Eco-Friendly Stand-Up Paddles
This standup paddle doesn’t just look cool; it’s handmade in Hawaii using reclaimed wood, such as koa, mahogany and monkey pod, from construction sites and wood mills on Oahu and the Big Island. “My approach toward protecting the environment is a bit organic,” says Kevin Seid, who founded Everpaddle in 2007. “I want to get people outside, on the water and in nature, so they value what’s around them.” The Haleiwa-based company also makes high-performance standup paddle boards with the option of sustainable materials, such as hemp and bamboo fibers. $249. 371-9686; everpaddle.com.
