Storm Paddles

I use a storm paddle as my spare paddle. It fits well on my front deck where I can reach it even if I am upside down under water. You cannot imagine how effective and comfortable the sliding stroke is until you spend a few hours using it. I recommend a one piece, yellow cedar, shoulderless design.  Kevin Floyd, a Canadian Inuit explains the storm pautik and sliding stroke in this video.
