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.

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