Nanook Greenland Paddle
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.
NANOOK paddle is based on the shape and size of a traditional West-Greenland paddle. It has mild “shoulders” on transition from loom (shaft) to blades. Blade tips are round and as wide as the blade. Out standard material is western red cedar (Thuja plicata) – lightweight and beautiful wood, which generally does not rot. Pine strips on the loom is our “trade-mark” which adds stiffness to our paddles. As a finish, we oil the paddles with tungoil. Wooden paddle treated with oil feels very natural and warm in your hands. Good grip is guaranteed, even when the paddle is wet.
Using our greenland paddle is gentle to your muscles and joints and decreases fatigue. It is silent and you put less effort in each stroke. Bracing and rolling are easier than you ever thought they could be.
