In 1991, Aqua-Bound® was born in Surrey, British Columbia manufacturing paddles for whitewater, touring and recreational kayaking and canoeing. Aqua-Bound quickly became the number one producer of plastic-bladed kayak paddles, as they were the first to introduce gas-assist molded paddle blades to the industry. This technology made durable paddles at lighter weights possible.
In 2008, Bending Branches® LLC purchased Aqua-Bound Technologies from Joe Matuska and his partners, and moved the company to Osceola, WI USA. Aqua-Bound paddles are still built there with the same passion for extraordinary quality and service!
