    Possible to Fashion a Greenland Paddle?

    Possible to fashion a sort of Greenland paddle by trimming blades of a Euro paddle down? Just wondering.

    I guess you could try but I think you would end up with very little surface area on the blades. It would probably make for a pretty shitty paddle.

    I think there is more to it than just cutting down a regular paddle the blade has to be long and thin

    but you can just google shape & sizing, a buddy made one from a piece of wood he beachcombed
