Choosing an oar

An Oar to suit your needs

All oars at Croker Oars are custom made to order. Each shaft is individually tested for strength and agility. They are made to suit each individual and each individual has different needs.

Gathering information on each individual is the key to the perfect oar. There are many factors to be considered when ordering oars.

• The type of oar – Sculling, Rowing, Surf or Ocean
• Side needed – Bow, stroke or both

Second:
• Height
• Weight
• Gender
• Age

Third:
• Skill level – Beginner, Leisure, Competitive or Professional
(This will determin your deflection or flex)
