Sorry I started with aluminum Cannon paddles and they gave me tendon problems. Fine for some one who paddles a couple of times a year but if you spend a lot of time on the water you will get rid of them. They also seem impossible to keep the ferrules working if you paddle salt water. The aquabound suggestion above is a good starting paddle.

After you have got a little experience, look for the lightest most efficient paddle you can find, you will discover that the paddle adds more to your enjoyment than the boat.

When you have some experience check out a paddle from Pat at Onno Paddles.
