Surfskis

 

Squall

Squall

Squall is best described as a stable intermidiate ski. Quick and fun with superb control in waves and with a tight catch, this competitive surfski has an extraordinary ratio between stability and speed. Easier to remount than most and with a wide comfortable seat that is designed to fit also more narrow hips.

What set one surfski apart from other are often the small details. The delicate balance between rocker and volume distribution can make one hull a dream on large waves and another a monster. The exact position of seat and rudder can give you total control in one surfski, while in another you have to fight for it. We spent a lot of time calculating, testing and fine-tuning this – millimeter for millimeter. That is why you will find a Nordic Kayaks surfski a reliable performer in all conditions.

Cockpit comfort is another core variable in the surfski experience. A slightly raised, carefully tilted seat with a good lower back support, combined with shorter and lower knee hump means an upright aggressive position for racing and relaxed long-distance comfort when touring. The pedal system with self-adjusting rudder lines will fit paddlers from 160 to 200 cm.

All models are fitted with the new self bailer (deBrito bailer)that easily can be maneuvered with your foot between cloosed, semi opened and max opened. Fully opened it drains out a full cockpit in less than 10 sec.

NK skis are designed to be used with a aft-mounted kick-up rudder. Switching between under-hull rudder to a kick-up takes only a couple of minutes and is very eas
