First pictures of Nordic Kayaks new prototype surfski

Found some pictures with Fredrik Lindström from Nordic Kayaks in a new prototype – what I believe is their upcoming “top-of-the-line” surfski. According to designer Björn Thomasson they compared  the new prototype against  a few selected surfskis, photographed and analyzed the waves from the bow and stern on flat water and in waves, how the steering system and the rudder worked with-, against- and diagonally in the waves and they analyzed the turbulence when he used the rudder to the max… The prototype used in the test was the first one and the deck was temporary made out of plastic and duct tape. Thomasson said that the prototype did well, but some minor adjustments will be made as a result of this first test.

I am really looking forward to hear more about this new swedish surfski.

    Komm igen nu Fredde! Inte så feg!! Fören ska vara STOOOOOORRRR! Detta liknar Nelo, V10S eller L och sånt mitt emellan skis. Nu snackar jag bara om utseendet.

    Kul med en vas låda!

    Yo Pauli, du misstar dig, det är mer volym än V12. Vi kommer att banta lite. Många fokuserar på volymen i fören men det är i min mening balansen mellan för och aktervolym som är det kritiska. För mycket aktervolym så kan du ändå inte få effekt av en stor volym i fören. Se på tex Fenn elite som får anses ganska lyckad… mindre volym men bärighet genom mer rocker. Dock kommer vi ha mer volym än så men det är en lång väg kvar innan vi är nöjda.

    Hi Peter,

    Greetings from Sydney! Thanks for taking us out for a paddle last time I was in Stockholm.
    Next time you are in Australia, please let us know and we can head out on the skis.
    Good to see the Nordic Fusion is only getting better and better! Its interesting to see too that the guys will test their prototype not only on the CAD station but also in the water before commitment to a mold.

    All the best, hope things are well.

    Cheers
    Steve
