see too large blades on cut down shaft being called 'kids' paddles ... Typically, these paddles are also heavier than yours as well .. Ugh.
Putting a too long, overly large paddle in your childs hands is counter productive to what you want as a parent.

Kids < 5 - 12 are really not that strong.

They want to and NEED to be able to 'spin' the paddles just like you. This means the blades have to be tiny.

We make kids paddles for kids ...Custom. With small shafts and blades. They weigh less than one pound but are sturdy enough for tossing around. I humbly ask 75.00 for these.

The kids can choose up to 3 colors per paddle.

A fun 'review'
