I have a large crease (break but not all the way through to other side) in my paddle blade. I have read that it is possible to fix carbon shafts at carbon bike repairers. Is it possible to repair? Does anyone know where south of Perth. (or post). If not, is it possible to buy a blade without the shaft. I quite like this one - Enduro Super Flex carbon 8X but open to comments on it s durability etc. I think it happened on a large wave I dug the paddle into on the bottom turn but I also copped one or two on the head that day. I don't remember any collisions etc.
