Penobscot beavertail paddle


This traditional beavertail paddle needs little introduction. It is an absolute classic originating with the Penobscot and Passamaquoddy from southeast Canada. The relatively large blade with the wide tip makes it the perfect paddle for shorter trips. The paddle pulls smoothly through the water while the wider blade gives good impact resistance.

The beavertail paddle is made up of a cherry, ash, cedar and ayous laminate. That guarantees a solid and relatively light combination. The pear-shaped oiled grip gives the Penobscot a pleasant and smooth feel. The beavertail paddle is available with a semi-gloss varnished or an oiled finish.

Which size?

There are many tricks to determine the ideal length of your paddle. Or more correctly, the length of the shaft. The following method is simple and reasonably accurate: Sit straight on a chair and measure the distance between the seat and your eyes and add ± 7 cm. that’s all there is to it.
