As the world's largest manufacturer of quality canoe, kayak and stand-up paddles, we remain a privately held company in Northwestern Wisconsin, staffed by paddling enthusiasts.  This translates into countless hours spent designing, prototyping, testing and perfecting each of our paddles.  When that's done, we go back and look at ways to build them even better, lighter, stiffer, smarter more durable and more beautiful.
