The ideal introduction to surfski paddling

Stellar Surf Ski S18S

The S18S has been optimized for efficient paddling: the hull construction and the narrow bow bring speed with the high stability you are used to from Stellar. This makes this surf ski suitable for advanced paddlers who either want a sporty training device or are just starting out with surf skiing. The S18S can also be used as an "open" kayak for competitions and marathons.

This surfski takes into account the USCA regulations for fast sea kayaks!

In the multisport layup (lower hull carbon-kevlar) weighs this model only weighs 16 kilos and is less sensitive to ground contact.

Features include carbon handles at both ends and a large oval cargo hatch at the rear. The comfort, rear accessories, side handles, bottle cage, leash attachment and deck bungees are still standard on the Stellar S18S.

The S18S Exp Surfski has these advantages

The Stellar S18S describes the transition from more advanced paddling to surfskiing. It is the ideal surf ski for beginners in this sport and offers interesting features:

High stability

With a width of 51.2 cm and a length of 550 cm, this surf ski allows you to experience the flow with the wave and offers a lot of safety.

Suitable for touring

The "Expedition" version is characterized by the luggage hatch and nets, which also allow you to take equipment with you.


Well integrated seating position. Easily controllable in every situation. For a surf ski, the S18S is easy to maneuver at 550 cm.

Training and marathon

The S18 Surfski is also popular for participating in kayak marathons because it is faster and lighter than many kayaks.

Clear cockpit

Everything in direct access: drinking bottle holder, bailer, rudder, adjusting the footrests, luggage net directly behind the seat.


This surfski has a lot of propulsion and wants to move forward quickly, but always offers a plus in safety.
