Solid Citizen laminated wood bent shaft paddleboard paddle
Western red cedar. Light. Strong. Smells fantastic when you work it. Basswood. Creamy. Smooth. Great complement to cedar. Purpleheart edging and trim. Put it all together, add in some 4 ounce fiberglass cloth and epoxy, and you have our workhorse wood bent shaft paddleboard paddle - the Solid Citizen. Available as a kit, a completed custom (see the above picture showing five Solid Citizens), or a build to order paddle, the Solid Citizen looks good, feels good, and works good. Sorry for the bad grammar, but it rolls off the tongue...good!
Perfect day on the Yahara. Paddleboard has a coat of new life and a Solid Citizen is providing direction and maybe even some propulsion.

Solid Citizen in my daughter's capable hands, working through the wildness at the landing just above Dyreson Bridge.
