  PRS Surf Ski
  Posted by: TxCamellia on Feb-04-14 10:53 PM (EST)
 

I just bought a PRS Surf Ski this past September. This was the first racing/fitness boat I had ever paddled in. I have only been able to get out in the water about a dozen times and it is truly a new learning curve for me.

The way I get into the boat is to straddle it and then put one foot in at a time. I use the paddle to help balance as I am entering the boat. My boat has a foot strap and I keep the strap loose enough to help with my paddling, but not too restricting. I want to be able to slip my feet under the strap if I have to reenter the boat and not have to adjust it.

My advice from one surf ski paddler to another is to keep trying until you get to the point where paddling this boat is second nature. I have flipped over so many times I have lost count, but I am determined to feel confortable enough to paddle marathon races in this boat. It may take awhile, but in the end you will be happy that you stuck with it.

Best of Luck!!
