SQUALL 580 | SQUALL 540

Squall 580 CarbonHybrid

Squall 580 CarbonHybrid Ice white

Squall- best described as a stable competetive intermediate ski. Quick and fun with superb response in waves and even though the boat has some more width you still have that tight paddle catch as on a narrow ski. The cockpit is developed from many years feedback with a carefully shaped seat and a low hump which allows for a good leg drive
Carry handles in the front, back and at the side of the cockpit makes it easy to carry on land. Bike water holder under the knees for quick access to the included NK drink bottle. The deBrito self-bailer is the most efficient on the market and manoeuvres easily from closed to open with your foot

Why 580 and 540 length? We want to be sure that we can provide you with the best surfski for the type of paddling you are doing. Generally, if you are a lighter person you can benefit of a shorther hull with some less volume and vice versa if you are a bigger person you can benefit of the longer hull with slightly more volume. But it also comes down to your own preferences, what charateristics you like? How you want your ski to behave in different conditions? Even such a thing as storage space is one factor when finding your new ski.

 

Constructions and graphics

Note: all NK skis are made with prepreg and autoclave technique, a process often used for space industry and F1 cars(and NK surfskis), the high pressure(up to 4 x atmosphere pressure) and heat from the autoclave together with the pre impregnated carbon fibres gives an unmatched lamination of composite creating an extra ordinary light yet strong construction not comparable with other techniques normally used for kayaks such as vacuum infusion or other hand lay up processes
