As a paddle builder, I have built a LOT of paddles. This video is on my favourite 3 paddles that I DID NOT make myself. I talk about each one and why they are important to me and what these paddles mean to me and why.
#CanoeFlipChallenge The Canoe Flip challenge. This was initiated by Chris Prouse https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3KjrE9MzHE recently and is a fundraiser for Project Canoe (www.canoe.org) to help get under privileged youth out into canoes and the outdoors in general. Flip your canoe as many times as you can in 60 seconds, or just in some other unique way. Donate a dollar per flip, or whatever amount you like, and then nominated three other YouTubers to take up the challenge as well. www.canoe.org I was nominated by Kevin Outdoors https://www.youtube.com/user/Kakabekakev My three nominations are: Mark from "Mark Paddles" from Alberta Canada.

Vancouver Island British Columbia Canada! Rugged, remote, beautiful. Strong tides and currents, epic west coast surf, strong winds and HIGHLY unpredictable. Cape Scott...the Brooks Peninsula... Seymour Narrows... Twice I have done the sea kayak circumnavigation of British Columbia's Vancouver Island. Roughly 1150 km in length, both past trips resulted in speed records for the fastest sea kayak trip around the island (since been beaten. 2021... I'm going back!

Kayak rolling session, Greenland style, in our backyard pool next to the paddle building woodshop. Very rusty right now with sloppy technique. Only second rolling session this year so far. No kayaking last year due to a bad elbow injury. The technique should come back quickly though, always does. You'll see several more rolling videos in the coming weeks. Gear used includes: Tahe Greenland sea kayak, designed by Johan Wirsen, now of Rebel Kayaks. Joe O' Greenland Paddles, designed and built by....me. Brooks Tuilik from British Columbia Canada. Level Six paddling shorts and short sleeve top. Brooks Paddling boots. Fuji XP 140 Camera

Short video on some general guidelines we use when sizing people for a new custom Greenland Paddle. Remember, these are just guidelines. We often adjust the numbers a bit after talking/ emailing back and forth with people in order to fine tune the specs for the individual customer. Over the years, we have now built well over 1500 Greenland Paddles and have shipped all over the world.

I was just asked about doing a video on the Cutting Boards we make. Well, I'd just finished up a new one a couple days earlier. So for now, here is the one I just finished along with photos of several others after I show and talk about this latest one to come out of our home based woodshop. If you want me to make a video showing the actual process of making it, post your comments down below and I can do another one for a new video.
Greenland kayak rolling session at our indoor practice pool. Summer sessions are done in our backyard pool but in the winter, we head over to our "Winter Pool" less than a kilometre away (just over half a mile). Great way to test out our new Greenland Paddles that we build in our home based paddle shop/ woodshop. Several new videos in the next few days coming up so click the Subscribe button to stay up to date with the new videos and upcoming contests and gear giveaways. Thanks for watching. If you like our dogs at the very end, say hi to them in the comments. Plaid and Sandpaper....they are the ones REALLY in charge around here. All paddles were built in our woodshop here in Thunder Bay.
