Which model did you get and what year Outback do you have? The newer (at least 2017)come with much lighter paddles than the older ones. That being said, the drive on my 2017 Outback broke Saturday and I STRUGGLED to paddle in against the wind & swell. It was dangerous as the wind blew me over a reef with breakers as I tried to diagnose the drive problem. If I can get a new paddle that makes it significantly easier I will. How does one select the correct length paddle?
