Whitewater Kayak Paddles

Ottawa Paddles has created the most technically advanced engineered designs and fit for our line of Canadian made whitewater paddles. We use the highest grade Aerospace materials, all made and certified in Canada.  We are paddlers and love to spend as much time on the water as possible. Our paddles are designed for comfort and to reduce fatigue on the water. We have developed a new blade style “Winged Dihedral” which incorporates the standard airfoil dihedral blade shape to reduce unwanted flutter and the power of a wing blade. Our non-slip grip is one of a kind and when paired with our bent shaft bow design, or our standard straight shaft, allows any height of paddler to paddle any length of paddle they want based on their preferred paddling style. Are you tall and love playboating? Get a 190 and enjoy the close to hand blade position in comfort! Are you short and  love creeking? Pick up a 210 and enjoy the extra power when you are racing down the river!

Physical Features

Available in the unique bow bent shaft:

When you are not forcing your hands to hold a paddle, your natural wrist positioning while sitting in a kayak follows an imaginary ark or bow. A straight paddle does not accommodate this natural tendency. The Ottawa Paddles bent shaft facilitates an ergonomic and comfortable wrist position leading to less fatigue and longer ventures on the water.

The trident grip allows for one paddle to comfortably fit all hand spacings no matter your arm length or height. You can have a short paddle if you are tall, and a long paddle if you are short or anything in between.
