General information on blade sizes:
The blade’s size can be compared to the gears of a bike: the higher the gear or the smaller the blade, the less effort each stroke consumes with less forward motion generated. The lower the gear or the bigger the blade, the more energy will be used and the more forward motion will be generated. The smaller blade sizes are recommended for long paddle sessions, lighter people, or those with a high cadence stroke. The larger blade sizes provide immediate power with only a few strokes enabling fast and late drops into waves. As paddlers are becoming more experienced, many are choosing a smaller blade size, which is less fatiguing during longer sessions.
