The paddles pictured are used for white water and flat water paddling. They are made from durable hardwoods such as ash, walnut, purple heart, and blood wood. Other woods can be used per request. All white water paddles are finished with a high-gloss epoxy clear coat, with fiberglass on the blades, and a kevlar tip for additional protection against rocks and sand.
Maintenance is required with any wooden paddle. Small scratches can be filled with super glue or epoxy. For extensive scratching and abrasion, the paddle can also be refinished.
