Most of them have no experience in paddle making, I guess its a rare hobby and there are not a lot of us out there.
We start with a short discussion on the sizing of the paddle and then get down to work.
|Inside every piece of cedar there is a paddle waiting to be released|
|Keren bought new tools to this class, they are really beautiful and a pleasure to hold in your hand|
|Efrat and Einat had a great time working together , it was difficult to take good photos because all that hair kept getting in my way|
|I have simplified the process quite a bit and now use thick markings in order to reduce the number of lines we have to make , this helps shorten the working time.|
|Usually people are amazed at the end of the day when they hold a beautiful new Greenland paddle in their hands|
On the following Saturday we had a Greenland kayak fun day at our beach,the invitation went out to all kakayers in Israel who have Greenland paddles and want to play with us. Turnout was impressive and we had a lot of fun, races and rolling competitions all in good spirits.
The numbers of paddlers using Greenland paddles is growing here too.
