    Q:

    I am purchasing a paddle as a gift for a whitewater rafting guide. Is there a certain length required for the guides? Do they need a longer paddle?

      A:

      The length of the paddle will depend on your height
      Basically want is as tall as you
      Also look for the larger blade
      I love the one I bought

      A:

      Bri, a guide sitting up on the stern of a raft needs a bit longer paddle. That length is somewhat personal preference; 66" is common, but a taller person might want a longer one.

      A:

      Yes a longer paddle is needed when sitting on the back of the boat. I
      paddle a Hyside ad the back is turned up a good bit
      I bought the longest guide paddle and love it.

      A:

      Not a big fan of this paddle, it's on the heavy side and gets water inside which adds the weight. In terms of length, I think this would be good for a guide.

      A:

      Guide paddles are much harder to determine what size a person really needs.
      For someone that is short they might want a longer paddle so they can get
      the paddle in the water. Longer paddles make it easier to control the boad
      as a guide. Someone that is tall they could go with a shorter paddle and
      be ok. Only because they have longer arms and are already at an advantage
      compared to sorter guides. Guide paddles are really all adout preference.
