First class this year

Saturday I had the great pleasure of giving the first paddle making class this year.
Paddle making is a short class, taking typically 9 hours and a class that has been gradually more popular the last 10 years.  Counting last year’s classes reveals that more than 120 people have made their own paddle through one of my classes in 2016! I think that’s a lot of paddles and it warms my heart J

This class consisted of people from Sandefjord Kayak club. Sandefjord is one hour’s drive from here, on the South East coast .


Some had made paddles before, some hadn’t. Some made classic Greenland style all round paddles, some made Aleut paddles, one made a spare paddle and one made a surf paddle, which basically is a short wide Greenland style paddle.


We had a great day together. I can’t complain on either company or food! Thanks a lot, Sandefjord Kayak club. Happy paddling! I’m looking forward to see you again on the water or in the workshop next year!
