Here's a link to a great article on paddle making entitled, "The Art of Making a Splash" recently posted on MetroMode Media. It features fellow paddle maker, Kent Lund of Grand Rapids Paddle Company. Kent's fantastic work has been featured on the blog before and if interested, you can read some of those earlier posts by clicking here.
I'm an avid canoeist and general "outdoorsy type" guy with a bit of an artistic side. Recently started this hobby of making custom canoe paddles after my disappointing experience with most commercial brands. This site documents various styles of single blade canoe paddles I've made or researched as well as other canoe related info I've stumbled across on my internet wanderings. Hope you enjoy your visit.
