Here at Garage Grown Gear we featured Shearwater Webbed Paddles in our list of the Top 10 Companies Making Truly Novel Outdoor Gear. Here’s an excerpt from that post:

“These compact, collapsible paddles were inspired by the webbed feet of swimming birds. Weighing between 1 and 2 pounds, Shearwater Webbed Paddles offers both a canoe and kayak paddle,Shearwater Color as well as a version that can convert between the two sports and also works for stand-up paddle boarding. They also function great as easy-to-stow backup paddles for motorized boats. Founder Chad Townsend is as an environmental planner for the town of Banff in Canada, and runs Shearwater as a creative outlet. ‘I like the idea of being able to build them custom for different people’s height and need,’ he said.”

Check out how well the paddles pack down …

  1. I am intrigued and would like to see how they work. I’m from Calgary and like to support local businesses as well since Chris is from Banff.

  2. Very convenient (and colorful) way to carry your paddle!

  3. Wow – these are so cool. Wa more efficient for lake paddling than regular paddles. Would love to test them out on my overnight paddles across Leigh Lake to my favorite campsite.

    These look killer! Can’t wait to try one out on Twin Lakes in the Big Hole of Montana!

    Totally cool! I love products inspired by nature!

  7. These look really cool.

  8. I was fortunate enough to test out the paddle on a early morning float on the Bow through Banff with Chad. Happy to help spread the word that they are light and easy to use!
