Oars and Paddles

Paddles and oars are versatile and essential pieces of equipment for a day spent on the water. Whether it be paddleboarding, kayaking, canoeing or as a safety instrument while stuck on the water, there's no denying you don't want to be stuck without a paddle.

Purchasing Oars and Paddles with Boating And RV

Oar and Paddle designs haven’t really changed much over the years, however, with more lightweight and durable materials available, oar and paddle manufactures have been able to make a variety of products to suit the water user’s needs and budget. Key considerations for picking the paddle for your needs include:

  • Material - Paddles come in wood, aluminum and plastic varieties
  • Length - Fixed shaft or extendable shaft
  • Grip or handle - Round grip or T-grip
  • Weight
  • Single or double ended (double ended for canoe/kayak)

Paddle or Oar? What's the difference?

The Difference between a paddle and an Oar is a Paddle doesn’t require an oarlock or throttle and is not fixed to the boat. An Oar is fixed to the boat (usually one on each side) and used to row, whereas a paddle is free and the user paddles using one hand.
