owned it, it might be worth a try, but why sink money into a doubtful purchase, not knowing if you can fix it?
What I can see in that closeup picture does not make me confident that you'd be trying to fix a quality paddle. That blue cracked stuff looks like plastic.
If you were working on a pure carbon paddle like one of mine, a repair might be possible with more carbon cloth, maybe a bit of Kevlar, and epoxy. Carbon and Kevlar are both light cloths, much lighter than glass. But my own experience fixing a greenstick fracture in a wooden paddle shaft is that a ragged crack like that in that kayak paddle, a crack in plastic, is going to tend to break even a carbon cloth repair. And if the repair is made too thick to break, it will break somewhere else.
