@shadski Thanks for reaching out!

The size of paddle that will work best for you is going to depend on the width of your kayak as well as your height. You can find a useful chart in this Expert Advice article, How to Choose Kayak Paddles. Additionally, we encourage you to check out this conversation we had with another user, Kayak Paddle: How do I know the right size?

We'll tag in @REI-EricP and @REI-BreeM for some of their expertise here as well.

Hope this helps!
