WOOD PADDLES

Finely crafted sea paddles now available in Prince George. Wood paddles offer a natural flex and softness that is easy on the body and hands; smooth profile allows for a quiet paddle.
Paddles are hand crafted by Bending Branches, Wisconsin. All BB paddle tips have a “Rockgaurd” protection; a technology derived from the same material as inline skates. This integrity of the paddle seals against moisture and impacts, to the most vulnerable area – tip and edges. Kayak paddles come with composite ferrule system that will not corrode or seize up.

BB have many combinations of straight/ergonomic shafts, straight/bent blades, wood/carbon fiber shafts, T/palm grips just to name a few. Backwater Paddling has a few selected styles and sizes in stock (no tax):

PADDLE LENGTH

The old tradition paddle measurement is the paddle tip reaching up to your chin; however when sitting down in a canoe, your leg length is irrelevent to the paddle length. To find the length for you; sitting on a chair, measure (between legs) the distance from the seat surface to your nose. Use following numbers to convert your measurement to your paddle length. Torso Height - Paddle Length: 26" - 52", 28" - 54", 30" - 56", 32" - 58", 34" - 60", 36" - 62"
