Our paddles are made of 3-pieces and assembled using a push pin system. 

Water can make its way into these sections, particularly if the paddle has spent some time in the water. It's good practice if your paddle has been in the water to separate the paddle, wash the paddle with clean water and place the separated parts of your paddle upright and upside down to allow any water to drain out. You can pop off the end caps or tether bung which will allow the water to drain fully. If there is lots of water trapped in the paddle, we advise following these steps and leaving to drain between paddles.
