Ordering your custom RivrStyk takes only three easy steps:
Choose a blade design~ This choice is based on what you will use the paddle for- racing, big water cruising, squirt boating, or rodeo etc. You can find your choices here: Blade Shapes . Also decide what length would work best for your needs. This is most often based on your experience with other paddles. I’m available any time for consulting before 9 pm EST. 1-304-329-3310
Decide how heavy duty you want to go- this determines the robustness of the paddle and also the swing weight. You can also pick your Blade Styles to be in line with how heavy duty or light you want your paddle. You can also decide on light or dark veneers- or even specific veneers for the tips. If you want a super beautiful paddle consider the Gift Veneers from Taiki Sugawara. Also consider if you’d like me to include a special saying or your phone number inscribed under the fiberglass on the blade.
3. Mail Your Hand Tracing:
For custom sizing, print off and fill out the Order Form and include it with a tracing of your hand on the back and a deposit for 50% of the paddle’s cost. Then mail it to me at:
3567 N. Preston Hwy.
Albright, WV 26519
A check is fine but if you want, PayPal is also an available payment option. About a week before your paddle is done I will contact you and you can send the balance due and shipping charges. Then I will ship it US Priority Mail. It usually takes 5-8 weeks for me to complete an order from the time I receive the deposit.

Please Note! Because of time constraints due to my kayak design career I am limited to only making 50 RivrStyx in any given year. It can sometimes take 8-10 weeks to get a paddle if I am very busy. If you have a specific “must have” due date- be sure to let me know.
