One of our dogs and Shop Managers in the paddle building shop, Plaid, is having very serious health issues. Yesterday Diane took her to a specialised medical veterinary facility in MN State for treatment as we try to save her life.
Medical bills from this trip alone are expected to be around $5000 USD.
We have marked down prices on all our Greenland paddles as we try to raise cash to help cover Plaid's treatment. If you have been thinking of ordering one of our paddles, there has never been a better time. Click here to order now.
In the post below, there will also be a link for our GoFundMe page for Plaid. Thank you all for taking the time to read this.
We started a GoFundMe Page last night (October 9th) to try to help cover some of Plaid's medical expenses. Plaid is the one on the right, her little sister Sandpaper on the left.
Together, they are our two Shop Managers.
If you do not need a new paddle but still wish to help us try to save Plaid's life, please click the link below. Every little bit helps. We love these dogs to bits!

Here is a sneak peak at 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.
The XL size version ferrules are in stock now, the standard size should arrive shortly.
We are super excited about our newly improved 2 piece Greenland Paddles.
Both styles are selling very well.
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.
