Wesley Echols of Rhode Island, USA announced today the launch of a new US surfski website -  Apart from the stories and info, Wesley has also launched a Getting Started Informational DVD which includes useful information on what to look for and consider when buying a new ski.


"The site will have a regional flavor focusing on the races we have here in New England, the northeast, and the east coast," said Wesley. "It will become the go to site for all the race info, equipment reviews including all the skis I have owned/raced, training, pics, interviews, clinics, blog and more.

"The feedback has extremely positive with all the people I have spoken to over the last month or so. The site will continue to grow as we get more content. We are kicking around some ideas to make the site even better.

"Be sure to take a look at the boat reviews (my opinion only). Send us your paddler profile with a picture so we can add it. The Event/Calendar tab is in its infancy stage but you will get the idea what we are trying to do.

"If you see text on the various pages then scroll and click, and they are linked to articles, pics, etc. We also have a blog linked from the Home page, where we will be posting current events, happenings, or just paddling stories.

"The dvd, Surfski Basics Volume 1, is in its final stage, and will available very soon to purchase from the web site. A short trailer is on the home page while a 2 minute trailer is on the Dvd page.

"Please send us links, pics, albums, articles that are relevant to surfskiing, paddling, training, racing, calendars, or just an experience you had while paddling.

"I want to thank everyone for their feedback and suggestions. Keep them coming. I want to thank my friends Chris Chappell and Mark Ceconi for their countless hours on the web site. Chris has really made this happen. Lastly thanks to Erik Borgnes and Bill Leconte for their articles.

We at welcome Wesley's initiative and wish him and his team every success!  Go check it out: Go!
