KAYAK PADDLES FROM GULLWING
Dig. The very word suggests hard labor. And whether you
are using a shovel or a kayak paddle, digging means work. Glide is the
verb of choice for Art Carlow, the inventor of the Gullwing kayak paddle.
“I’d rather glide than dig,” he claims. Moreover, he
is convinced that most kayak enthusiasts would agree.
And glide is just what the Gullwing paddle allows a kayak to do. Art Carlow
set out to design a paddle that would provide an ultimate glide, but he
also wanted to invent an ergonomic kayak paddle. But Art didn’t
stop with just one ergonomic feature. He kept tweaking his design, adding
one ergonomic benefit after another until he had a prototype paddle that
was startlingly unique.
Art designed a paddle with a curved handle. He crafted it
from powder-coated aluminum alloy that was light in weight and offered
an “advantaged” grip. Art improved the traditional drip guards.
Then he turned his attention to the blades. These are made of a nylon/fiberglass
composition that offers lightness, durability and extra power. He made
the blades to snap on and off for easy replacement. And, taking his cue
from the Harvard rowing team, he engineered a blade design that was curved
for an enhanced stroke—a blade asymmetrically shaped and angled
to carve maximum water area from each stroke and to provide greater speed
and straighter glide.
Who uses the Gullwing kayak paddle? Clearly, folks whose
physical challenges might have limited their ability to enjoy the sport
of kayaking have found they can enjoy the sport in comfort. Young families
and weekend kayakers are enthusiastic about Gullwing. Fishermen applaud
the adaptability of some of the Gullwing benefits to their sport: the
balanced paddle rests easily and safely on the kayak’s bow or snugs
neatly along its side. The design, which allows the paddle to flip 180
degrees to reverse direction or to stop, allows them access to narrow
coves and inlets where fish like to feed. In fact, there are Gullwing
fans in all age groups and with a wide range of water skills and abilities.
