The Kayak Centre EOS 660 – a 2nd opinion

Tuesday, 29 June 2010 20:44 |

One of the benefits of being associated with is that one gets to paddle lots of new skis often before examples appear on the water or in the local paddle shops. Review: EOS 660

Fast – but not for the faint hearted...  We’ve been paddling the EOS 660 from Kayak Centre. Here’s the review. Review - Custom Kayaks Horizon

Custom Kayaks recently released a new entry in the beginner’s surfski market – the Horizon.  The name was inspired by the idea of novice paddlers expanding their “horizons”…  So, does this ski lend itself to doing just that? Review – Honcho Guru

We frequently receive emails from readers asking about beginner's surfskis, and until recently we haven't been able to reply with the benefit of personal experience...  but in the last couple of weeks I've had the opportunity to paddle some new skis aimed directly at the beginner's end of the market.

Stiffness and Stability

Sunday, 06 September 2009 15:51 |


We had the unique opportunity to compare two identical skis - identical that is except for the layup.  One is a stiff carbon ski; the other has a cork composite layup.  How does the stiffness of the skis compare - and what difference does it make to the stability of the ski?

I was lucky enough to get my hands on the upgraded Epic Mid-Wing Paddles recently.  The new model has strengthened blades and a lever length-lock. Review - Green7

Bling Special…  This ski turns heads on the beach – and is one of the nicest boats I’ve ever paddled. Review - Kayak Centre Illusion

Some great technical innovations set this ski apart - but directional instability makes it sometimes uncomfortable to paddle.

How about a ski made out of recyclable "green" material?  How about a 12.5kg ski that costs about 30% less than the equivalent in carbon, but with comparable stiffness?  No, it's not April 1! Review: Think Uno

I finally got my hands on one of the new Think Unos this spring. Because Wisconsin is sort of in the middle of nowhere relative to the commercial transport routes, it seemed like I was about the last person in the world to actually lay my eyes on the ski and I had to bear with the initial reports coming in from Australia, Washington, Rhode Island and elsewhere.
