A habit can be good or bad, and we at Saltwood have plenty of both. We view a genuine connection and commitment to paddling as a great habit, a way for people to experience features of the natural world while challenging themselves and interacting with a broad community of fellow boaters. We consider ourselves fortunate to suffer this paddling habit and realize there are a lot of others who share our passion.
The Habit paddle has a large blade area and provides an aggressive purchase on the water. The blade feels really solid pulling hard on the power face as well as when driving off the back face. Like all the Saltwood line, the stiff blade forces the shaft to engage, letting you feel the level of power you want to deliver.
