degree angle (most paddles are ovalized in the area they should be gripped). Your hands should be about two-thirds of the way between the center of the shaft and the shoulder of the blade. Again, always take stroke angle and boat width into consideration, and demo the paddle whenever possible.
When looking to choose a paddle for kayak fishing, your boat's width will be the most important factor. Kayak fishing boats are often wider than typical kayaks and require a longer paddle. After measuring the width of your kayak, follow the chart above for a suggested paddle length.
