I have two paddles. One is a $300 carbon paddle and the other $130 hybrid paddle. When I paddle the bays or the gulf I like the carbon paddle. When I paddle the rivers and creaks I like the hybrid paddle.
An over simplification is that the lighter the paddle the higher the price. I would recommend a middle ground paddle for a start. If you decide to upgrade paddles later the middle ground paddle would be a good spare.
A PFD is the one piece of equipment you should never comprimise on.
