Greenland Paddle Makers

People with GPs seem to like to make them. Greenland paddlers are special and fun to paddle with. I admire them. Let someone try yours.
Here are some good resources handed on to me and now on to you.

Check out Gnarlydog's posts, images, and videos on different types of GPs and Aleut paddles, technique and how they perform in surf.

Visit for a great explanation of the canted stroke, and much more.
