In an effort to keep our YakAngler readers up to date with the many many products out on the market, we search the web and industry news vigorously.  We search for anything related to kayak fishing that may help you catch the next big fish.  Weather it's fishing gear, paddling gear, kayaks, or even something totally off the wall, we want to make sure that our readers have an opportunity to see it.  With that said, I came across a company that has created a pretty unique paddle design, GullWing Paddles.

Art Carlow invented the Gullwing paddle and currently sells it in two sizes; the 215cm model and the 230 cm model. According to Art's story listed on his website, he created the paddle design after watching his rowwing for Harvard.  He noticed that the design of the paddle being used by the row team inproved the rower's speed and power, as well allowing the oar to get in and out of the water quicker.  He decided to incorporate a similar design into his kayak paddle.

Product Features:

  • Angled blades that cut just below the water surface for glide rather than  heavy dipping
  • Changable Blades
  • Bowed Handles
  • Made of Powder-coated aluminum
  • Ergonomic design
  • Nylon / fiberglass blade

The Gullwing has been warmly welcomed by would-be paddlers with a variety of physical challenges, but it is being enthusiastically received, as well, by young families and weekend kayakers, by salt water and freshwater kayak enthusiasts of all ages and physical abilities. And me? I’m out on the water for hours at a time with no pain. Count me as one who’d rather glide than dig.
