Greenlandic Paddles

palas groenlandesas artesanales | Nautilus Kayaks

Our Greenlandic paddles have been evolved to improve sea kayaking

With these paddles we will have safer and more effective responses in all maneuvers and skiing.The optimum degree of flexibility of a Greenlandic paddle provides us with a great shock absorber that preserves our muscles and joints.
The Greenlandic paddles have a very comfortable and ergonomic grip, with which we will always have our hands well positioned. We can maintain with them a great cruising speed without great effort.

And what’s more, they’re beautiful – what more could you ask for?

Structural reinforcement tips
All our paddle models incorporate hardwood reinforcement tips attached to the shaft by a beechwood insert and glued with epoxy adhesive.
Brazilian Cedar and Paulownia Woods
We use these woods, taking advantage of the contrast in colors and densities that this combination provides.
The ideal weight
The finished Nautilus paddles weigh between 800 and 950g depending on the densities of the piece and whether or not they have reinforcements of harder woods.
Finished with Tung oil
The standard finish for Nautilus paddles is tung oil due to its excellent properties and ease of maintenance.
Packaging and Shipping
All our paddles are shipped in wooden packaging and with a textile cover. The shipping cost is €20 for mainland Spain and €25 for the Balearic Islands.
