An intermediate surfski designed with the same features as our Nitro models but with some added stability this ski becomes a pure surfing machine alowing the paddler to focus on paddling hard. The Storm is a responsive, versatile and fast surfski in waves and very competitive also on flatwater. It is designed for racing and fitness paddling.

 

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 of a shorther hull and vice versa if you are a bigger person you can benefit of the longer hull. But this also comes down to your own preferences, what characteristics you like – how you want your ski to behave in different conditions? Even such a thing as storage space is one factor when you finding your new ski. If you are 95 kg 2 m, yes your natural option would be the longer hull and if you are 60 kg 160 cm you likely choose the shorther. But anything in between you can choose depending on what charateristics you like. Of course if you are the bigger person choosing the shorther hull it will sit slightly deeper in the water and opposite for the lighter person chosing the longer hull it will float slightly higher.

Material and construction

Note: all NK skis are made with autoclave and prepreg technique, a process often used for space industry and F1 cars, the high pressure (up to 4 x atmosphere pressure) and heat from the autoclave together with the pre impregnated fibres guarantees a very hard bond between the layers of composite creating a extra ordinary light yet strong construction not comparable with other techniques normally used for kayaks such as vacuum infusion or other hand lay up processes.
