Have you noticed that many Aleut paddles are long and narrow? This is not due to material limitations, but because Eskimos often paddled in high-wind conditions. The so dubbed Wind Swift combines Aleut features with some more modern European concepts to create a paddle that is excellent in high winds and still delivers a healthy amount of paddle power for all but the most demanding conditions. Another major advantage to this style of paddle is kindness to joints and muscles. If you do not paddle frequently or already have joint and muscle issues, you will love how you feel after a day of paddling with the Wind Swift.
Eddyline paddles feature carbon shafts for added strength and stiffness. We only use straight shafts, which provide maximum versatility for all paddling conditions and styles. The grip range has a slight oval shape for comfort and indexing.
Our standard ferrule option is the classic, three-hole push-button with 45ºL-0º-45ºR feathering. This simple ferrule is time tested and expedition proven. It is easy to use and easy to maintain.
Blade Dimensions: 18 x 5
Surface Area: 75 sq. in.
*Please note that "backordered" paddles are built to order. We try to
fulfill backorders within a week, but it may take up to two weeks
during peak season. If you need your paddle for a trip or special
event, please let us know in the comments section of your order.
