The Details

Repair prices are for one blade only. Every damaged paddle is unique and might require more labor and materials than outlined above.  High quality materials and refined techniques are used for repairs however there is no warranty or guarantee  that your paddle will not break. Use your repaired paddle at your own discretion. 

For efficiency in the shop, paddle repairs are batched together and lead times are approximately four weeks. If you require a quicker turnaround, a rush charge is an additional $20. Repair fees are required to be paid upfront. Payment accepted is cash, check, or zelle bank transfer.
