Testing the Fenn Spark in Greece

Our week in Greece has continued with some sightseeing in central Athens with the very friendly guide Minos. We went to the famous Akropolis and the impressive ancient remainings. It’s a must on your to do list if you are visiting Athens.

I have also done some paddling. The water temperature is about 25 C so it’s feels great when the water temperature is about 10 C in Sweden. I have tried the Fenn Elite Spark, which I will race in on saturday. A very brief summary of the Spark. It’s stable, more stable than the Fenn Elite but more unstable (but not much) compared to the Swordfish. It has a thight cock-pit. I’m 177 cm and 74 kg (at the moment). Remounting was easier than I expected, not as easy as remounting the Swordfish but still quite easy. I love the thight feeling, it gives me good control of the ski. I will evaluate it even more during the week before writing a more detailed test report.
