Why Should You Consider a Greenland Paddle Made by NorthPoint Paddles? Part 1


QUALITY MATERIALS
Greenland Paddles by NorthPoint Paddles
It is important to us that every component of your paddle is made of high quality materials – after all, we want to be able to provide our customers with a paddle that is worth owning – one that we, ourselves, would want to own. Take for instance, the Western Red Cedar that we use in every model. Our supplier is very particular about the kiln drying process – making every effort to not overheat or speed the process along too quickly - thereby, helping to prevent the wood from warping.


HARDWOODS CHOSEN FOR STRENGTH AND DURABILITY
Your paddle is worth protecting – after all it can be rough out there sometimes. So, with that in mind, we have designed our paddles to have an "armor" of hardwood to give added protection. Every paddle has hardwood tips, and all, but the Rosario, has hardwood edges. We choose hardwoods that are both strong and durable without adding too much to the overall weight of the paddle. Our hardwoods of choice currently include cherry, ash, and maple.
