The FOCUS single surfski was aimed at the paddler that has spent some time on shorter entry level surfski's and now wants to move up into competitive levels of racing or fitness. The same length and profile as the top elite racing surfski's, but as userfriendly as possible. The ski was also meant to serve a range of paddler just off the elite level that wants to be competitive in all conditions. A number of features were introduced to assist with these requirements. In reducing the height volume (lowering the gunwals) , and thinning out the nose and tail of the ski, the surprising effect is that the ski is also now faster than its predecessor. The result is a surfski that spans the full range of intermediate paddler, from just off beginner to just off elite level. There are excelent examples of paddlers using the ski on both ends of the scale. See pictures and youtube interview preview on the face book page)
