Sanborn Canoe Co.

Sanborn Canoe Co. Sanborn Canoe Co. is a light-weight wooden canoe & kayak paddle company nestled in the beautiful bluff country along the banks of the Mississippi River in Winona, Minnesota. It was started early in 2009 by Todd Randall, John, Zak & Greg Fellman, Mark & Michael Boysen and Kevin Kreisel to have a degree of say in the equipment we would use on our backcountry canoe trips. Canoeing and camping in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in Northern Minnesota is at the heart of our group, and for some of us it goes back in our families to the early days of the last century - most of us have been on canoe trips since we were babies.

Their Philosophy:
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.
