'Storm paddle' is a modern term for a relatively short paddle often used in the fjords of Southwest Greenland up through the 20th century. Even if the paddle type is commonly referred to as a 'storm paddle' it does not seem to have much relation to stormy weather. Fjord winds however are common in the area
