But the repair might add a bit of disbalance, one blade being heavier... Sand, patch, spray paint/clear coat it. And it will have a bit of a bump in an area where it might be noticeable in the water if you are really sensitive...

If the other side of the paddle opposite to the crack is also damaged, you might need a sleeve and repair both sides.

Edit: I've cut in half and rejoined the shaft of my AT2 Flexi whitewater paddle, so a similar structural patch - no issues, but there is a visible bump. Mine is in the middle of the shaft so it does not matter, but yours would be on the blade, near the area where a nice foill shape would be good to maintain ...
