  Pacific Paddles
  Posted by: willowleaf on Apr-01-13 9:48 PM (EST)
 

Another moderate priced paddle option that might work for your wife is made by a guy with a home workshop who makes Pacific Paddles. I got one because they break down to 3 pieces and I needed that to carry with my folding kayaks for air travel. Though they are aluminum shaft, the shaft is slender and light and the paddles have the slender blades I prefer. I think I paid less than $120 for his T-1 model last year.

Also something like the "Bumfortable" seat might snug up the cockpit for her small frame and raise her a little to make the paddling angle more comfortable in a deep hull.
