Werner Furrer, Sr. started the company today known as Werner Paddles® by constructing a rudimentary paddle years ago out of a wooden curtain rod and a piece of plywood. From there, he and his active family became interested in making kayaks and eventually made their own kayaks, paddles, foot braces, spray skirts, helmets, and even their own life jackets!
As the children grew, the focus turned to paddles and is still the focus today. The company's line of paddles includes Kayak, Canoe and Raft paddles and each offers the consumer a high-quality advanced design featuring a great fit, in turn leading to the ultimate paddle performance.
