We handbuild west greenland style paddles for our own use and for customers. Length, diameters, volume, weight and surface could vary. Ours is usually made out of fir, hollow for less weight and still maintaining some volume for boyancy. Making one takes 2-5 days. 5 days is for a good smooth finish.
Please find a sample of our paddles on the video below. One of them was paddled in autumn ice when looking for a jetty walkway that had been disappeared with the storms. Another is a shorter stormpaddle.
