Experimenting with Rudders

Thursday, 17 April 2008 08:26 |

I enjoy the science and design of surfskis nearly as much as paddling them and have experimented with a number of things including:

  • A low aspect ventral fin under the seat of the paddler
  • A winged rudder with an endplate
  • A hydrofoil located on the bow of the ski

Soul ski - from down under

Our story on New Zealander Brad Haye's wooden surfski, aroused plenty of interest including a comment that it was ‘great to see some "SOUL" in the sport'... Well, it seems there's plenty of "soul" down under - here's news of another timber-ski project, this time by Stephen Kelly of Brisbane, Australia.

Surf ski with soul!
