The paddle is awesome for both rolling and paddling. — Frode Wiggen
A Greenland kayak paddle is narrow so the hand can grasp the blade near the end without having to grasp the tip, which on a traditional paddle is connected to the blade by a mortise and tenon joint. So the extreme width of a Greenland blade should be no wider than the paddler can grasp between the web of the thumb and the second joint of the forefinger. A paddle that has a blade too wide to grasp is not a Greenland paddle,because it cannot be used like one.
The Greenland paddle has become increasingly popular among sea kayakers in North America, Europe, and other parts of the world. Apart from its romantic association with the people who taught Europeans to kayak and to roll, the narrow-bladed Greenland paddle is popular because it is easy to brace and roll with and is not very susceptible to strong winds. Also, because it slips a little at the beginning of a stroke, it is easier on the muscles, and thus less fatiguing on day-long trips than wide-bladed “Euro”-style paddles. A further benefit for northern kayakers is that the Greenland kayak paddle is adapted for paddling in freezing conditions.The shoulders where the blades and loom meet make an ice-coated loom easier to grip, while the narrow ends of the blades, which are immersed in water while paddling, offer an ice-free grip for emergency braces and rolls.
The distinct surface on the carbon paddle allows for a firm grip, even when it gets wet. The paddle offers a high-friction surface just like a wooden paddle, yet feels smooth and, as such, protects against blisters on the hands.The joint is a hexagonal carbon fitting secured with a simple snap lock
Ideal with skin on frame & folding kayaks
Keeps you warm & dry and the inside of your kayak free from dirt & debris.
Made from durable, waterproof, Aquatherm, the Reed Chillcheater sea sock has taped seams
Adds safety – in the event of a wet exit the amount of water entering the boat is limited as the sea sock remains inside the kayak.
Can be used in a hard shell kayak too especially where bulkheads are not watertight.
Adds insulation for coldwater paddling.
Protects the kayak frame & skin from grit and water – the sand & dirt stays in the sock not your kayak.
After use simply remove the sea sock & wash (by hand or in the machine at 40º)
The "sock" is inserted into the cockpit opening and is secured to the cockpit coaming. The paddler sits inside the sock and fits the spray skirt over the coaming as usual. See the Nortik Navigator on the left.
Size: Made to fit your kayak cockpit dimensions
