Bamboo makes a better paddle. Built tough for the rivers of the Rocky Mountains but lightweight enough for a long day of touring or surfing, our beautifully hand-sanded bamboo shaft lets you paddle longer. Bamboo's long fibers and natural medium/stiff flex allow you to feel the reaction of the water. This makes braces, draws and other strokes feel like second nature while putting less stress on your body.  Blades are available in 2 sizes and 3 colors of fiberglass and carbon fiber. Choose a T or palm grip with any length shaft to perfecty fit you.

SUP = $219 | Canoe = $184
