DIY Paddle

Hello paddlers,

I'm currently working om making my own paddle.
Not because there is anything wrong the paddles available in my local kayak store, but just because i thought it would be cool to build one.

so to build something with epoxy and glassfibre/kevlar i first had to make a mold.

After a few layers of glassfibre and kevlar it's starting to look like something

I used a Werner Sidekick for the outline because I think that is a nice paddle.

The shaft is made from cheap aluminum because this is the first paddle I'm building. If this works out good i got a few better options to try. ( titanium, aluminum 7075 or carbon)

let me know what you think

From Holland !

not bad at all.. I'm with DBK. "Werner just might be in trouble." - you appear to do darn good work.
