Sanborn Canoe Co. has been building and painting small batch canoe paddles in their Winona, Minnesota workshop since 2009. Growing from a garage-based summer hobby after a quick read through a beginners manual, they have swiftly carved out a significant niche within the paddling community.
Almost a mirror image of Sanborn's early-self, Tim Shore is in the thick of his garage-based start up phase making hollow-wood paddle boards in Otsego, Minnesota since 2013.
Dreaming of what the marriage between these two complimentary crafts and stories would look like, we sought out to make it happen. After six months of concepting, developing, and producing a first run, the result is finally here. We are very proud and excited to share this Neighbor Goods collaboration and even more excited to get them in the water.
