Greenland Paddles by George

 

You may question why would anyone want to try paddling a kayak with a Greenland paddle?  That’s what I thought too when I first saw people paddling a kayak using a skinny piece of wood…

The short answer is the shape of a Greenland paddle requires less force to push or pull the paddle through the water.  This leads to greater stroke efficiency and allows the paddler to travel further while expending less energy.

Deep Bay kayaking is now an official Rockpool and Valley Kayak Reseller! 

The message below is from Pat Jones, she is the President of PIKA Kayak Club based in Langley.

So excited for you in your new adventure representing Valley and Rockpool!

I paddled from Whytecliff park to Cape Roger Curtis on Bowen Island and back with my friend Niko, who was giving his Rockpool Taran 16 it’s maiden voyage. He could not say enough good things about it…easy turning, rolling etc.
