Meet Our Paddle Hiders

We've asked some of our favourite paddling celebrities to hide some paddles during some of their trips into the back-country. You can imagine how happy we were when they agreed. If you do happen upon one of the hidden, handcrafted Badger® Paddle, make sure you save the label. Each of our paddle hiders have signed them as a souvenir.
