Our paddles are built from Douglas Fir, Cedar, carbon fiber, fiberglass and epoxy. We use zero VOC epoxy made by "entropy resins" that is UV stable and clear. Each paddle consists of a carbon reinforced paddle shaft within a fiberglass sleeve, a carbon paddle blade with closed cell foam core and ABS edges and a composite hardwood handle.

The natural flex of wood reduces fatigue on arms and shoulders. The addition of carbon fiber and ABS edges make our paddles extremley strong and resistant to wear. The natural beauty of your paddle will last for years and can be maintained by sealing gashes that make it through the fiberglass resin exterior with epoxy, clear paint or fingernail polish. Paddle Tree also offers repair and refinishing at reduced rates to original purchasers of our product line.
