Disclaimer: Once you add this item to the cart, checkout and complete the order, our team of paddlers will quickly start working on your order. Here at Bending Branches, we build all of our paddles to order (much like a fast food restaurant), so paddles do not collect dust or become dated. As soon as you place your order, a real person in our Osceola, Wisconsin factory will start preparing your paddle. Our paddles are typically built within a week and ship shortly thereafter. Our shipping windows are slightly longer than most of our loyal paddlers are used to, but we’re doing everything we can to ensure paddles ship timely and perform perfectly. Thank you for your patience and thank you for supporting American manufacturing.

The Sunburst’s blade is hand-crafted in Osceola Wisconsin, and is a striking combination of red alder and basswoods. The blade surface is fiberglass-reinforced and the tip is edged with Rockgard® protection to maintain this paddle’s beauty over many years. The Sunburst’s shaft is made of lightweight, yet powerful T-700 carbon that is similar to materials used in the aerospace industry.

From tip to grip, the Sunburst paddle is designed with the canoe elitist in mind. The Sunburst will provide years of comfortable, worry-free paddling and propel you to places you've only dreamt of.

The Sunburst 11 has an 11° bend in the shaft. The Sunburst 11 is available in lengths ranging from 48 inches to 54 inches (in 2-inch increments).
