WOOD WORKING + ERGONOMICS

Inspired by ancient Inuit peoples, this paddle fuses their traditional forms with advanced machining. The Inuits could not ignore nature's might with artificial technology. The result? A kayak paddle that makes the journey bearable.

Spreading Out Surface Area

Both these paddles have similar surface area. Inuitive allows you to fully submerge the blade into the water at a lower angle as useable paddle area is spread over the shaft. Traditional paddles require you to lift at higher angles. Less work for you = conserved energy.

Developing the sections of the paddle to loft across and create a 3D Form for CNC Machining of Red Western Cedar. Aknowledging this wood's highly oily material properties makes it fitting for water exposure.
