Welcome 2016-Let’s have a look back, before we start the Next 50.

Welcome all of our friends to the official start of the 2016 season.  Each year Werner Paddles treats our employees to a well deserved break to end the season with our "Holiday Shutdown" between Christmas Eve through New Year's Day.  The first day back in the office marks an exciting day to kick off a new year of paddling adventures for all of our staff, friends, dealers and Team paddlers.  Especially energizing today, on January 4th, is the official start of a new chapter for us after celebrtaing the milestone of "Handcrafting paddles for 50 Years" in 2015.

While the possibilities that lie ahead are endless and hold high expectations, let's take a moment to look back again before we officially turn our sites to 2016 and beyond.  Below is a recap of all our of our 2015 "Throw Back Thursday" blog posts, that celebrated some of the great moments in our history.  We hope you will take some time to scroll back and take some inspiration from those who helped make this milestone possible.

Thanks to all who had a part and we look forward to creating new memories in the year to come.
