Questions to ask yourself…. Why a Burnwater?
Not all paddles are created equal… Just because it has four tires and a steering wheel does not make it a racecar. We here at Burnwater, were one of the first companies to manufacture a full carbon paddle and have been making premium paddles for over 15 years. Made in the USA, we strive towards creating the best quality racing paddles and accessories at affordable costs for our customers.


What materials consist inside a paddle?
A one piece carbon fiber paddle where the blade and the shaft are made in one step is lighter, stronger and more responsive. Our paddles are triple layered to maintain durability, also incorporating extra reinforcement around the tips and edges.



Does your paddle have a clean entry, with no chip tip?

Check your entry, if it splashes, kerplops or chips easily it's not a Burnwater. We add additional reinforcement on the tip/edges for more efficient strokes.


Where is your paddle made?

Burnwater paddles are made here in the USA, with great attention to detail with the highest quality materials. We have a passion for making paddles and hope to share that love with our fans.

Can you try a paddle?
We are one of the few manufacturers that will let you demo a paddle at race. Check our race schedule or find one of our Burnwater ambassadors.

Both paddles use our proprietary once piece construction process that allow us to make the blade and the shaft in one piece for strength and reduced weight. Both paddles incorporate our 3 layer carbon fiber blade that is known for one of the cleanest entries, Solid catch, durable face/edges/tip. The difference is the Wildfire comes with now colors, Black, Red, Carbon Grey and the only one handle option. This makes for a great intermediate to beginner level paddle with a more pronounced swing weight for better control on the recovery. The Reactor II on the other hand is a high performance paddle that is one of the lightest, stiffest, durable paddle out there. If you want nothing less than the best the Reactor II is the one for you.
