The Beginning

Custom Carbon began making Carbon Oars and sculls in 1986.Several sets were produced for clubs and schools.The introduction of the Big Blade meant exciting times experimenting with laminates and materials to utilise the extra twist and loading of the new shape blade on the shafts.

Being keen rowers ourselves ,a row in a "recreational boat " on Auckland Harbour had us hooked on the possibilities offered by Open Water Rowing.

We produced our first model the Amiga in 1999.
