We often get asked the question "What is a Storm Paddle?"or the question "What is the Sliding Stroke"?
So we posted  a video below from our YouTube Channel that answers both questions quite well. Check it out, head right on over to our YouTube Channel to check our other videos and please Subscribe to our YouTube Channel, Like and Comment.

Just posted a short video link below, showing some random photos of our paddles as well as our two Shop Managers, Plaid and Sandpaper
We decided to start building a YouTube channel and this helps us kick it off. Hoping to do 2 or 3 videos a month from now on.

   Here is our new XL version of our best selling 2 piece Greenland Paddles.

Our standard loom and ferrule system for 9 years now has been with a 10 inch long carbon fiber ferrule with a 1.25 inch diameter and a somewhat rough finish to the touch. 

The new oversized ferrules are 1.5 inches in diameter and are 14 inches in length, allowing for a longer overall paddle of up to 235 cm. The finish on the new ferrules is also far superior to what we were using in the past and we are very excited to be adding this new option. These are especially suited to paddlers with larger hands (size large to XL and up glove size for example and for those wanting an incredibly strong paddle.

We have also upgraded our standard size ferrules as well, going to a 14 inch length with the better finish as well as better thickness tolerances, added strength and reliability.

As I update this in October 2018, this has already ben by far our best year in term of the number of sales for our 2 piece Greenland paddles!

2-piece Greenland Paddles. 

This is now our #1 best selling paddle and we are shipping these all over the world.
We have just now switched over to our new and improved ferrules. Better tolerances, slight increase in outside diameter resulting in a stronger paddle along with a vastly improved finish and feel to the carbon fiber ferrules. We can also now build these two piece paddles to a length of right around 235 cm, about 7 or 8 cm bit longer than before.
