Kayak rolling session, Greenland style, in our backyard pool next to the paddle building woodshop. Very rusty right now with sloppy technique. Only second rolling session this year so far. No kayaking last year due to a bad elbow injury. The technique should come back quickly though, always does. You'll see several more rolling videos in the coming weeks. Gear used includes: Tahe Greenland sea kayak, designed by Johan Wirsen, now of Rebel Kayaks. Joe O' Greenland Paddles, designed and built by....me. Brooks Tuilik from British Columbia Canada. Level Six paddling shorts and short sleeve top. Brooks Paddling boots. Fuji XP 140 Camera

Short video on some general guidelines we use when sizing people for a new custom Greenland Paddle. Remember, these are just guidelines. We often adjust the numbers a bit after talking/ emailing back and forth with people in order to fine tune the specs for the individual customer. Over the years, we have now built well over 1500 Greenland Paddles and have shipped all over the world.

I was just asked about doing a video on the Cutting Boards we make. Well, I'd just finished up a new one a couple days earlier. So for now, here is the one I just finished along with photos of several others after I show and talk about this latest one to come out of our home based woodshop. If you want me to make a video showing the actual process of making it, post your comments down below and I can do another one for a new video.

Our booth at the 5th annual Bizarre Bazaar in Thunder Bay Ontario with a variety of our handcrafted canoe paddles, kayak paddles and our other woodshop creations. Some footage was lost or not saved properly but here is a quick video showing our booth and some of our products. Sales were good and we had a great time showing our products, selling some of our existing stock and taking custom orders for more paddles for our local customers. We can hardly wait to do it again next year for year 6. Please like and Subscribe, see you again soon.
