      Seen a couple guys doing it through the neighborhood. I usually ride around on just my board to wear down the dog but wouldn't mind paddleboarding. Where did you get your stick or did you make it?

      Honestly I would just use some walking stick. You don't need some fancy stick to row yourself with. Unless there is some official street gang you would like to impress that hates if you don't have a real official paddle! lol. I think I will try this come spring!

      I can't imagine getting much push off a simple stick. I've seen some put it together with rubber hammers, other with canoe paddles. Just looking for some feedback on previous builds.

      Is there a place where you could buy one?
      Now I'm interested in getting or making one.

      You could probably use hockey pucks for the grip.

      Well hockey pucks are strong dense and durable and against pavement it would grip well. Some how attach that to the end of a paddle and it should work well.

      And also they are round so you have a bigger range of grip also

      I am gonna try a rubber hammer head this week. I think the weight would be kinda nice.

      $80 seems like alot though for a stick. Those are on the cheaper side of from what I have seen though.
