Hand Crafted Paddles

ACA Member Highlight

Fritz Orr

In addition to volunteering at paddlesports events across the southeast, Fritz is an ACA Level 5: Advanced Whitewater Canoe Instructor Trainer (1 of only 4 in the entire country). He is also a member of the Safety Education & Instruction Council. He was a member of the U.S. National Paddling Team from 1990-1996 and has taught thousands of campers the art of canoeing at both Camp Merrie-Woode and Camp High Rocks in western North Carolina.

However, his contributions to paddlesports extend even farther. His attention to detail, patience, and craftsmanship help keep the art of paddle making alive.
