Factory Upgrade to a Two-piece Paddle

But wait, there’s more. Upgrade to a two-piece paddle and get Alpha Outdoors ‘Free Shipping’ to NZ cities and major towns. This is because you have to pay an extra handling charge to courier one-piece paddles (except if they are packaged with a new kayak), so it is not a lot more to buy a take-apart paddle.

Two-piece ‘split shaft’ take-apart paddle. Perfect for travelling. Easy to stow as an emergency back-up paddle.

  • Grooved plastic spigot
  • Push button lock
  • Can be fitted to aluminium or fibreglass shafts
