The .5 Micro
2006 will see at least five new surf skis on the market in South Africa (a single and a double from Fenn Kayaks; a double from Custom Kayaks and two new singles from Epic). But all of these, and indeed all the existing models, are designed for adults. In K1, there are various "guppy" kayaks - where are the surf skis for kids?

Answer: there aren't any. [It's been pointed out to me that Stealth Performance Products in Durban, South Africa sell a kid's ski called a "Stealth Junya". To see their product range, click here.]
