Use it. Abuse it. Varnish it.
Your stan up paddle, kayak paddle or canoe paddle won’t need any special care except to protect it from the elements between sessions. However, If the finish of the paddle does become scratched or worn through, you can repair it.
Rub the area with a fine grit sand paper (220 grit is perfect…) until it is smooth and dull. Apply two or three thin coats exterior marine grade polyurethane.
Rub lightly with the fine abrasive between coats for a better finish. When the last coat is dry you are ready for action. If the wood is damaged, sand the area aggressively with 100 or 120 grit sandpaper to smooth the wood and remove the discoloration. Treat the sanded area with 3 or 4 coats of polyurethane as described above. If the job is more than you can handle, we’ll be glad to repair it for you for a small charge.
If you have any additional questions, call or email and we’ll help you out!
