For canoeing, you use a single-bladed paddle because the boat is hollow in order to be able to carry large loads. The user sits in a high position with their legs bent under them or kneeling. The movement is therefore more vertical with the upper body leaning forwards and a shorter paddle. In addition, a single-bladed paddle is less cumbersome when landing and mooring, which are frequent in canoeing because it is originally a boat used to move large loads along a river (trappers, Inuits)
How to choose the right size of canoe paddle? Simply put the paddle on the ground right in front of you; the top of the handle should touch your chin.
