Boat Selection

The Surfski Kayak concept blends the best features of racing surf skis with high performance sea kayaks. The result is an awesome watercraft that is easy to paddle and performs well in all conditiions from flat water to a rolling groundswell.

A true Surfski Kayak can handle waves from any direction and surf open sea waves for hundreds of metres on a single run. These boats can cover great distances - they just make you want to paddle further and faster which is superb for fitness.

Surfski Kayak - By Design

Virtuallty the full length of a surfski kayak is in the water. Experience and testing have shown that a full-length waterline provides maximum efficiency for a kayak going forward, and creates more volume in the bow for better rough water performance.

Swede Form Shape: A swede form kayak is wider behind the seat for better stability, and narrower in the bow for a smooth entry into the water and a close efficient stroke.

Rocker Profile: The rocker in surfski kayaks should be optimized to provide improved handling in a wide range of sea conditions.

Front Deck Cutaways: Cutaway front deck design allows a close, efficient catch at the start of every paddle stroke.

Steering System: The surfski steering system provides dependable control, a clean silhouette and easy access for adjustment and repairs.

Adjustable Full Foot Brace: Allows paddlers to use their legs in the stroke (pressure on the heels) while steering independently with their toes.

Adjustable Seat: Surfski kayak foot pedals are adjustable for different height paddlers. They slide forward and back on an integrated cockpit rail. Paddlers can fine tune their cockpit position for maximum efficiency and personal comfort.

High Tech Materials: Surfski kayaks are made with strong, lightweight materials.
