I am glad to do repair work or refinishings on any of my or Keith Backlund’s paddles (only).

All repairs are warranted for life for defects in materials or workmanship.

It usually takes around two weeks for the work to get done.  Here are  some repair prices so you can have an idea what your repair might cost:

  • Re-finish  $25-$35
  • Full refurbish  (new tips/veneers/glass/finish)
    • $153 (kayak)   $94(canoe or raft)
  • De-glass/re-glass one blade surface  $10
  • Length or feather alteration and refinish  $50-70

If you need a wood paddle repaired that’s not one of mine or Keith’s you might try Mark Orinick in West Virginia at 304 282 1679. Mark also makes quality bent shaft paddles.
