Selway Canoe Paddle


Named after the Selway River in Idaho, Fritz designed and handcrafts this blade for Class III rivers to steep creeks, where performance is essential. The Selway is a curved blade design finished with a carbon fiber epoxy power face, dynel tip, edging and sleeve for added strength and durability. Fritz carves each with fine hand tools to achieve a balanced, agile feel and fit then sized to your desired length. The Selway is a time tested blend of performance and art that captures the heritage of whitewater canoeing.
