Need help finding handpaddle maker

Last year I bought a set of sweet composite handpaddles from someone on this site. I think his name was kenny and he lived in the southeast (Alabama or Arkansas?). Anyhow I lost one of them yesterday while squirting and was hoping someone on this site has the dudes contact info so he can make me another. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Another option

These are what nearly everyone I know has.
ebay link
Riveraholic Hand Paddles handmade for kayaking kayak - eBay (item 370393506165 end time Jun-15-10 12:28:37 PDT)

or his site
Welcome to

He'll make you the size you want, most of them are about $35 shipped.



Not as pretty as the carbon ones, but cheap & good for spares in your boat!


btw... Aguon... I want mine back!!!

You need to talk to Nick!

He's Islandertek on here. He made me a pair that are not only sweeter than anything I have seen in the stores, but they are STYLE-Y too.

His email is [email protected].

He's also one of the folks running the Vertical Challenge on Eddy Flower. Great Guy. Look him up!

Wow!

Thanks for all of the quick responses. I am going with the originals since I still have one and just need to match it up. Thanks.

SWEET "HOOLIGANZ" Hand Paddles

Kenny in Alabama; his number is 205-802-6237. Kenny is a great guy and I own a pair of his hand paddles that I bought last year, but If you want a more pocket friendly solution made from the same material as your boat give me a call!!

They are SUPER light in comparison and BOMBPROOF!! They also look SEXY!! Check out the link below and I posted some pics!!

https://www.mountainbuzz.com/swap/showproduct.php?product=16057

OH YEAH!! You know the HOOLIGANZ have some home grown hand paddles made right here in Colorful Colorado!!! I'm asking $35 a pair and $10 shipping if you live too far outside the Denver,CO area to meet up.

ENJOY!!

Cheers!!

-Nick

So nick, are the pink ones more expensive???

Bring a pair along on Friday, You just might sell another set!

I'm curious to try on the ones with the padding, seems like a great idea to me!

Kaleb,

I'll bring a set with me tomorrow. What color were you wanting? I have a pink, "Hot" Green, oh and they're Hot, Haa haaa, a yellow pair, and have some made up blanks that can be red, blue, or orange. The pad color is very similar to the logo paint. I try to make SWEET matches!!

The PERFECT spare paddle!! They are very SEXY, and look HELLA cool when you stomp some gnar or drop some waterfalls!! Ha Haaa!! They have been field tested on some steeps in Colorado. To mention a few; all the sections of clear creek, Gore, escalante, boulder creek, Fossil Creek, AZ, and other various creeks here and in the south and east coast!! Get em while I still have them!! I don't know how many more I will be making!!ENJOY!!

Cheers!!

-Nick
