Our fine, handcrafted, carbon-fiber-cored SUP, canoe, and kayak paddles are designed and built by lifelong-woodworker Tim Deppen.
Welcome to Deppen Paddles.
Our wooden paddles are crafted with a carbon-fiber core, a fiber glass wrap, and hand-selected woods. With our shaft finger grips, award-winning design, and passion for premium paddles, you'll fall in love with a Deppen Paddle.
It takes dedication and passion to meld beauty and functionality. Tim Deppen does just that by treating each handcrafted wood paddle as fine art — holding them to the highest standards of paddle design.
