Nanook means polar bear in greenlandic
We have 3 sizes (180, 190 and 200cm) of greenland paddles for kids. All these four paddles are similar to our greenland paddle NANOOK, only decreased proportionally. It means they have thinner loom and narrower blades, suitable for smaller hands.
NANOOK paddle is based on the shape and size of a traditional west-greenland paddle. It has mild “shoulders” on transition from loom (shaft) to blades. Blade tips are round and as wide as the blade. Out standard material is western red cedar (Thuja plicata) – lightweight and beautiful wood, which generally does not rot. Pine strips on the loom is our “trade-mark” which adds stiffness to our paddles. As a finish, we oil the paddles with tungoil. Wooden paddle treated with oil feels very natural and warm in your hands. Good grip is guaranteed, even when the paddle is wet.
Using our greenland paddle is gentle to your muscles and joints and decreases fatique. It is silent and you put less effort in each stroke. Bracing and rolling are easier than you ever thought they could be.

NOTICE: Every piece of wood is different. They come with different density, weight and colour. Weight of the standard paddle made of western red cedar is normally between 350 and 650 gram. Also the colour of oiled paddles varies from very light red to very dark brown. So in matter of colour, photos of the paddle are more or less illustrative.
