Video: Big Air Waveski Tricks

Waveski surfer Pablo Arrouays catches massive air on small waves in France

Waveskiers launch off the back of waves to catch huge air and perform aerial tricks and re-entry moves. A waveski is similar to a surf kayak except that a waveski is a sit-on-top that uses a system of straps instead of a closed cockpit to keep the paddler connected to the board.

In this video, Pablo Arrouays rides a promodel from Rod’s Surfboards. At 196 x 60 cm, this board is a bit of a change in waveski shape, and the amount of air he’s able to catch makes a good case for the new model.
