Description

The Nitro is an elite surfski developed for elite/advanced paddlers seeking maximum speed. On flat this boat is as quick as a K1 racer but it is primarily designed to be a surf machine. This ski surfs superbly in downwind conditions with precise steering control. The latest model possesses a new cockpit with even lower bump, more swept back backrest and the most comfortable seat you will ever sit in. The cutouts on the sides are deep and narrow, allowing for a perfectly tight paddle catch. If you ask us, this is as good as it gets.

Why two lengths?

We want to be sure that we can provide you with the best surfski for the type of paddling you are doing. Generally, if you are a lighter person you can benefit from a shorter hull and if you are a bigger person you can benefit from a longer hull. But it also comes down to a personal preference; you can decide what what characteristics you prefer? How you want your ski to behave in different conditions? If you are 95kg in weight and 200cm tall, yes your natural option would be the longer hull and if you are 60kg in weight and 160cm tall, you are likely to choose the shorter option. But if you are anywhere in-between then you can make a choice depending on what characteristics you like. Of course, if you are the bigger person choosing the shorter option, the hull will sit slightly deeper in the water and the opposite applies for the lighter person, choosing the longer hull will cause the ski to float slightly higher.
