Welcome fellow paddlers...

Looks like the paddling season is coming to a close here in Canada. Hope everyone has had a safe paddling season. Remember to wear your PFD...not sit on it!

...aren't the only paddlers who use Greenland kayak paddles. Nope...recreation & touring kayakers use them also. They are lightweight, float, and warm to the touch. Our full paddles weigh between 21 - 32 oz. depending on the density of the wood and which style you choose.

Adanac Paddle
[ Shouldered paddle - with quilted maple tips ]

Greenland paddles are becoming more popular every year for kayak touring because they are efficient over long distances and windy conditions and gentle on the wrists, forearms and shoulders. You will be able to paddle longer with less fatigue. Advanced paddlers love the variety of extended paddle positions possible with this thousand-year-old Inuit design. Breast cancer survivors appreciate the 'body sense' of our paddles.

We carve only CUSTOM ORDERS! No MASS PRODUCTION. Length will be determined by your measurements.

Tired of pulling a paddle off the rack and not having it fit? Well let Adanac Paddles carve you a paddle to your dimensions, so you have the best fit of any paddle you have ever owned. We pride ourselves on fitting a paddle to YOU, not you fitting a paddle.
