Snow-shovel paddle

Back in ''03 when I saw my first OC-1 in competition (solo, in a kayak race) the fellow had a paddle that looked about 11-12 inches wide.

Did my eyes deceive me or were there paddles that wide on the market? As I recall it looked like a butcher block with strips running longitudinally down the blade.

Broadreach's regular full size blade is 10.75 wide. Most guys will make whatever you want so I've seen several 12" blades runnin around for training.
