Aleutian Paddle Description
Aleutian paddle is another kind of traditional paddle, coming originally from Aleutian Islands, Alaska. Unlike greenland paddles, aleutian paddle has asymmetrical blades. One side of the blade (sometimes referred as sculling side) is almost flat and suits perfectly for sculling and rolling. The other side of the blade (power face) has a raised ridge running along the centerline of the blade. It helps to prevent the blade from chattering and allows to make more powerful strokes. Those two sides together give you a paddle, which is both quiet and powerful. Considering the length, aleutian paddles should be approximately 10cm (or 4 inches) longer than greeland paddles. Compared to euro-bladed paddles, the difference in length can be even until 15cm. East Pole Paddles' standard Aleutian paddle has 7 stripe lamination of western red ceder. This makes the paddle more stiffer and especially it is needed for longer paddle.
