Playboating Paddles or Crank Shaft Kayak Paddles

The Werner Sidekick, a cranked shaft kayak paddle that is ideal for kayak playboating. The large powerful blades are perfect for the large and stronger kayakers.

Werner designed the sidekick bent shaft to give great levels of comfort and performance. This is achieved by the large powerful blades, they feature a downwards tilt which ensures they can pass closely to the kayak, it also gives them the speed you need to link playboating tricks together. The paddle blades are made from a continuous weave glass fibre which also has a multi-layer layup. Where the paddle blades meet the paddle shaft they are at their thinnest. As you then work down the paddle blades to the end they gain extra thickness in two positions. By the time you get to the end they are at their thickest to give the best levels of durability. The sidekick then features a cranked kayak paddle shaft. This does two things, firstly the crank element of it keeps the wrists and hands correctly aligned, this helps to reduce fatigue and also potential injury due to less stress. The shaft also has index grips, this is where the paddle shaft is shaped to offer and allow the hand’s better levels of contact with the paddle. This makes it possible to get a better grip to get enhanced  performance while paddling.

February Staff Newsletter

February was a busy month in the shop. As well as a number of reps coming to see us, and a number of visits to make, we also attended the Run, Walk, Crawl Brecon to Cardiff Ultra, and hosted a climbing shoe demo with Tenaya at local bouldering wall Spot Climbing. We still managed to get out, and members of Team Up and Under could be found in many parts of the UK; including in the Brecon Beacons, the Lakes, South Downs, Scotland, as well as further afield in Chamonix and George L still in Thailand.
