How do I choose a surfski?
You need to choose your Surfski based on two variables: STABILTY and BODY TYPE. Your primary and most important consideration is to be stable in the predominant conditions you paddle in, and your secondary consideration is finding the right boat for your body type.
Why is it called a surf ski?
Surf Skis are designed for open ocean paddling in varying conditions. The hull shape is designed to be sleek and fast for fitness paddling or racing and will easily catch waves and swell in the ocean. The bow of the boat is shaped specifically to pierce large waves as well as shed water when submerged.
Is surf ski good exercise?
To me, surf skiing is one of the best forms of fitness play. It builds muscular endurance, a strong core, cardiovascular fitness and stability, but it doesn’t feel as if I am doing “fitness”. It’s fun.
