  Try something different ...

High angle europaddle: Get a shorter paddle with a wider blade, preferably light and well made.
Try high angle paddling. There are very proficient low angle paddlers but my experience doing it seemed like it wasted energy. You may feel like you have to go after it harder with a high angle stroke but it seems to be more efficient in transferring power.

Try a greenland paddle. Completely different feel. Almost seems effortless with a nice fast boat.
