Nanook Greenland paddle Kids
The Nanook Kids is based on the same shape as the standard Nanook but has a thinner loom and narrower blades, suitable for smaller hands.
East Pole Paddles are made in Estonia. Sea Kayak Oban has taken the worry out of importing goods from Europe post Brexit; however this is an expensive process and the price shown includes, the shipping from Estonia, VAT, import duties, currency conversion fees, handling fees. A direct comparison to the East Pole Paddles website does not begin to reflect the total price to the customer for importing directly. We have priced these items as competitively as we can – please don’t ask for any discount, we have done the best we can to support the UK Greenland paddler.
The Nanook is based on the shape and size of a traditional West-Greenland paddle. It has mild “shoulders” on transition from loom (shaft) to the blade. Blade tips are round and as wide as the blade. Out standard material is western red cedar (Thuja plicata) – a lightweight and beautiful wood, which generally does not rot. Pine strips inset into the loom is our “trade-mark” which adds stiffness and colour. The Nanook is finished with at least 8 layers of tungoil. East Pole believe a wooden paddle treated with oil feels very natural and warm in your hands; good grip is guaranteed, even when the paddle is wet. Using an EastPole Greenland paddle is gentle on your muscles and joints which decreases fatigue.
