Groms have specific needs that often go unrecognized. We have found the most important features in a kid’s paddle include a smaller shaft, a smaller adjustable range, a manageable blade size and a paddle that floats. The Keiki II addresses all of these. With an adjustable range of 53-69″ this paddle will fit a child who is 3’6″ to 5′ tall assuming the handle is 10″ overhead. The 70 square inch teardrop shaped blade is great because if your child only puts a part of the blade in the water it will still move them towards their destination.
