Flat water or white water, what's your mood today? The right kayak paddle is a key element in making sure you are safe on white water but most efficient on flat-water. A slightly longer length gives you a longer catch, so you take less strokes on flat-water. 200cm for shorter people, 203cm for taller, will work great while allowing for performance white water strokes. The lighter the swing weight, the longer you'll be on the water. See which fit options and performance are best for you and your budget.
