INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Select your hand position locations for Paddle Wrap on your paddle shaft. Ensure the shaft is free from dirt, wax or other materials. Wrap the shaft starting 1 inch from the outside of your hand position towards the shaft center to at least 1 inch beyond the inside portion of your hand position. Overlap each turn by ½ the width of the wrap. Form a second layer by continuing to wrap back towards the point at which you started, finishing on the initial wrap outside edge. Again, overlap each turn by ½ the width of the wrap. Two layers are all that is required, although some paddlers prefer extra padding and comfort from additional layers.
