...with design you won't find anywhere else​.

Our shaft finger grips are comfortable, functional, and beautiful -- standard on every paddle and only with a Deppen Paddle.

You'll never want to hold a paddle without them again.

Carbon Fiber Core

The Carbon Fiber Core

A carbon-fiber core provides lightweight strength... 

We blend the benefits of wood with carbon fiber to create a paddle with the benefits of wood, all while being stronger and lighter with a carbon fiber core.

...without sacrificing the beauty of wood.

Our carbon-fiber core (standard in all paddles) allows for our SUP, kayak, and canoe paddle options to stay strong and light.

From Our Customers

Just some of our many satisfied paddlers!

"There is nothing more beautiful or more functional than a SUP paddle made by Tim Deppen. Absolute work of art and engineering."

- John H., Seneca, SC

"It is just so beautiful! So so so beautiful! It exceeds my expectations! I am in love! The craftsmanship, the detail, the wood combination & striking contrast, it is so light!"

- Kristy E.

The quality, purity, and flow of your design for my canoe paddle is beyond anything I could have imagined. Can't be more pleased with the results. And you were correct in advising to keep the finger grips. Love the control they provide on the tough critical strokes. Thank you for an amazing artisticly styled blade with incredible functionality."

- Albert, New Braunfels, TX

"After years in the paddleboard industry I have been fortunate to try many different paddles, both composite and wood. After testing Tim's paddles I was amazed at the comfort, design, and striking beauty. Deppen Paddles has truly created the perfect blend of classic looks and modern design.​"

- David Rose, Owner of Paddleboard Orlando

"The paddle is not only the most beautiful I have seen so far, it also feels just perfect - I'm stoked about simply every detail: catch, balance, stiffness, handle, seperation, blade size, diameter of the shaft and that incredible carved grip section! "

- Robin, Switzerland
