She is obviously a happy paddler and clearly illustrates how tough my Rock N’ Roller paddles are. I’ve been making them now for two years and have has nothing but positive comments and no failures. My objective in designing the Rock N’ Roller was to create a beautiful wooden paddle that is light in weight, capable of having the tip smashed against a rocky shore without damage and having the strength to resist the forces capable of causing failure in other cedar paddles.
