Sanborn Canoe Co.
We strive to make the best looking and best performing paddles to ever touch the water. I mean you’re out in God’s great masterpiece why shouldn’t you have good-looking equipment too! That’s why we use beautifully grained western red and white cedar in all of our paddles. We are especially drawn to the richly dark red tones, contrasting them with lighter or more subtle reds to create striking lines of laminated wood. But who cares if they’re as beautiful as a Van Gogh painting if they paddle like one too! That’s right, we use these things. Actually we might be a little offended and insinuate cruel and unusual punishment if one of our paddles were hung on the wall for its entire existence. They’re made to be used and abused.
We handcraft our paddles to minimize stress on your arms and joints on long adventures. We strive to create well-balanced, light-weight and thin bladed paddles. Light-weight yet durable.
We hope every paddle and canoe we create help to make your adventures better.
