Double Surfski under 7m for beginners

4 months 3 weeks ago #35992 by tomy
I am searching a double Surfski for my Club.
It must be stable and under 7m long.
The only suiting Skis I know are the Epic V8 Double and the Nelo 600.
Are there any other Skis we should consider buying which match my specs?
Thanks for your help
Cheers

Hmm...  The Carbonology Boost double is 7.2m.
The Fenn XT S is 7.5m 

The Nelo 600 has the benefit of dual rudder controls so that a beginner in the back can be given the opportunity to steer.
I've heard good things too about the V8 Double, but haven't had a chance to paddle it.

The Carbonology Boost double and  Fenn XT S were both in my Horizont - but for my club with a lot of transportation on "small" German cars simply to long.
I will have to stick with Nelo & Epic, if there are there really no more double Skis under 7m around possible?

Nordic Kayaks just announced a new double (6,70m + 50cm) a few days ago for 2020. Maybe Gordan knows more? The (new) V8double is a great boat! Stable, fast, tons of fun! We've got four V8double in our club and almost everybody loves this boat.

Yep - on their Facebook page the Nordic Kayaks folks are talking about a new double design, but it looks as though it's not available yet.

"670 x 50 cm, coming 2020"

Think has a new ski called the Duo S. Looks like it is designed for a very light, maybe even juvenile crew. Also much narrower than the epic or nelo offering. It is short though.
