 Waka Ama / Va'a / Outrigger Canoe Paddles

The broadbill from Tai Paddles continues to be the paddle of choice for many racing teams worldwide. Maintaining its popularity against the HIKU from Tai Paddles.

The angle on the blade has been adjusted slightly for a cleaner entry and increased catch. This design has a flat surface on the power face,  which results in a forgiving entry and exit, assisting stroke fluidity. 

All new paddles from TP have new embedded decals and abs edging to improve the durability.

The Broadbill is light weight, strong and with similar flex properties to a timber shaft. This is achieved by controlling the percentage of carbon fibre and fibreglass in the shaft and also the orientation of the fibre weave. The result is consistent shaft weight and flex.

The shaft is double bend/curved and available in two flex options. Regular Flex  for all round paddling and Stiff Flex for shorter distance and stronger paddlers.

 Paddler Profile:

The Broadbill would compliment paddlers with a longer reach, enhancing positive entry in the stroke. It's lightweight, therefore would also compliment the less stronger paddler with regular flex to avoid 'water flutter' . 

For stronger paddlers, the Stiff Flex would be beneficial. All said, this paddle is perfect for the everyday paddler. 

Finally, let's address blade width.  With a range of blade lengths available, please remember , the wider the blade the more water will be pulled. So... wider blades will generally be more comfortable for stronger paddles. Stroke rating must also be considered. If a high rating is used a smaller width blade is generally more comfortable and assists early fatigue.
