“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there someday.” ~A.A. Milne

Either you respond to that statement by writing it off as something lazy folks say, or by embracing the gentle nudge to slow down and enjoy the simple, quiet things life can offer. Our Wapasha model is one of those simple things. With the elegant design of the traditional beavertail canoe paddle, but made with lightweight, easy on the arms cedar, it is most appropriately enjoyed on a still, glassy lake when you have nowhere to be, but everything to enjoy all around you.

Like all Sanborn paddles, the Wapasha features the best grip on the market. Years of care and refinement have delivered a paddle that feels great in the hand even after a long day of paddling, and is easy to grasp even in the trickiest conditions. Our paddles are also normally delivered with the grip unfinished. Ultimately this means you can finish the grip how you prefer; we recommend an oil finish, as it's extremely smooth, comfortable even after a full day of paddling, and it is simple and easy to maintain. It’s a bit more effort, but it’s well worth it. For an nominal fee, we can pre-oil the grip for you prior to shipping, but you'll still want to maintain the grip oil over its life.

Wapasha Paddle
5 Stars

My recently acquired Wapasha does everything any of my large collection of canoe paddles do but with more ease and beauty. Light in the hands, easy to switch sides when desired and a pleasure to use for braces, sweeps, J's and back paddling. It is now my very favorite and next Spring I'll be selling most of the rest of my collection. Thanks for your speedy delivery as it has given me the use of it until the water freezes.
