SKU: N/A Categories: , ,


Origin of the name: Kadoma is the nickname that the late Hendri Coetzee got from locals in Uganda, which means “traveller” in one dialect and “bravery” in another. Hendri was a close friend of mine, and his untimely death left a huge void in my own heart and also in the whitewater community as a whole. I chose to honour Hendri’s memory with this blade design, which I’m sure would bring a smile to his face wherever he is riding the dragon’s back right now.

Blade design: The Kadoma design offers a unique combination of no flutter in the forward stroke, very smooth sliding strokes and a stable back stroke. It is powerful yet predictable. The voluminous blade feels light in the water, and an added bonus is that it floats high if you should part company with it. All these attributes makes it the perfect blade for running whitewater. It can be used for playboating, but it really comes into its own when threading smooth lines down complex rapids.

Blade construction: The Kadoma blade is carefully constructed with a composite mixture of carbon fibre, different types of glass and a tough epoxy resin, making it extremely tough and durable.

Shaft options: The Kadoma comes standard with a tough glass shaft. It’s not the lightest shaft on the market, but pretty indestructible. When you venture into the unknown, you want to know your paddle is bombproof.
