Description

The Squall is best described as a stable intermediate ski. Quick and fun with superb control in waves. With a tight catch, this competitive surfski has an extraordinary ratio between stability and speed. Easier to remount than most and with a wide comfortable seat that is designed to fit also more narrow hips.

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.
