Nordic Kayaks Squall

Fast & stable surfski for a wide range of use

The Nordic Kayaks Squall is best described as a stable fitness ski. Fast and fun with great responsiveness in waves. Although the boat is a little wider at 49cm, the cutout on the side of the cockpit allows for a tight paddle entry and to paddle with speed.

This competitive surfski has an exceptional balance between stability and speed.
It is easier to remount (re-entry into open water) than most of the others. The cockpit comes with our new features such as a bottle holder, carbon side handles and a very comfortable ergonomic seat.

The Squall 580 has the long cockpit and fits paddlers from 165cm to approx. 200cm and more. The Squall 540 has the short cockpit and fits paddlers from approx. 155cm to 195cm.

Equipment

  • deBrito Self Bailer
  • carbon fiber footrest with self adjusting lines made for easy length adjustment

  • packing net on back deck
  • NK/deBrito rudder control yoke for optimal smooth steering
  • carbon side handles

Autoclave Prepreg Technology

All boats at NK are made with prepreg carbon in an autoclave. This is one of the most expensive and complex production processes and is not yet widespread in the kayak world.

Due to the homogeneous material distribution of prepregs and the high, precisely defined temperatures and pressures in the autoclave, the surfski and kayaks achieve extreme strength with low weight.

The individual layers form a very intensive connection, which ensures a very long service life and high reliability of the kayaks. The technology is otherwise used in space travel or Formula 1 and in Ramumbel.

„The Nordic Kayaks surfski is outstanding when it comes to seating comfort, design and construction. NK is also special to me since it’s a small brand made by nice people from Sweden.“
