Discover the speed and comfort of tailor-made Greenland wooden kayak paddles
Kayaking is all about feeling connected with nature: whether it’s the lure of the water, waves, reflections, surf, or open spaces – kayaking is a wonderful way to get away from the daily hustle and bustle.
But many people find that kayaking is hard on their body, and think that it’s normal to have sore hands, wrists, backs, and shoulders after a paddle.
Your body won’t be so sore with Greenland wooden kayak paddles
Greenland wooden kayak paddles were invented by the people who also invented kayaks – the Inuits of Greenland. Designed for stealth and speed, the modern Greenland style paddle is just as relevant for modern-day kayakers. That’s because the Greenland style paddle is shaped to make paddling easier and faster.
The shape of the paddle is more efficient and puts less pressure on your body. Plus timber is a joy to paddle with as it’s naturally springy, making it softer and more forgiving on your joints. This is very different to kayaking with metal, carbon fibre or fibreglass paddles, which are hard and unforgiving.
I call the Greenland style paddle experience “comfort paddling”, because you’ll finally have a wonderful, pain-free time out on the water.
Wooden kayak paddles from MaxPaddles are tailor-made for you
I spend many hours in my workshop handcrafting your paddle based on your measurements and your kayak type. That way, you’ll get the most comfortable kayaking experience possible, because the paddle is tailored to suit you perfectly.
MaxPaddles are handcrafted from a solid piece of timber: I use Western Red Cedar, because it’s very light, very strong – and also has a beautiful sheen. You can see what my customers say about their experience with the MaxPaddles Greenland paddle.
Your paddle will feature the MaxPaddles embossing – and as your paddle is a unique, handmade masterpiece, it will feature my signature, and also the unique paddle number.
Shipping is free within New Zealand (I can also ship to Australia and worldwide), and your parcel includes a storage bag, bottle of tung oil, and care instructions.
Greenland kayak paddles let you go further, faster, and provide a real “comfort paddling” experience.
