But it will take practice in order for your brain to send the right signals to all your paddling muscles, so you'll feel comfortable again paddling with various paddles and finding the "sweet spot" for each.

Yes, the dye was cast for shorter paddles,almost 20 years ago, when U.S. Olympic paddler, Mike Harbold returned to Hawaii, after Barcelona, and out-surfed all his old surfski companions using his short K-1 flat water wing.

ps: when you're young, you can handle a longer paddle, but a shorter paddle helps delay the fatigue factor for us older paddlers.
