We sell direct to USA, Canada and worldwide where we do not have a dealer presence. We have shipped paddles to every continent except Antartica. You will see our paddles in Hong Kong, South Africa, the United Kingdom, Dubai, Japan and Korea.
By selling online and shipping directly from our factory in Burlington, Ontario we provide the best prices and best service to our customers. Some competing paddles are bought and sold three times before reaching the end consumer - manufacturer to distributor to dealer and finally, paddler. Each level adds their level of profit margin. In order to make this work, the manufacturer's main concerns is low cost. It's the only way they can stay in business. To keep costs low, corners are cut, workers are exploited, cheap materials are used and quality control is almost non-existent.
The above companies are the only ones that we know of who make IDBF certified dragon boat paddles in Canada and the USA. Please do not be fooled by companies who import paddles and stamp "Canada" on them. Ask them directly where the paddles are made before assuming they are made in Canada.
