Performance and Shape

A Waveski requires the person to be sitting on the board with the legs extended out

in front similar to a kayak except you are on top of the board. The rider stays on with

a quick release seatbelt, and foot straps that secure the feet.

The rider uses a paddle to propel and ride on the ocean waves or on the flat lakes and rivers.

 

THE Waveski:  Basic Parts List

  • Waveski hull.
  • Rail: The rail is the outer edge of the underside of the ski.
  • Rocker: The rocker is the bottom curve of the ski from nose to tail.
  • Foot straps
  • Seat belt -quick release buckleWaveski Surfing - Greg
  • Fin boxes (3).
  • Set of fins(3).
  • Seat pad.
  • Hardware.

Choosing the right ski depends on:

  • The use you will be giving it.
  • How dedicated you will be to the sport
  • Where you will be paddling, what type of waves 


Basically the longer the ski the easier it is to paddle, to catch a wave and paddle long distances. Shorter

skis generally are harder to get going. They need much more energy, but are more maneuverable.

Length and width of the wave ski relates to the body height and weight.

Generally the better you become the smaller the ski you can use.

 

Shape of the waveski

High performance:  meaning the bottom rocker is faster with less volume in the rails. This is a waveski

specifically designed for riding ocean waves. These designs are the more experienced paddler, lighter

weight person, or one who is willing and dedicated to waveski surfing alot.

Fun performance: a larger ski usually 8' or larger with a flat or slight v bottom and plenty of volume for

forgiveness when learning. The seat pan is generally deeper allowing for a lower center of gravity.

These shapes are good for larger people, beginners, once in a while surfer or flat water paddler.

 

Construction

There are several forms of construction for waveskis. The Island wave skis are made to give the person a

lightweight and durable product. A foam blank is shaped and coated with a skin of fiberglass and epoxy

resins. This material gives an incredibly light ski that weighs between 12 to 16 pounds. The solid core ski

has an advantage that cannot sink even if severely damaged. The epoxy gives some when hit and this

prevents a shattering of the glass when struck. We use the highest grade epoxy available with the most

UV protection along with a special finish fiberglass cloth for a high quality finish. The high performance skis

ave added reinforcement in the needed areas.
