2 piece Greenland Paddle NANOOK2 aka NANOOK MARLUK
NANOOK2 / 2 piece paddle / split paddle
2 piece Greenland Paddle Nanook2 bases 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.
New Split System…
… is oval carbon reinforced plastic paddle joint for greenland paddles made by Kayak Sport. The ferrule is as short as possible to maintain more natural wooden paddle´s characteristics. Easy to use and maintain. Just push the button and you can split your paddle in 2 same size pieces (220cm paddle has 115cm pieces)
Using our greenland paddle is gentle to your muscles and joints and decreases fatigue. 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 750 and 950 grams but most commonly between 800 and 900 grams. 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.
