Can Nelo Surf ? was created by photofr
It's been about 6 months... and people are still asking me:
"Can Nelo surfskis SURF?"

I mean, it's a good question: Nelo's concept seems to be aiming at a reduced volume bow. The theory is that the paddler is not tossed around as much with side wind. The narrow catch makes paddling a little more pleasant too... but can it surf?!?

Well, the short answer is: absolutely!
Don't just take my words for it: here's Nelo enjoy a totally mellow day before the race.

A while back, Joep/Arjen's flame design was accessible (among others, Lotus blossoms or so, etc.) via a design software for the old Nelo surfskis on their website. This option has disappeared from the site for the new skis, while some dealers seem to have new skis ordered with the old design options. How to access the old designs, do you know?

Speak to your local Nelo representative. Nearly "anything" is possible.

I know, the old tool was just so comfy playing with colours and designs.

Yeah, but we also have to keep in mind that customized designs on the mold (not after market) take up mold time. You can build while using a mold for 2 to 3 days, but for personalized artwork, the mold is being "booked" for 4 to 7 days - depending if the artist is available or on vacation.

Construction 4: allows you to choose your ski colors at no extra charge.
Construction 7: allows you to choose your ski colors and to include personalized artwork at no extra charge.

With or without artwork, I will say Nelo skis do quite well downwind.
