World's Largest Hand Paddle / Oar

Certified by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title as the 'Largest Hand Paddle / Oar' and based on an actual paddle, this proportionally correct monolith is scaled up 13 times to over 60 feet - perfect for a 78-foot giant! Nestled below the towering Canadian Rocky Mountains, the World’s Largest Paddle provides breathtaking views of the surrounding Columbia River Valley near Golden, BC. Initially sparked by an off-the-cuff remark while brainstorming highway signage options, the idea of building a giant paddle took root in the imagination of owner Mark Teasdale. Six months later Mark surprised master woodworker Dave Stonehouse with a request to tackle the project, and a dream was born.

What does it take to build the world’s largest paddle?

  • One Western Red Cedar log, over 60 feet long
  • One 4' x 44' slab of LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber)
  • 5,300 lbs of materials in total
  • 200 hours of labour
  • 4 gallons of Varathane
  • a love of place and a great sense of humour

Quick Facts

  • Length: 18.573 m ( 60.9 feet)
  • Height: 2.8 m (9.2 feet)
  • Weight: 2,404 kg ( 5,300 lbs)

There is a little pond to cool down, take your swimsuit with you, but the paddle is done within 5 seconds, honestly.
