High Performance Paddles
We like to keep the company small and produce only quality paddles. Mass production is good and it makes a lot of money, but it’s very stressful and it’s not what we are about. We enjoy specializing in wood paddles, because it is artistic, beautiful, and honest and performs like no other material.
The most important part of propulsion is the blade shape and how water interacts with it. Every part of the blade has been scrutinized. There should be as little slippage as possible. There should be a slight spring and flex that makes it alive and work for you. It should set up a bounce that works together with you.
Often when you’re in a zone, you can feel the blade as it sets up a resonance. It’s a wonderful feeling. When a paddle feels like it has no life. We simply call it, “A dead paddle.” Everybody has a favorite paddle and occasionally a dead paddle. It’s like everything else in life. We choose to live life the way we make our paddles.
Paddles for All Skill Levels
Beginners and veterans alike love our custom paddles. Most standard paddles just have a hard edge that eventually chips. Our paddles include edges which are specially designed with a semi-soft edge made of polyurethane mixed with other chemicals, giving it a hard yet soft surface that seldom chips. These paddles are so beautiful that some people just want to hang them on their wall and not even use them!
