A few weeks ago I had some water in my paddle after a long surf. I fully stripped it removed the old glue and resealed it with araldite handle and paddle.

Went for a surf this arvo and can hear a tiny bit of water in there again. I submerged the handle to look for bubbles but didn't see anything. I don't own a pool so can't fully submerge it. Is there another way I can try to find where it's coming from? I might have to goto the local passage and submerge it there?.

Try putting in sun and spray with soap detergent and look for bubbles, worked for me in the past

The tow areas to check are the handle and blade + junction.

You can improvise a basin with a plastic bag (garbage bag) to immerse the blade in.

I recently re sealed both areas + a good wrap of electrical tape. I stuck the handle in a bucket but couldn't see any bubbles. Will try the black in a bag and have a look.
