JUST LIKE NESSMUK, 125 YEARS AGO

Small solo canoes designed for use with double-blade paddles were popular during the earliest days of recreational canoeing in the mid-1800s. The double-blade paddler almost doubles the single-blade user’s stroke-per-minute rate and increases speed. Double-blades allow smaller paddlers to keep up with, and even outrun, skilled single-blade users. Beginning paddlers can easily keep a straight course with a double-blade paddle. Our SpitFire is sized for modern paddlers.
