Surfski.info Server Upgrade - Done & Dusted

Tuesday, 08 April 2008 16:36 |

After some late nights and many emails to our service provider we are glad to report that Surfski.Info is up and running on our very own managed server. We were basically given final notice last week by our service provider to vacate the shared server or be shut down. We had outgrown the neighbourhood and were taking up more resources than was permissible.

With the new server we have plenty room to grow, in fact we are only taking up a third of the space that we are paying for. So if you would like to make use of that space to host your website (and help out with the cost of hosting surfski.info) then please let us know by emailing us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. If you don't have a website yet then this is the ideal opportunity for us to help you build one.

Soul ski - from down under

Sunday, 09 March 2008 11:27 |

Our story on New Zealander Brad Haye's wooden surfski, aroused plenty of interest including a comment that it was ‘great to see some "SOUL" in the sport'... Well, it seems there's plenty of "soul" down under - here's news of another timber-ski project, this time by Stephen Kelly of Brisbane, Australia.

Surf ski with soul!

'Oscar in Sweden'

Sunday, 10 February 2008 10:47 |

We're considering starting a column on the site called, "The Adventures of Oscar the Paddler"...  Yep, he's at it again.  Oscar Chalupsky is on a European tour to visit the Epic dealers (and to create new ones).  Last seen in Wales, he's re-surfaced (briefly) in Sweden where he joined the local "Dawn Patrol" in a warm (0-2degrees Centigrade) paddle with some of the best Adventure Racers in the world.

Big Wednesday Revisited – Gale Force Downwind Dash

Sunday, 10 February 2008 04:24 |

Gale Force?  Interest has been expressed in some quarters as to just how strong the wind was last Wednesday when the Downwind Dash records were beaten.  Jean Tresfon, sent us the story of what happened at his factory - which is located near to Milnerton and probably experienced the same wind conditions.

When Sprint Training Matters

Thursday, 17 January 2008 09:37 |

All the top paddlers will tell you that in order to increase your paddling speed, there's nothing like sprint training.  Sometimes, though it's difficult to get motivated - it's hard work after all.

Looks as though this guy just found the answer to the motivation problem...
