I am selling my paddle Werner Tybee FG used barely 10times. It is a high angle two piece paddle with adjustable angle. You know the deal with Werner, once mounted it does feel like a one piece paddle. I can ship anywhere at extra cost.

What about Koaro Packraft ?
They are made in N.Z, so you would not have to pay for customs, and I think the customer service would be much better.
