Re: Wavesport ZG Vs Project X

I love having the fins on the element, it makes a big difference in a wave. The white-water seating position suits me much better compared to surf kayaks with the low knees close together.

Re: Wavesport ZG Vs Project X

Not new to surf, I currently paddle a Fluid Element as I can't get on with edgey surf boats. I love how the Element surfs and I can roll it relatively easy in the pool, but it's only good for surf conditions and nothing else. I also struggle to roll it out in the sea which I think is due to confiden...

Wavesport ZG Vs Project X

Can anyone tell me how these two boats would differ in the surf?

Has anyone paddled both and could give me a brief description on their strengths and weaknesses?

Thanks.

Pro-Designs Waveski

I have a Pro-Designs waveski that has been fully refurbished with a new paint job, new footstraps, waist belt and seat pad. I have emailed Alan Neighbour who has confirmed it should take someone up to around 13 stone max. I am 5ft 6 but a little too short for it, I have therefore stuck the seatpad f...

Re: Waveski - Which Leash should I go for?

What length would you recommend? A short bodyboard coiled leash (1.2m), or one around the length of the ski?

Re: car keys

Aquapacs are designed for this purpose, but over time i guess they could leak or not be sealed due to user error, so double bagging gives a little more piece of mind.

Re: car keys

+1 for Aquapac inside my buoyancy aid.

If you're really worried you could put the key inside a sealed sandwich bag before putting inside the aquapac to make double measures.

Waveski - Which Leash should I go for?

Hi Guys, I'm due to have a dabble at waveski'ing soon after picking up a cheap ski. I can't however find a lot of info on which leash is best to use? I'm torn between a coiled leash which will stay out the way whilst surfing but may be a hazard once I'm off the ski in the water, as opposed to a stra...

Re: Waveski sizing advice

The ski is a complete project that needs foam replacing and laminating with new fibreglass. I bought it to learn on but intend to use it eventually. Good idea with the closed cell foam, I didn't think of that!

Re: Waveski sizing advice

Yes that does make sense thank you. I have a feeling if I sit on the seat and put my feet in the recess, my legs will be flat. I also have a feeling if I were to move the seat pad forward until my legs are bent, the pad will be a lot further forward than the fins. I will have to have another look la...

Waveski sizing advice

Hi guys, I picked up a secondhand waveski as a little project to work on, it needs some repairs doing to it before it is fully water-tight. However, I didn't think at the time about where the foot recesses are in relation to the seat pad. Is this more critical when choosing a waveski than a kayak? I...

Re: Bullitt S vs Ride Eclipse, how do they differ?

Are there any other older (pre 2017) boats that are easy to paddle (for someone who struggles with tippy boats) suited for messy surf other than the Bullitt S?

Something that would sell for under £600 secondhand?

I have been emailing Cam for the last week about it, he wouldn't budge past £900. I've been toying between a composite boat and buying a SUP and just today bought a secondhand SUP so don't have the funds anymore. Don't think I could have afforded £750 either, my max budget was nearer £600. Just have...

Re: WANTED: Composite Fluid Element

I sat in a Bullitt S an it felt very thin, need to have a go in one really.

Are there any wider models that are easy to paddle/roll? I've seen a few phantoms for sale recently..

Re: WANTED: Composite Fluid Element

There doesn't seem to be anymore about now they have stopped making them.

Are there any Mega/Ride boats that have the higher knee position like in a whitewater boat? I bought a plastic neutron before the Element but really struggled in it. Just found it too tippy and couldn't roll it.
