Turns out, Bending Branches makes great modernized paddles, as well! This beginner paddle is a great option for anyone who is just getting into the watersport.

For beginners, aluminum construction can be more of a bonus than for more experienced kayakers. If you aren’t very familiar with paddle upkeep, for instance, this paddle is going to be able to withstand a lot of that abuse that new users often put a paddle through.

This paddle won’t perform at a premium level, but it'll certainly get the job done for years to come. Further, the blades use a asymmetrical dihedral design, so they shouldn’t flutter at all.

Keep in mind that it's going to run quite a bit heavier than other paddles on this list, given that it's made of untempered aluminum. This paddle weighs in at just over 50 ounces.

This paddle comes in four lengths: 210, 220, 230, and 240.

As beginners often forget (okay, fine, as I did as a beginner), kayak paddles can sometimes float away. You’ll want to purchase one of these to make sure you don’t end up without a paddle. Also avoid Without a Paddle 2, because that movie was terrible. ?

All “reasonable requests” for breakages are covered by this paddle’s warranty for up to a year.
