Paddle length

Not a kayaker, but hope the kid will be. How should one determine the proper paddle length? He is about 4.5 feet tall.

This will ask you questions that you might not know the answer to so just guess but in the end you get a suggested length, its a guideline though is about personal preference.

That was a fun distraction.
I've been paddling for a while and have liked going a bit short with my AT2 for the last few years. I think it works better in a playboat.
Hope the young one gets into it though!
Please take a look at my Photo Web Gallery.
I also have here some gear reviews (that I might update soon).
