If you are happy to experiment, etc., another option might be to build up the front of the recesses (so your heels aren't so far forwa...

Re: Waveski sizing advice

I'm no expert, but i have been told that you should be able to put two clenched fists (on top of each other) between the deck and under your knee when you are sitting on the pad with your feet in the recesses. So long as the pad sits within the 'seat pan', i would have thought it will be alright, an...

Re: Which video camera, GoPro, Contour, etc, ??

i can recommend the SJCam SJ4000. I've had mine for getting on for a year and had no problems. You can get one off eBay for under £60 incl p & p. As far as i am concerned its equally as good if not better than my mates gopro but a helluva lot cheaper, but no good if you are an 'equipment snob'.

Re: Repairing an Atlantic waveski

It's not really answering your question, but i would suggest the effort required would not be worth it.
I had a 'hollow' Atlantic waveski from new and had problems with leaks, etc from the start.
It's a personal opinion, but get yourself a decent waveski - Pro Designs or Jemski.

electricians tape (colour to match your paddle) 'stretched' around the edge helps prevent minor knocks.
