This video was shot in our backyard pool by our friend Alan who was attending a sea kayaking symposium we hosted and brought in Helen as guest instructor, the first of 5 visits so far to Thunder Bay for Helen.
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.
Here is an excellent video by my friend Kevin Floyd talking about and demonstrating the Storm Paddle, the Sliding Stroke and the idea behind the Storm Paddle. For those of you unfamilar with the Storm Paddle, this is a must watch video. We have shipped our Storm Paddles worldwide. If you like this video and want to order one, contact me through my website and mention this YouTube post and we can make you a special deal. Link below...

Our good friend Helen Wilson (Greenland Or Bust) doing a Greenland Rolling demo in our backyard pool with one of our "Invisible" Greenland Paddles built 20 feet away in our Joe O' Woodshop where we build our Greenland Paddles that we ship worldwide. www.joeopaddles.com Helen's Website: www.greenlandorbust.org Like this video?

Greenland kayak rolling session at our indoor practice pool. Summer sessions are done in our backyard pool but in the winter, we head over to our "Winter Pool" less than a kilometre away (just over half a mile). Great way to test out our new Greenland Paddles that we build in our home based paddle shop/ woodshop.

If you like our dogs at the very end, say hi to them in the comments. Plaid and Sandpaper....they are the ones REALLY in charge around here. All paddles were built in our woodshop here in Thunder Bay.
