Brian has been building paddles for over 50 years. He has repaired and refurbished cedar strip canoes, canvas canoes, all-wood boats, and sailing dinghies. Smith Paddle and Canoe began formally in August 2013 in response to the overwhelming number of requests for custom built paddles from voyageur canoe enthusiasts. Today, Brian produces dozens of paddles in his workshop and ships them across Canada and the USA.
