Ok I don't know if I'm alone here but what on earth is the verb of surfski?

I want to go surfski
I want to go surfskiing
I want to go surfski paddling
I want to go paddling

I usually just say 'I want to go for a surfski' but that's like saying 'I want to go for a bicycle'.

What do you guys think?

I say I'm going ski paddling, never use the words surf ski, people think its something its not. Then again when I had an issue with the Harbour Master the other week I mentioned I was somewhere in my Ski, he thought I meant a Jet Ski so who knows? I said you know, a paddle craft.

Lol again. I reckon antonsa has a problem (see his avatar Perth paddlers heading to RSA for PE to EL). How does he get paddle to water? Thought I had a long torso..

I think they should be called ocean skis as that is what they are designed for. In my mind a surfski is similar to a wave ski.

Same here.

Most people I have talked to does not know what a surfski is or what you do with it. 50% think I started to surf and think I am going to bleach my hair and start using Dude a lot more in sentences. The other half think I am a waveskier.

I use the verb surfski'ing mostly, but most people don't know what is meant by it, so I just use surfski paddling.

Enjoy the paddle guys.
