The Bending Branches Loon Paddle is a wood canoe paddle for the beginner. When you're starting out you've probably just spent a whole bunch on a new canoe, so don't feel like you have to break the bank on a paddle right away. Especially when you're not quite sure how to properly navigate rock-infested waters. The paddle itself is nice and lightweight, while remaining durable thanks to the solid basswood shaft and combination basswood/maple blade. The straight shaft and classic grip fit nice in the hands and help gain the skills a beginner paddler needs. A caramel partial rockgard is found at the blade edge, protecting the wood from damage every time you find yourself pushing off the rocky shores your boat got stuck upon.

General Rule: the shortest paddle that allows you to properly reach the water is best. In the middle of their stroke, most paddlers hold the grip so that their top hand is about the height of their nose, and the point where the paddle blade meets the shaft (the throat) is at the water line.

Measuring the length of your torso is a good way to approximate that geometry. Here's a simple and accurate way to meaure your torso.
   • Sit up straight, don't slouch, on a flat chair.
   • Measure the distance from the surface of the chair between your legs to your nose.
   • Then follow the chart above.

An easy way to measure in the field is to place the grip of the paddle between your legs while sitting. Mark where the shoulder of the blade (the point where the blade meets the shaft) hits you. The shoulder on a straight shaft should be at your forehead; the shoulder on a bent shaft should be at your nose.
