Backwater Paddles

Backwater Paddle Company was spawned after a trip up the Little Econlockhatchee River in Central Florida.

Ed Halm, a retired US Navy survival instructor, master naturalist and kayak eco-guide, encountered some paddling problems, identified potential solutions and Backwater Paddles was soon in business.

Shortly after … the paddling industry received its first innovative, patented blade design in decades.

The legendary Predator and Piranha Kayak Fishing Hand Paddles had evolved.
