The FENN Kayak Ski Family

Fenn_LS_top_Family

Surf Life Saving LS: this is a game changer responsive yet stable, punching through waves and accelerates onto any bump. Options of low seat perfect for club paddlers or high seat for the ski specialist.

BlueFin: a surfski that allows a paddler to immediately get out on the water, learn technique later.

Mako XT: Your balance has improved and you want more speed.

Swordfish: 90% of surfski paddlers worldwide should be in this surfski. It offers amazing downwind ability combined with way more speed yet similar comfort compared to the BlueFin and XT.

Elite: A top end high volume racing surfski that outperforms any other surfski in downwind conditions. In flatter conditions it fairs well. Slightly more stable than the SL and Glide.

Elite SL: A version of the Elite that offers amazing acceleration and increased “run” time on a swell. With its deceptively slim line (SL) nose you wont feel like there is anything in front of you

Elite Glide: All the downwind elements of the Elite but with much improved small and flat water design. Perfect for UK and European conditions. Less stable than the Elite, more stable than the SL.

Elite Spark: All of the attributes of the Glide reduced in volume for paddlers 80kgs and less.

Elite S: The latest boat from the Fenn factory – the boat has a classic Fenn feel in that when it accelerates onto a run you really feel as though you’re moving fast…

Elite Double: no other double surfski comes close, without doubt the most successful surfski of any kind across the globe.

Surf Life Saving Australia approved

The LS is an around the cans ski or Surf Life Saving spec ski and is about to be the first South African designed surfski that will be accredited to be used in Australian Lifesaving competitions. Due to the compulsory specifications required to be accredited, there is limited room for hull design. However, Fenn has created a ski which really stands out in one key feature: it’s ability to cut through a swell and chop. This is particularly noticeable when turning the Apex can and heading back to the beach. It feels like the ski actually parts the swell in front of you and it effortlessly glides form one swell to the next. It is going to be interesting to see what kind of results this surfski gets. The pedigree of this ski has already been proven with Matt Bowman winning the 2014 world surf ski title.

The LS comes with two seat heights to cater for big rough conditions or increased stability for newer paddlers. The high seat provides maximum paddling efficiency for the serious paddler. All skis are fully adjustable with carbon footplates and come in white.

Entry Level Ski

The Blue-Fin is a super-stable, super-light ski ideal for beginners and intermediate paddlers, an ideal transition craft from sea kayak to surfski. From the bow to the back of the cockpit it is pure surfski, from the cockpit to the rudder housing it is more kayak-like, and from the rudder housing to the stern it tapers like a “normal” ski. The kayak like 1.5m section from the cockpit back is where the effortless stability comes from.

The Blue-Fin has a great turn of speed especially against the flow and in ocean waves where this boat excels in catching runners and big swells. The 44cm cockpit, comfortable foot-well, inherent stability and a reasonably flat deck behind the cockpit gives this ski great distance capability allowing you to paddle for longer and in more comfort than any other ski in this class.

Available in: Fibreglass(weight 17kg), Vacuum Bagged Fiberglass(weight 14kg), Hybrid – fibreglass/carbon(12.5kg) and Carbon(10kg).

 

“….the Fenn Blue-Fin is an awesome surfski, not only for beginners but I reckon it will be an absolute hoot on runners and riding big swells…” – The Fat Paddler

For many years, the XT has been the de-facto standard in beginners’ skis.

Even today, there are few entry-level skis to compare for comfort, strength and stability.

Dawid Mocke should know – the founder of the first Surfski School in South Africa chose Fenn XTs when it came time to replace the school’s fleet in 2008.

Available in: Fibreglass(weight 17kg), Vacuum Bagged Fiberglass(weight 14kg), Hybrid – fibreglass/carbon(12.5kg) and Carbon(10.5kg).

The Elite SL (Slimline) was designed using the same characteristics of the Elite but with a narrower construction thus is slightly less stable. Compared to the Elite there is slightly less volume in the nose of the ski and slightly more volume in the tail. The rudder is also 10cm further forward. The seat width is 1cm narrower.

Its agility and responsiveness has proven to be a winner amongst top end paddlers.

Fenn Elite Glide – is one of the latest models released by Fenn in the last 18 months. The ‘Elite Glide’ has been designed based on the very successful Elite. With a reduction in rocker, subtle shift forward in seat and rudder, combined with a reduction in the ‘hump’ in the cockpit area and a width of only 42.5cms this ski fly’s. The Glide is ideally suited to UK and European smaller chop conditions while retaining the superior Elite downwind surfing pedigree.

Available in: Hybrid – fibreglass/carbon(12.5kg) and Carbon(10.5kg).

 

What people are saying about the Elite Glide – “…this is the best boat I have ever paddled!
“…it was clear that despite the increased stability, the Glide had lost nothing in speed
“…wanted to chase the next runner almost on its own”

The Elite S is the latest from the Fenn stable. The ‘S’ has all the traits of the Elite but with some changes. The seat is further forward making the ski sit flatter in the water. The rudder is further forward making the ski even more manoeuvrable than the older Elite.  The hump between the seat and footwell has been reduced and the footwell is lower. There is some volume taken out of the nose.

In essence the Elite S has all the re-known surfing characteristics of the Elite while bringing in the flat-water qualities that the Glide and lower volume Spark offer.

This is a ski for good paddlers but has more stability than some of its rivals in the same class.

Available in: Hybrid – fibreglass/carbon(12.5kg) and Carbon(10.5kg).
