Storm Paddle info.
The storm paddle is a shorter version of a standard Greenland paddle but with a shorter loom. This shape offers significantly less resistance to wind since nearly three quarters of the paddle disappears into the water on each stoke. This requires the development of the specialized slide-stroke where the hands slide up and down the non-paddled blade with each stroke.
Storm paddles are made from dimensions used to make a full sized paddle and then the loom length reduced to 8 inches.
The main body of the blade is Western Red Cedar which is lighter but less strong.
The darker hardwood edge armour are generally made from Walnut or mahogany.
The lighter hardwood edge armour are generally made from Ash
Despite its name Western Red Cedar varies in colour from dark through to almost white.
In all case the timber is chosen from our available stock to have an appealing appearance.
