Re: Greenland stroke and paddle design

The greenland paddles that I use that have a hard finish on them don't bother my hands, but the greenaland paddles that are finished in boiled linseed oil would start to make my hands raw. I eliminated this problem by applying a hard finish to the areas that effected my hands.

If you want a pair of waterproof gloves that will grip a paddle well, try Glacier Gloves. There awesome.
