Our steering blade has a slightly longer elongated shape to reach deep under the canoe. It was built to hold its position alongside the hull. When it is inserted into the water it clearly grabs onto the hull. It will take good size waves such as Pailolo and normal Molokai swells as well as regattas and quiet lakes. But on really big days, it's best to use special big wave blades. Otherwise it is a very popular blade and is always in demand. It's easy to steer and turns quickly. As always all our blades are edged with a protective material.
