Fenn Elite S

There seems to be a new surfski model from Fenn that is going to hit the market soon. The Fenn Elite S. The Elite S is rumoured to be a low volyme model of the normal Fenn Elite with some changes in the cockpit that is also moved forward as well as the rudder. These changes will make the Elite S more suitable for smaller paddlers and improved surf characteristics.

No available specs of the the new Fenn Elite S so far


Will Jasper or Dawid Mocke win the world series in Surfski?

Besides the Mocke Brothers there are a couple of great surfski paddlers who can win on Saturday. Sean Rice, Jeremy Cotter, Hank the Tank McGregor and of course Tim Jacobs. It will also be very interesting to follow the battle between Dawid and Jasper. Will the World Series be determind already on saturday?

New models from Fenn Kayaks

Fenn Kayaks has launched three new surfskis into the market. Very interesting models and Fenn Kayaks will now attract even more surfski paddlers, from complete beginners to advanced. They are called BLUE-FIN, SPARK and GLIDE.


The new entyl level is called BLUE-FIN and is a surfski that allows a paddler to surfski immediately and learn balance later. It is the most stable surfski that still act as a surfski and not as an seakayak. It will make the transition from seakayaking to surfski easy. It is also suitable for complete beginners. The BLUE-FIN has the following specs:

• 34cm Highest point
• 44cm Seat width
• 53cm Total width
• 590cm Length


The new ELITE SPARK is a low volume version of the ELITE for paddlers under the 80kg weight range and less than 6ft in hight. It has kept the brilliant downwind abilities from the ELITE. The ELITE SPARK has the following specs:

• 29cm Highest poin
• 37cm Seat width
• 42.5cm Total width
• 644cm Length


The new ELITE GLIDE is an advanced surfski that really goes well on the flat and in small water in the open sea. It will also have really good downwind abilities. The Glide will be faster but less stable on flat water compared to the Elite but more stable than the SL. The ELITE GLIDE has the following specs:

• 36cm Highest point
• 38.5cm Seat width
• 42.5cm Total width
• 644cm Length
