Re: Roll technique for Mega surf on top

Cheers Denzil, I think you’re right about the difference in locking into the boat. Hopefully get there soon. Might force a few flips on waves to get a feel for it. Would be good to have a surf sometime. Maybe over Christmas?

Re: Roll technique for Mega surf on top

Cheers Denzil, I’ll give it a go. Since managing to roll it once I’ve been trying to stay in it and attempt a roll every time I get flipped. Trouble is I can’t stay in it! Somehow it always seems to eject me. I’ve adjusted the thigh strap mounts and foot blocks to try and get more fixed in the boat....

Re: Mega Surf-on-Top fin set up

I have a longer centre fin in mine - I’ll check as it was in it when I got it secondhand. Loving mine too. Such a fun boat - it’s completely opened up surf kayaking for me. Always wanted to do it but being in a boat in surf just freaks me out. With the SOT I’m getting the hang of it and getting used...

Re: Roll technique for Mega surf on top

Thanks Pav - nice to know there’s someone else on here! I actually managed to roll it yesterday after hip flicking off someone else’s bow a couple of times which must have loosened me up.

Roll technique for Mega surf on top

Can anyone advise on a good roll technique for a mega surf on top? I’m used to sea kayak rolling and have become reliant on laying back to finish a roll. With the surf on top being a cross between a hp boat and waveski it has a hump in the stern that stops me laying back. I can’t even roll it with a...

Re: What position are your feet in, does your leg flatten against the hull

I was taught by a coach to lower the legs away from the thigh braces unless you need them as this helps keep the boat movement loose. I must admit that after 20 years paddling it’s been quite tricky to get used to.

Re: Dagger Katana

I was chatting to a couple of guys surfing kayaks at Harlyn a couple of weeks ago. One of them had a new whitewater/gp boat. Can’t remember what it was but I remember him saying he’d had a katana and had problems with the hatch cover blowing off if a wave closed out and dumped on him. He’s a relativ...

Re: Bit of a long shot…….

Thanks a lot to extremekayakfishing for a go on a Mega Surf on top today. Real pleasure to meet up to. It was quite messy surf at Sennen and I was a little bit out of my comfort zone but it was great to try the boat. Seemed really tippy but I have been paddling my 5-o for the last few months so it’l...

Re: Bit of a long shot…….

Thanks, it’s on the radar! Keen to try a waveski rather than surf boat. The kahuna PE is a bit on the heavy side and as I understand it they don’t have a demo of the composite Kahunas or standard surf on top (just the switchblade). Thanks though - thought it was just tumbleweed in here.

One set of unused KCS V cradles including adaptors to Thule Wing Bars. These were fitted to our car momentarily and then removed as the curved roof rails the bars were mounted on caused alignment issues. They are a year or so old but in brand new condition. £75 + postage https://media.ukriversguideb...

Anyone in Cornwall able to offer me a quick go on a novice friendly waveski that would suit someone around 5’8 and 75kg? I’m considering taking the plunge into waveski surfing but don’t want to splash out on a board until I’ve given it a quick go. I’m currently getting on ok with a Perception 5-o bu...
