I'm thinking of making a free style paddle and looking for some guidance on where to look for dimensions. I did a search for free style paddles and found several images but no specifications. In their book "Canoe Paddles", Warren and Gidmark give detailed specs. for a Sugar Island paddle that looks pretty close. The first paddle I made actually was a Sugar Island, but I went over the top a bit with hardwood and it is way to heavy. Any suggestions ?

No dimensions- if you are located in the Mpls St Paul area you would be welcome to inspect several Good freestyle paddles. Send an e mail to dancooke@cookecustomsewing.com to set up a viewing of paddles.

Dan. I was hoping you would reply. Are you having your Thursday evening paddle at Circle Pines any time in the near future ? If so I'll come for that and could look at a paddle or two then.

Thanks Dan. I will try to be there. I'll send you an email next week to confirm. As I recall, you are usually doing some instruction on freestyle paddling so I assume you will have a good paddle or two.
