Ergonomic Gullwing Paddles Will Amaze You!
Some of the world’s best ideas started with a simple curiousity about potential improvement to an everyday activity… in this case, it started when kayaking enthusiast, Art Carlow asked himself:
“Why dig, when you can glide?”
Everybody’s Doing It!
Kayaking ranks in the top ten adventure activities for American baby boomers across the country. In the last ten years, kayaking has grown two-fold, into almost 8 million participants who enjoy the serene experience kayaking offers.
Perhaps it’s the opportunity to commune with nature that’s responsible for the sport’s popularity, or maybe it’s just that kayaking is one of the least financially taxing water sports to introduce, and acclimate, oneself to… but, whatever your reason for loving it, hold on to your harness because you’re about to love it more than you ever imagined possible…
Gullwing Paddle or Magic Wand?
Proudly made in the USA, Gullwing Paddles were created in response to Carlow’s refusal to give up paddling while suffering from a back condition. Carlow’s design, which was awarded the gracefully appropriate name of Gullwing Paddles, allowed Carlow to enjoy endless hours of paddling without any added strain or pain.
Testimonial from MarineFuel.com Product Research Team: “I paddled for 2 miles against the tide to test out the Gullwing. This is by far the easiest paddle I have used, and it totally eliminated the soreness I typically get in my shoulders while kayaking. The OTHER best part about the gullwing paddle, is when you want to lay it down, it does not roll off the boat! Great Product; its like walking on water only different.”
What Makes Gullwing Paddles Different?
When working out the design, Carlow took his time to ensure the finished product would have all the features he wanted in a paddle, including a lightweight ergonomic design with an improved grip.
Gullwing Paddles feature a user-friendly powder-coated aluminum alloy curved bow handle with nylon/fiberglass blades that are completely removable for ease of storage and replacement. Additional Gullwing features include:
- Front and back reflective safety tape
- Asymmetrical angle set curved blades produce an increase in speed with a straighter glide
- Contoured ergonomic handle offers drip prevention and keeps the Gullwing from rolling off the kayak
- Reversing the direction of the paddle 180° allows for direction change or stopping
- Available in a 215 or 230cm version
