We currently have a 7-8 week build time on all New Paddle orders.
Our latest design is Uru, a steering paddle by Conan Herbert.
In designing Uru, he took many aspects from the Toroa, which has been the steering paddle of choice for most steerspeople in NZ for many years.
The Toroa was/is a great all condition paddle for racing in NZ, though we always felt as it was slightly small to handle moderate sea conditions and sprint race turns.
We have an extra option for the shaft to be reinforced with a carbon fibre sleeve, this needs to be selected as a separate product in the paddles section ($50 extra)
All Steering blades come with steering grip applied.
Blade: epoxy, carbon fibre, fiberglass, pvc foam, reinforced carbon fibre edge.
Shaft: Laminated timber
