Welcome to Deppen Paddles.

Deppen Paddles creates stunning wood paddles designed and handcrafted by me, Tim Deppen. Our paddles are individually created with premium wood, fiberglass wrap, and a carbon fiber core. They are lightweight and strong, with our shaft grips, award winning design, and meticulous work all sealed with high-performance coatings. I hope you’ll fall in love with the hard work I put into these paddles.

A Carbon Fiber Core

We make stunning wood paddles. Don’t choose between the beauty and flexibility of wood and the strength and light feel of carbon fiber. With a carbon fiber core, we blend both wood and carbon fiber into every SUP, kayak, or canoe paddle. Through hard work and thoughtful engineering, we strive to be at the forefront of paddle design. Enjoy the best of paddles.

Innovation is Standard

Every part of our paddle is designed and handcrafted with an obsession for perfection. We want our paddles to be the best. That’s why our canoe, kayak, and stand up paddles feature stunning innovations — like our shaft grips and carbon fiber core — and come with standard features like a pro edge guard, 4oz fiberglass wrap, and a dihedral blade. See our Sup Paddles

Functional Art

Why don’t we have our logo plastered all over the blade face? We treat each paddle as a piece of fine art. Not only do we want our canoe, kayak, and SUP paddles to uphold the highest standards in strength and design, but we also want them look stunning.
