Wanted Valley (VCP) Skeet - Wave Ski

Post by mikehh » Fri Oct 28, 2016 5:30 pm

Wanted Valley Skeet, a wave ski from late 1970s early 80s, they were just over 9ft long and other than the competition model, relied on one sliding along the seat pan to change the weight distribution. It may be that I'll be quite disappointed with the way they paddle after paddling modern skis, but its what I started on and I am keen, as much out of nostalgia, to have another go. Alternatively if anyone has one, and they don't want to sell it, I'd be happy to hire it for an hour or so (under the watchful eye of the owner to ensure it isn't damaged).
From recollection the big problem with Skeets was that they were hollow and would suck water in around the seams and then became very unmanageable.

Mike
