Welcome to NorthPoint Paddles!

Welcome to NorthPoint Paddles!
- Putting the Beauty of Wood in the Hands of Kayakers -

NorthPoint Paddles is a family-run business in the Pacific Northwest with a passion for kayakers everywhere to experience the special benefits of paddling with a Greenland-style paddle. The blade design allows for less stress on your shoulders & elbows without sacrificing speed. Everyone, beginners & experts alike, appreciates being able to paddle longer with less fatigue. We believe whether you are paddling out on a lake, going down an easy flowing river or creek, heading out on a sea kayaking adventure or trying out your kayak roll, you will appreciate paddling with a Greenland paddle. Check out Our Paddles!


We Had an Amazing Time at Canoecopia 2018!

It starts out with months of preparation…handcrafting & finishing paddles to sell, making travel arrangements, ordering supplies, organizing shipments, and so on.

And then the day comes…the day when we arrive at our booth at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, WI to find everything waiting for us…  

NorthPoint Paddles Booth - Set up and Ready

…and then several hours later...voila! we are ready. It is what we have worked so hard for; it is what we have been looking forward to ever since last year…
it is…


NorthPoint Paddles Booth During the Show

There is nothing like it…over 20,000 people milling through the Exhibition Hall checking out the latest paddlesports & camping equipment, as well as attending workshops, demos, & talks on a whole variety of outdoor topics. It's a great way to beat cabin fever and get geared up for Spring. Being able to participate at Canoecopia is a definite highlight for us.


And this year was no exception! Once again we were blown away. We made a point of bringing more paddles this year than we brought last year when we sold out and to our delight…we just about sold out again – only 3 paddles left at the end of the show. We sold more paddles than ever before! A BIG THANK YOU to all of our customers! We feel truly blessed.

We are also very grateful to Darren Bush of Rutabaga and to all of the Canoecopia staff – they put on one awesome show! Thank you for all of your hard work!!! It was an amazing time!!!

Already looking forward to Canoecopia 2019!

Keep on Paddling,
Randy, Brita, Norm, & Beth
