I need some help selecting a kayak paddle. I suspect that I'm asking a question that has already been asked multiple times before, but I hope you'll indulge me and and answer it again.
I've been fishing out of 10 ft SINK style kayak for years, and I just had the opportunity to get a Diablo Amigo. Compared to what I'm used to, this kayak is huge! I pretty much have no clue how to select the right length paddle for this kayak.
It has the elevated seat and it is 37.5 in. wide. I'm assuming that I will need a longer paddle than I'm used to using, but how do you decide the right length of paddle to use?
The kayak did not come from a dealer, but I figure I'll go to one of the local shops for help selecting the best the paddle. However, I'd like to have some idea about where to start before I go shopping.
So, how about it, anyone willing to share some basic paddle selection tips?
