The new Nelo 550 Surfski is the newest evolution of surf ski from Nelo with unparalleled speed for stability. The first thing you will notice is the relatively short total length in comparison to the other Elite level Surf Ski’s on the market. This gives you easy acceleration and easier handling on a wave all while keeping the same performance you’d expect from an elite level ski. The bucket has been raised slightly giving you a racing position where your heels are truly lower than your bottom. 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 for intermediate to advanced paddlers.
