Overbuilt for your safety. The NRS Sea Kayak Paddle Float gives you unmatched support for self rescue.
  • This easy to use compact paddle float serves as an outrigger to stabilize your boat in an unassisted re-entry situation.
  • The huge main pocket easily slips over a paddle blade and securely buckles to the shaft with 1" webbing and a barrel lock draw cord.
  • Constructed with a durable nylon outer shell with 2" webbing grab loop (not shown).
  • Dual air chamber design with easy-to-use twist valves provide you with a back up chamber if ever necessary.
  • Reflective tape for additional visibility.
Note: To prevent water entry, be sure the air chamber valves are closed until you need to inflate a chamber. You only need to inflate one of the air chambers while using the float.

    Q:

    Would this object be willing to cling passionately to my Greenland paddle if my roll fails?
    Asked on 4/15/2014 by David

      A:

      David, the blade pocket is 13" wide and 24" long. It was designed with the more modern composite blade shapes in mind. You can certainly give it a try!

      Sorry, I have not ever tried on a Greenland.
      You have to blow this up - no time or air if your roll fails! Wet exit time!

    Q:

    Would the NRS Sea Kayak Paddle Float work with a 3.5 inch blade of a greenland paddle? Could it be secured adequately? Thank you ahead of time for your opinion before I purchase one.

      A:

      I haven't used it on a greenland paddle in the water but have put it on
      and inflated it. It isn't ideal but I think it will stay on the
      paddle. I do expect to test it in the water next week at the Great
      Lakes Sea Kayaking Symposium.

      A:

      Jon,
      I recently acquired a carbon fiber Greenland paddle with a 3.25" blade.
      I've tested this paddle float and the new paddle at home and between the
      buckle closure, the drawstring closure, and the friction created by actual
      inflation of the chamber/s I believe it will work fine with my new
      Greenland paddle. However, I have not yet actually attempted an actual
      self rescue with the new Greenland paddle and the paddle float yet. Hope
      this helps!

      A:

      Jon, the blade width will easily fit in the Paddle Float. There's 27" from the bottom of the blade pocket to the drawcord closure. For a greenland paddle that's probably not long enough to secure it above the throat of the paddle. You'll have to get creative to make it work.

    Q:

    In Duke's review he said "keep the breathing tube lubricated during storage". What lubricant material is recommended?
    Asked on 11/20/2012 by Rambo from Kirkland, WA

      A:

      He must be referring to the screw on cap. Pool and river water will make it
      sticky and hard to turn. Just rinsing it with clean water should do the
      trick. But using some 303 should work too.

    Q:

    paddle float inflation tubes have cracked and broken, can the tube itself be purchased and be retrofitted into the float, or purchase a new float ? thank you

      A:

      I have had the same problem with the inflation tubes on my floation air bags for the front and rear of the kayak.
      Need an answer for the probem myself, the bags are perfectly good, but the inflation tube material cracks.
      NRS needs to address this and put it in an email to everyone.

      A:

      If the inflation tube has cracked, that sounds like a warranty issue. Return it for evaluation.

      I purchased this float just incase NRS ever discontinued this model. I already have the same model and have been using it for years. Unlike some other paddle floats I have used this ones has a large opening, making it easy to insert the paddle blade and once on and secured it stays on. It has two large separate bladders so if one is punctured the other will still be intact. The bladders are so large that I have never had to fill both. It is simple to fill with air, a quick turn and a few breaths you are back in your kayak. When a roll fails and you are paddling alone this is the paddle float I want.

      I bought 4 paddle floats in 2008, and the valves all fell out by 2010. I use epoxy to repair the valves when I can find them, but 2 are MIA. For almost $50, the bags are not worth it.

                    All inflatable psddle flaots should be dual chamber and this one is. I replaced my last one when one chaber failed. This looks to be of sturdier material and I hope for long use. The clip buckle and draw string make it fit both euro and Greenland paddles. the mesh bottom makes it self draining. The clip buckle and webbing near the foot make it an emergency PFD for a swimmer. I keep it cliped on deck and it is ready to deploy.
