Summer Challenge 2010 Day 1

Wednesday, 25-Aug-10 00:02:45 UTC

Tuesday first day of official training, saw a solid swell but no wind, still the first paddlers jumped in for double session, doing the downwind paddle that they will have to do during the race on friday twice.

The start venue start to get some colours with tents, motor boats, and obviously a lot of skis!

In the afternoon session we were already 14 paddlers, with UAE, Australia; South Africa, Great Britain, Norway and Portugal represented.

Ken ” Incredible Finisher” Wallace (ask anyone that watched him on the 5km in Poznan); Tim “I have a cool Crocodile” Jacobs; Ronald “who can catch me in the start?” Rauhe; Michele “4X4 Paddler” Eray were some of the most famous paddlers already paddling today.

Tomorrow time for some more action pictures and videos, courtesy of the escort boat! Hopefully the wind will also join in.

The release of the XXL closes our first line of Surf Ski’s, the evolution has been part of this process, and we have gone a long way from the prototypes presented in Dubai last year.

Besides the obvious improvements in the shape, we have incorporated, better and more complex footrests, tractions pads, rudders sytems and soon covers as well.

The XXL aims to be an option for the heavier and taller paddlers, but also to all those that paddle often in big swells and rough conditions, both will benefit from the comfort the extra volume conceeds.

The XXL will be one more option among the rental possibilities during the Nelo Summer Challenge later this month, in what will be a great oportunity to test it in all conditions.
