Bending Branches offers the Navigator wooden kayak paddle, their lightweight, T-700 carbon shaft paddle made with red adler and roasted basswood. Not only is it beautiful to look at, but it gives you flex and lightweight ease of movement. You'll notice smoother strokes through the water, and less shoulder and arm fatigue. Bending Branches offers the Rockguard protection for the Navigator wooden kayak paddle, so the edges and tips will be well protected from water damage and breakage. And you'll love that each blade is reinforced with fiberglass to preserve its durability.
