The new Nelo 520 Surfski is designed to get anyone into the sport of surfski while keeping the experienced paddler enthused with it’s quick acceleration, effortless cruising speed and excellent handling downwind or in surf. Taking it’s overall design from the concept of the 560 you will find integrated cockpit handles as well as sturdy grab handles bow and stern. At only 17′ in length, the 520 is easy to transport, easy to store and easy to paddle. With a slightly raised seat and shallower bucket you end up with a racing position where your heels are truly lower than your butt and a cockpit that fits a wide range of paddler sizes. This adds comfort and leg drive ability. The amount of hump under your knees has been reduced allowing easier draining of the bucket after swamping. With an extremely easy to use and effective bailer system paired with an ever adjustable footboard you are about to experience a truly modernized Ocean and Flat water racing machine that any paddler can enjoy.
