Kialoa Dragon Boat Paddle?

February 16, 2009

I found this picture of a Kialoa dragon boat paddle on an east coast dragon boat forum.

No reference of the new paddle on the Kialoa website but I did some bumping around and found this on their website:

Yes, it’s a Kialoa Dragon Boat paddle bag and it looks like two Kialoa dragon boat paddles inside.  It appears that this paddle is going to be released in late March.

Kialoa makes some great outrigger paddles – most of us use the Axel II for oc1 and oc6 paddling.

I’m a proponent of the stiffest, sharpest dragon boat paddle possible so the hybrid combination (wood shaft, carbon blade) used in their hybrid outrigger paddles may not be optimal in a dragon boat setting.

That being said, I can’t wait to get my hands on one.
