Today, our goal of achieving Ultimate Paddle Performance is what we at Werner live for. We are determined to deliver the best possible experience to you on the water through our design and craftsmanship. We handcraft our paddles in the Pacific Northwest, catering to all major paddling segments including sea kayaking, recreational, whitewater, fishing, canoeing, and rafting. Our headquarters located in Monroe, WA provides us with plenty of opportunity to test our products right in our own backyard. From the vast Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands to mountainous rivers and stunning lakes, we are happy to call this our home.
Werner Paddles takes an engineering and technology approach to design. Function, ergonomics, durability, and beauty are key requirements throughout the paddle development process. We take pride in handcrafting quality products in the U.S., minimizing waste, taking care of our people, and giving back to the local community. Our products are manufactured to the highest standards, maintaining our reputation as the go-to for reliability in the paddle sports industry. We strive to build our paddles responsibly and to reduce our impact to the environment wherever we can.
Our team bringing the award-winning designs to life are a key component to our success. We are paddlers and adventurers with decades of industry experience. We are dedicated craftsmen and women who bring passion, commitment, and pride to work every single day.
We hope to see you on the water soon.

We believe Advanced Designs and Fit are the key ingredients of a Werner Paddle. As paddlers of all levels of experience hit the water, we're all after the same thing; fun, and as little fatigue as possible. It starts with a great fit and with that more comfort and reduced fatigue, making way for a better physical performance on the water. Next we ensure paddle performance; at the core of our designs are light swing weight, smooth strokes and balance. Then, across our entire range of paddles, for every discipline and performance level, you'll find specific advanced design features that will improve your time spent on the water. On behalf of the folks at Werner Paddles, we make a promise that our pride and quality workmanship will be evident every time you pick up our paddle. You can see it in our unsurpassed attention to quality and feel it with every paddle stroke.
“If you’re not paddling a Werner you’re not paddling."
"...It occurred to me last night that so many of the best moments of my life occurred because of the Werner Paddles I have owned over the years. I live in Florida, so I use my paddles all the time. I've traveled internationally with them. I will loan my kayaks, but never my paddle."
