IDBF approved Dragon boat paddle with floaty foam AFT blade. With the same buoyancy as the Hong Kong wooden paddles, it has all the feel of wood with the durability of modern composites. The smooth blade profile makes it silky smooth in the water. These paddles feature AFT - Advanced Foam Technology - blades. These are made using a unique polyurethane foam construction to produce a paddle which is tough but is also light and floaty.

Blade                 
These paddles feature AFT - Advanced Foam Technology - blades. These are made using a unique polyurethane foam construction to produce a paddle which is tough but is also light and floaty. The superb buoyancy in the light-weight blade makes it a sheer delight to use – it’s excellent for support strokes and, with maximum efficiency in each stroke, saves the paddler energy over long distances.
 
Shaft                  
This paddle is available with the following shaft options:
Straight Titanium Enriched Alloy Shaft:
Corrosion resistant alloy specially selected for paddling use.

Straight Carbon Shaft
Made with Ainsworth filament wound technology - significantly lighter than other shafts on the market. This shaft comes with our standard grip which is a shrink PVC coating.

 
Length                
The most important factors in choosing the length for your paddle are your height and the type of Canoeing you'll be doing. We have tried to help you with this by creating a paddle guide, this is a guide only: personal preference is also an important factor.
