      Their paddle features a wooden shaft and carbon blade all on a totally straight frame. In the middle of the canoe seats number 3 and 4 known as the powerhouse are the strong and powerful paddlers. Evolution of Paddling Techniques Prior to the arrival of the missionaries in the Hawaiian Islands inHawaiians clearly had their own defined paddling style. The trend for marathon for both canoes and kayaks is to go short and keep the stroke rate up. The Paddle A well designed, handcrafted timber paddle is surely a work of art.
