Surfski Width x Length Chart - Sept. 2017

2 years 11 months ago - 2 years 2 days ago #27751 by owenfromwales
In 2013 there were about 50 ski designs on the list, today (Sept. 2017) it`s up to 202 and there must a few more out there that are absent. Feel free to let me know what`s wrong/missing from the list.

Happy paddling all!

One question to those in the know: I was trying to remember the specs for the old Chalupski / Oscar ski. I`ve guessed 46 x 580 from memory, but if anyone has one in their shed still, would appreciate an accurate check!

Thanks,

Owen

Ah mais oui...
You Breton?
You speak good French?

In all seriousness, i believe that we'll have several new surfski on the market before jun 2017 comes around... perhaps 8 more that i can think of.

Ludovic,
I`m from Barry, near Cardiff, but have been living in Okinawa for most of the last 18 years. Have done quite a few surf trips to La Torche and other spots back in the 80s/90s.

The more skis, the better!

Hi Owen,

OCEAN Skis have re-branded to OZEAN. 4 types, each with three different layups. Understand the SL designation stands for Slim Line. SIzes I believe are the same as the Ocean brand product. I do know for sure that the OSS 3 SL is W 46 and L 6245.

Great thread by the way Owen Bach B)

Cheers,

Mick

Hi All,
I`ve got two sets of specs for the Carbonology Pulse: 43 x 605 and 44 x 610. Can anybody help me put dates of manufacture to either of these specs for this model?

Also, if anybody has any new info, or can see any mistakes, please don`t be shy in coming forward!

Happy paddling,

Most common ski specs

Now that we`ve got over 200 skis on our list, I decided to see what width x length combination has been used the most (apart from the lifesaving spec skis).

With seven boats from five globally diverse locations, the advanced 43 x 640 pairing seems to be the most common:

DD3 Turbo 43 x 640 - Australia
Epic V12 (new) 43 x 640 - USA
Epic V14 (old) 43 x 640 - USA
Flow Kayaks Addict 43 x 640 - NZ
Flow Kayaks Sharpski 43 x 640 - NZ
Knysna Genius 40 43 x 640 - SA
Nordic Kayaks Nitro 43 x 640 - Sweden

The second most common dimension was with five boats at 48 x 580, and in joint third with three each, 45 x 645 and 45 x 610.

Happy paddling,

Owen

Hi Owen,

Thanks for latest update. For Epic V14 (old) did you mean V12?

Thanks,
