Man, the support we are getting from the Kayaking community is awesome!!! We are pround to announce Bending Branches as a new sponsor for NTXKC 2017!!! Bending Branches is the leading manufacture of some of the best Paddles money can buy! Quote from the company "As the world’s largest manufacturer of quality canoe and kayak paddles, we remain a privately held company in Northwestern Wisconsin, staffed by paddling enthusiasts. This translates into countless hours spent designing, prototyping, testing, and perfecting each of our paddles. When that’s done, we go back and look at ways to build them even better. Lighter, stiffer, smarter, more durable, and more beautiful. Our customers have found our paddles to be their long-term companions on adventures, both short and long."
