Paddles. Let's talk about paddles.
As many of you know, I have built a lot of kayak and canoe paddles over the years. Everything from straight shaft canoe paddles, bent shaft canoe paddles, SUP paddles, 1 and 2 piece Greenland Paddles etc. But right now, we are going to talk about my three favourite paddles that I did NOT make.
The paddles I talk about in the video are a Zaveral carbon fiber bent shaft canoe paddles, the one I used in my solo Cross Canada canoe trip in 2004. Zaveral was my paddle sponsor back before I ever even made my first paddle.
Another paddle I talk about it my Epic Mid Wing paddle by Epic Kayaks. I do mainly kayak with Greenland paddles only now but hey, I do still like to go out and "Wing it" now and then as well. Nice to have variety afterall.
The thrid paddle on the list is the very first Greenland paddle I ever really tried out. This was back in 2001 and it was a paddle my Dad had built. And that paddle, which he then gave to me after I quickly got hooked on them, that is the paddle that later led to me building them myself starting in 2005 and I've never looked back. I still have that paddle and you will see it in the video.
This video is on my favourite 3 paddles that I DID NOT make myself. I talk about each one and why they are important to me and what these paddles mean to me and why. Below the video, there will be links to a couple of the paddles as well as to the Clipper canoe mentioned in part of the video.
