Featuring a shorter paddle shaft and smaller blades, the Hi Five Paddle is sized specifically for younger paddlers. This paddle also features a smaller diameter shaft for smaller hands. it will offer a more comfortable fit for kids than a standard, adult paddle. It is generally well-suited to paddlers under 5 feet tall.
Also, this paddle is really two paddles in one! It's a kayak paddle that can easily be converted to a standup paddleboard paddle by detaching one of the blades and attaching the 3rd piece which is a shaft with a hand grip for SUP paddling. Additionally, kids can change the angle of their blade just like the grown-ups do.
This paddle works perfectly with the Hi Five Kids Kayak but will also allow your children to more comfortably paddle other smaller SUP boards or kids/smaller kayaks.
