smaller paddle won't necessarily improve or even help you improve your stroke. Your paddle size and cut of the paddle will be determined by what you like as far as a stroke is. Do you want a faster cadence? do you surf and need a more forward loading paddle? Do you want to do long days with a loaded kayak or unloaded kayak? Do you want the paddle to load farther back in the stroke in order to lessen fatigue ? are your hands small but shoulders and strength huge? {paddle needs to be cut to take advantage of this too}

The kind of stroke and use will determine what you should get....not just a smaller paddle.
