Gearlab Outdoors is proud to introduce our first norsaq, a tool used in many styles of Greenland rolls.
The Aleut and Inuit people used norsaqs as a leverage tool to add power when throwing harpoons. The dwarf paddle sat on top of their kayak and helped them roll when their Greenland paddle was dropped. Norsaqs - also known as rolling sticks, rolling pins, throwing sticks, atlatl, and woomera - are now rarely used as originally intended with harpoons, but they remain a tool used in many styles of Greenland rolls.
Pikatti means “companion” in the Inuit language and, indeed, this norsaq serves as a paddler’s partner for challenging rolls.The Pikatti retains the traditional Inuit shape, but utilizes Gearlab Outdoors' modern composite carbon fiber to produce a strong, light and buoyant norsaq. With its catchy Gearlab logo, the Pikatti is certain to be a fun norsaq for rolling.
