Each of our paddles is handmade from wood by Malama himself.
Wood lasts longer since it doesn't chip as much and can be easily refinished to new condition.
is easier on your joints since it has a slight flex.
Any wood paddle is more beautiful and traditional than a nonwood paddle.
All paddles handles are wrapped with 2 oz fiberglass and the entire paddle has an epoxy undercoat to increase durability (HCRA legal)
