Swedens first surfski training camp

Swedens first surfski training camp gathered 31 enthusiastic paddlers this weekend…

FANTASTIC!

We spent a lot of time in our surfskis during the weekend, chasing waves and nice downwind rides, and we were able to test paddle the latest and fastest skis from Epic, Fenn, Think and Zedtech. We even got to try the Swedish prototype ski from Nordic Kayaks, The Fusion!

Christian Dietz from Bootshaus (general agent for Think kayaks), and Erik Wallgren from Nomado Kayaks (general agent for Epic Kayaks) ”sponsored” the camp with the fastest surfskis available on the market.

Conny Edholm, former World Champion in sprint kayaking ,visited us on Saturday and held an inspiring work shop on proper paddling technique.

I want to THANK YOU ALL for a fantastic weekend! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!
