Our custom wood paddles are the weapon of choice for pro kayakers such as Helen Wilson, Mark Tozer and of course Joe O'Blenis to name just to name a few.
We use the finest woods available, western red cedar from Vancouver Island, specially selected by our own sawyer and we take pride in each and every custom paddle that we create.
Other select woods are sometimes added in as well for contrast by special request.
