A sleak lightweight paddle is great for tireless fast paddleing. A friend let me use his resently and it was light as a feather, super nice. I was paddleing my light 10' pelican river kayak, and gave it back quickly before getting totally spoiled, it was that nice, but it did cost $700.

But the standard Hobie one works fine for the little paddleing done with the foot powered unit in these Hobies, they just serve as auxillery power
When getting off the beach or thru some underwater obstacles, most of the time it is bungied to the side of the boat and foot power is used.
These are really quite different from normal kayaks.
Specifically designed for fishing, wider, more stable, using foot power leaving hands free for fishing.
Perfect for Vash's kayak fishing goal!

Cheers Richard
