Beginner Carving
a Greenland Style Paddle
Sunday, August 12, 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
 
The Greenland paddle has become popular with recreational paddlers due to its efficiency over long distances or in windy conditions. This Arctic paddle differs from the Euro-style paddle by incorporating a narrower and longer blade. The blade width is 3.5” or less and tapers to a shaft (or "loom") whose length is about the width of the kayaker’s shoulders. This shape reduces the stress on hands, elbows and shoulders while giving smooth and controllable power to the kayaker. Using local softwoods, Rod Tait will show you how to laminate the edges of the paddle with hardwood for extra durability. You will shape your paddle using hand and power tools during the workshop, and complete final sanding and oiling at home. All tools and materials provided.
Fee: $150.00
 
 
Rod Tait is the owner of Orca Canoes and Kayaks Ltd., which designs and builds Orca Boats. He has spent years teaching, designing and building kayaks and producing kayak plans as well. He enjoys sharing his skills and knowledge to help promote and foster the wooden boatbuilding community.
