Submitted: 11-25-2011 by bill

this review is for a demo paddle i did on a carbon swordfish. i paddled it about a mile or less. i usually paddle a westside wave exceed which is 18 inch beam same as fenn swordfish. length about the same also.

exceed weighs 27 pounds, the swordfish carbon is 25 pounds. i owned a fenn millennium in the past and loved the boat except it would rub a lot of skin off my back after about 8 miles of racing. i was hoping to find a surfski that handled and felt like my exceed.

the swordfish seemed to be equivalent to the exceed but ... i did not paddle it 8 miles so for all i know it will rub the skin off my back! the millennium also felt good short distances. i guess you pay your $ and take your chances, i wish i could rent one for a day and see. the build quality is good and i like the seating position.

the huki's i have tried seem like i am sitting in a deep hole - the swordfish did not feel that way. i have never tried an epic surfski because the local epic dealer never has one to demo. not sure what is up with that but after years of trying i have given up on epic. not sure they want to sell me one! maybe they are smart...:-) happy paddling!
