COVID-19 and O’Brien: In the midst of everything going on, O’Brien Watersports is still up and running. As some of you know, our headquarters are based just outside of Seattle in Snoqualmie, WA and on March 23rd the governor mandated a stay-at-home order. Prior to the announcement, we made the necessary changes so that we are capable of working from home, which is what we’ll be doing until the situation improves. All of our daily operations are still functional with the exception of customer service being able to receive phone calls (if you leave a message, they will call you back). Alternatively, we recommend that you reach out to them via email at CustomerService@obrien.com for faster and more efficient assistance.
For anyone who has placed orders recently, there is no need to worry. We are still capable of processing and shipping orders from our warehouse in Texas and will continue to do so until further notice. As things change, we will do our best to keep you informed. Until then, stay safe and we can’t wait to see you back out on the water.
Designed for paddlers who crave performance or for those who enjoy longer SUP adventures, the O’Brien Carbon/Bamboo Paddle has everything you need to make the most out of your time on the water. The 8” wide bamboo blade provides a large surface area for more power, while the angled and contoured blade improves efficiency for a smooth glide as you pull through each stroke. This paddle also features an adjustable grooved carbon shaft, which eliminates any twisting of shaft components and keeps the handle and blade inline at all times. Paired with our premium adjustment clamp, the user can effortlessly customize their paddle length from 68” to 85”, lock it into place and start enjoying their time on the water.
