Werner Paddles Sponsors Babes with Blades


We are pleased to announce that Werner Paddles is supporting Babes with Blades by donating five Tybee FG paddles, one each, to be awarded to one lucky Babe at each of our five retreats. tybee_fg_right_face_01The Tybee FG is a great spare paddle for expedition or coastal play paddling. Its fiberglass reinforced blades are impact and wear resistant and the shaft is constructed of Werner’s signature carbon material. This makes the Tybee FG lighter than your average paddle as well as durable.


The best part of the paddle award is that the lucky Babe who wins the Tybee FG will given a gift certificate that entitles you to a custom fit paddle.  This means that the length and paddle shaft diameter will be designed to fit you.  For more information on the Tybee FG and Werner Paddles, visit: http://wernerpaddles.com/paddles/touring/high-angle/tybee-fg.  Thank you Werner Paddles for your support of Babes with Blades!

    Hi, I’m really glad to see this offer! I am just now outfitting my new kayak and only have my very heavy rec paddle.
    I spent my paddle money on a Snapdragon neoprene deck/nylon tunnel skirt– very nice!– but then realized I will get really hot paddling in the summer around here!
    I will bring both skirts, but I assume that my rec nylon one will work (I’ve already tried it for size) for our False Cape weekend?

      Yes, the nylon will be fine for False Cape and any other flat water paddling. False Cape can kick up when the wind is coming from the right direction, but just toss both skirts in your car and decide which to wear when we get there. If it’s windy enough to need neoprene there, it’ll be windy enough to cause waves to splash you and you won’t be hot. Looking forward to seeing you there! It’s going to be a great trip. Jay
