Military Proud

Kyle grew up in Wisconsin and returned after circumnavigating the globe as an Auxiliary Machinist Mate on different submarines for 11 years. Then, he proudly earned his commission in 2001. In addition, Kyle proudly remembers being DCA on the USS Duluth, taking the 15th MEU to Iraq for the beginning of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Afterward, he then joined the Naval Special Warfare Community until his retirement in January 2012.

Kyle’s father, Gary Nyseth, is a skilled craftsman. With 30 years of experience in making custom cabinets and furniture, Navy Paddles is set to give customers something special. Furthermore, Gary served in the Navy with the Attack Fighter Squadron VA22 during Vietnam. Together, they work as a team to laminate, route, sand, plane, varnish, and decorate these beautiful paddles. To conclude, the paddles are created with a level of quality and perfection that befits the military standard of excellence they are both familiar with.

Serving Military

Navy Paddles dedicates itself to serving the military and law enforcement communities and to those who have past served. Indeed, we pride ourselves in providing a beautiful way of honoring achievements and remembering milestones.

For generations, the military has used paddles as a symbol of teamwork. Specifically, as the Navy SEALs crash the surf in their Zodiacs during training, 3 men with paddles on each side, they all must work as a team to achieve the goal. Furthermore, if everyone does not paddle together, the boat will flip. On the whole, teamwork is the ultimate level of achievement in this objective. In fact, teamwork is the backbone of the Police and Fire Departments. In fact, other communities of the military experience it too. Together, our sacrifices achieve much and keep our country strong and free!
