In this video I show how I repaired a broken paddle shaft Wabi Sabi style. The shaft originally broke learning to foil surf, I bashed it several times on the rail of my board and on the foil itself. Jim Terrell has this video explaining how carbon shafts break.
In Star Wars movies some characters get light sabered and their body parts are replaced with human made machine parts. I am moving in the other direction with my machine made carbon paddle being repaired and replaced with sun and earth grown plants.
Here is the link to the Amazing Tape I use as a peel layer.
