I'm Andy Convery, the face behind Echo Paddles. I am father to three young boys and partner to Jess. We're a paddling family and Echo is a family business driven by my passion for being outdoors, sculpting, teaching, paddling and working with my hands. After a career as a professional sculptor, I started working on the river guiding wilderness trips in 1991. What makes EchoPaddles so unique is that I have been an avid canoe tripper, play boater and slalom racer for many years alongside my art making and woodworking. I am constantly refining what makes a great design so that everyone who uses an Echo can have an amazing experience on the water.
