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 between 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.
