The ideal introduction to surfski paddling

Stellar Surfski 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 surf ski takes into account the USCA regulations for fast sea kayaks!

In the multisport layup (Carbon-Kevlar bottom), this model weighs only 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 attachments, side carry handles, bottle cage, leash attachment and deck bungees remain standard on the Stellar S18S.
