Paddle Water Sports

There are many sports on our complete list of sports which involve paddling of some sort in water. Paddles can be either single blade with an open flat surface at one end for pushing through the water, or dual blades with paddle faces on both ends. Although paddling is different from rowing, I have included both these sports disciplines as they have many similarities, most significantly they both use a long-handled blade to propel the athlete through the water.
