I built this timber ski a few years ago. Hull is based on a CLC Pax20 with some tweaks. Deck is paulownia with a few WRC stripes.

Beautiful boat! And a clever way to create a wooden surf ski - basing on a kayak kit.

Nice! ... The one of Ken Katz got me impressed or the one of Vandefolie posted here, too.

note: did this post the same way, as the spam checker blocks surfski.info links as well ...

Boof Head,
Beautiful ski! Love seeing more wooden skis being built. There is MOJO in that wood! Here is an article about a recent build.

Thanks Fellas.
It's fun to paddle on the flat. Not so much in open water as it just doesn't like to turn but it's fun as a river boat.
Have admired Ken's boat as well as all the other timber skis. It was Stephen Kelly's ski that convinced me to build one originally.
I started a kayak about 12 years ago but haven't finished it. Maybe one day but it's all about surf skis for me for the last 10 years.

What a beauty! Rüdiger(72) from Germany, who normally paddles an Epic V10 Sport, designed this wooden surfski together with his friend Arnim and then built it in 350 hours of painstaking work!
