Hi, my name is James Herndon.
I own and operate Carolina Custom Canoe Paddles, located in Walterboro, S.C. I have been designing and building paddles for quite some time now and truly enjoy it.
I specialize in canoe and stand up paddle board paddles. Each one is hand crafted by me personally from start to finish. All canoe paddles are made from either soft or exotic hardwoods.
Stand up paddles and canoe paddles can be built to preferred lengths. I usually have various lengths on hand. Seamless lamination, epoxyed and six ounce cloth are put on the blades for strength. The paddles is then coated with a finish that gives a glass like shine.
All paddles are designed to be used. However, some people choose to use them as beautiful art decorations to hang in their home. I also make mini decorative paddles. The choice is yours.
