Testimonials

I tried out my Paea blade in my OC1 for the first time today and I couldn't believe the difference. It is pulling so much more water. I just love it. It's exactly the right size as well. I can't thank you enough Rob.

Jan Blythe

Showing me how to accurately measure a blade to suit my height has made such a difference to my paddling. Could have been the coaching as well - thanks Rob!
