Braca Children Paddle


3 in stock

Youth-Sized, 50% Carbon, Wing Paddle

Paddle of choice for young US Development Club Paddlers

Braca Children is designed with the same tear-drop shape used in Braca I and Braca IV but proportionally reduced for youth.  This youth-sized paddle is manufactured with a carbon, fiberglass combination resulting in a paddle with more flex. These softer mechanics allow for less stress on young joints and muscles, reducing common kayaking injuries.  The youth shaft diameter is slightly smaller than the standard sized shafts.

Also, consider the Braca IV Carbon 60 paddle in smaller sizes.  This is basically the same paddle as the Braca Children but with a choice of standard-diameter shafts.  Another great way to get Braca quality at a great price for young paddlers!

Competing and training? Don't miss the other possible kayak paddles: 
  • Braca XI Van Dusen ’92 Our best-selling paddle is the Braca XI Van Dusen ’92. The XI Van Dusen is also a great choice for ICF kayak sprinters and is used by World Champions and top surf skiers alike. The Braca XI (11) is also available in sizes for larger sprinters through youth sizes.  The Braca XI was added due to high demand from competitive racers and team riders, it is one of our top sellers in the USA. It is a more dramatic twist teardrop with smoothly delivered power at all stages of the forward stroke and delivers smooth power at all cadences.
  • Braca VII Due to the special shape, this blade feels bigger compared to a normal ‘tear-drop’ blade with the same area size, such as the Braca I & IV shape. Braca VII are typically used for marathon and sprint, depending on the size of the paddler. Braca VI, a larger version of the same extreme teardrop as the VII, are more typically sprint paddles due to their large size. The VII is a favorite with many top competitors.
