Review: Nordic Kayaks NITRO and NITRO Plus

Sunday, 06 July 2014 15:18 | Written by
Last year, Nordic Kayaks CEO Fredrik Lindstrom started sending me drawings and digital renderings of the new NITRO surfski. All my life I've been on high performance craft, rowing, sailing and paddling - and this one just looked right to me. In April I finally got the chance to paddle…

A little while ago I was asked if I would like to demo a new ski in development, sounded fun, so a few weeks ago I got the call to pick up the first of two skis I would test over the next few weeks: The Switch

A beginner paddler test pilots the Fenn Bluefin in the 2013 Mauritius Ocean Classic. As a beginner paddler I confess I don’t give a lot of weight to reviews of entry-level skis by guys who usually paddle a greased toothpick.  For starters, I am certain that my definition of "stability"…

Surfski.info Review: Think Evo II

I’ve been paddling the Evo II for a couple of months – it’s a stable, comfortable ski that goes like a rocket downwind.  Well worth checking out if you’re in the market for an intermediate boat.

Second time out on my new V10 Double - in some challenging downwind conditions - and we take a swim...  Nothing like being 2km offshore to try out remounting a new ski!

Surfski Review: Carbonology Sport Flash

When I was first offered the opportunity to demo the “Flash”, Carbonology’s first foray into the full-length elite ski market, I recalled Rob’s impression in his review of the Carbonology Atom, “it made me look like a paddling super-hero”.  But on my first encounter with the “Flash” the first impression I…

First Looks: FLOW Kayak’s Superstar

Thursday, 14 June 2012 15:25 | Written by
What do you get if you take a tiny South Pacific Nation, mix this with a (borderline obsessive-compulsive) national fervor for all-things-adventure-sport, add a pinch of tight exchange-rates, stir in a very precise quantity of hi-tech engineering prowess, and ladle in a generous dollop of gutsy, dogged determination to out-perform…
