The REVO lutionary Surfski

 In Reviews

Yacht designer, Greg De Beyer, has put his thinking cap on and come up with a very novel REVO lutionary surfski shape. Greg is not a paddler but he has turned this weakness into a strength. Not being influenced by traditional surfski design thinking has allowed Greg a fresh perspective. His back ground in boat building, particularly catamaran design is evident in the Revo. The reverse bow and hard chines are straight out of the cutting edge America’s Cup Cat designs.

The Revo has a reverse bow and hard chines running back from the cockpit to the tail. This gives the hull a very flat underneath section which should allow the hull to plane and give it significant stability with out compromising speed.

I have yet to paddle the boat so look out for in depth review once I have had the pleasure. Knowing Greg from my yachting days has given me an inside look into the dev of this head turning ski. More info shortly on the their website.

    How do I get one in NZ & for what leg length is it best suited for and I am 100kg 195cm tall. I am on Epic V10 ultra at the moment so what is the length of the ski?

      Hi Grant – your weight is not an issue. Neither is your height unless your legs are very long relative to your upper body. The Revo guy will also be able to customise the foot plate assembly to squeeze a few more cm’s of adjustment. revokyaks.com

      Hi Neil – a handful of Revo’s have just left SA for NZ. get hold of Revo via revokayak.com and ask who the NZ agent is. There are definitely boats headed your way.

      Hi Mike, I think they are. I know, they will send one if you want but there is not a U.K. Agent set up yet. If you know anyone who maybe interested ask them to get in touch with mavric at revokayaks dot com I have been paddling the Revo 1 and Revo 2 quite a bit lately and they are amazing ski’s. The most active place to get up to date Intel is the FB page ” Revo Kayaks Cape Town. The revokayaks.com website is about to be relaunched in the next 2 weeks I am told.
