A "Premier" Custom Badger Paddle Order

This past summer, Badger Paddles had the opportunity to work personally with the Premier of Ontario, Mr. Dalton McGuinty.

This custom ordered paddle (see top photo) was a special gift to be signed by the Premier before returning to Badger for finishing. The end result was really spectacular and the lucky recipient of this paddle now has a true collector's item.

But the story doesn't end there...

Just this past week, we were surprised to find a personal letter in our mail box from the desk of the Premier reading:

Dear Mike,
Thanks so much for all your help with the paddle you produced so quickly for me. It is gorgeous.
The guy I gave it to loves it. Which is all that counts.
Very Best Wishes,

We, at Badger Paddles, were honored by this opportunity and recognition and are truly pleased to find the intended recipient was happy with the result. We really dug the project too!

Thanks to all the staff at the Premier's office that were so helpful in making this project happen so smoothly and on such a short time-line, as well as Ms. T. Sobers and Mr. McGuinty - himself - of course!

Paddling for kids just got more fun!!!

Badger Paddles loves to get kids (and cubs) excited about paddling and the outdoors ... That is why we now offer our cub paddles in different COLOURS!


Our cub colour stains are water-based, non-toxic and fun!

Blue, Green, Pink, Purple, Turquoise and other variations available. Each colour and paddle will vary due the properties of stain and the natural variations in wood. Just like kids - No two alike!

Kids ‘n Cubs have a long reach to the water from a canoe so our paddle sizes come in 46” and 48” lengths for a more comfortable and positive paddling experience.

Our cub blades are approx.5” at the widest point and 22” from the end of the blade to it’s neck.

Our Cub Paddles and Cub Water Colours are Varnished. Note: Oiled is available in “Natural” only.
