The Bending Branches Sunburst canoe paddle combines years of wood-crafting artistry with state of the art composite technology that makes this our lightest canoe paddle.
The Sunburst’s blade is hand-crafted in Osceola Wisconsin, and is a striking combination of red alder and basswoods. The blade surface is fiberglass-reinforced and the tip is edged with Rockgard® protection to maintain this paddle’s beauty over many years. The Sunburst’s shaft is made of lightweight, yet powerful T-700 carbon that is similar to materials used in the aerospace industry.
