The paddling public has spoken and Werner Paddles has been named as the “Best Paddle” in the first ever, Canoe & Kayak Magazine's Reader's Choice Awards. These awards were created to highlight the innovation and triumphs in the paddlesports industry.

“Werner Paddles is stoked to receive this award from the readers of Canoe & Kayak Magazine. It is such an honor because it is the paddling public, the real users that chose us,” says Jim Miller, Werner Paddles Marketing Manager.

Additionally, all of the top ten paddlesports dealers that were awarded are Werner dealers. “Top quality specialty dealers are the backbone of this industry.

1. Austin Canoe & Kayak (Texas)

3. Appomattox River Co. (Virginia)
4. Rutabaga (Wisconsin)

8. Lincoln Canoe & Kayak (Maine)
9. Nantahala Outdoor Center (North Carolina)
10. Naples Kayak Co. (Florida)

The magazine staff of paddlesport enthusiasts created their list of qualified candidates, then invited subscribers and online readers to vote for their favorite paddling brands, products and people through an online survey. In total, 3,600 Canoe & Kayak readers voted in less than 30 days.

Canoe & Kayak Magazine will publish the Reader's Choice Awards in the December 2010 issue and online at www.canoekayak.com.
