Sundance Company & Teide Pty Ltd have just announced they will be importing & distributing the Knysna Racing Kayaks Jester junior surf-ski and Knysna Racing Kayaks kids range of paddles to both the local Australia & New Zealand markets.
When we spoke with him Andrew Sneddon of Sundance Company told us “Our aim is to grow the sport of surfski paddling from the grass roots up as we want more kids enjoying the beautiful waters of Aus & NZ.”
The Jester is manufactured by Knysna Racing in South Africa, and is reported to be suited to junior and smaller build paddlers. Knysna’s website states that the Jester has been designed for both wave riding, flat water and bumpy conditions.
When describing the Jester Sneddon stated that “The Jester junior surf-ski models adds another exciting surf-ski product to the local Australian and New Zealand paddle sport industry at a price that may be hard for existing manufacturers to match.”
Carlos Perez says “The Jester is a fun ski aimed at kids, ladies and smaller paddlers, has a fully adjustable footplate which can accommodate paddlers up to 1.78m in height, is available in Glass vacuum layup which comes in at just 13kg, is extremely stable, and is available in eight exciting colours“.
Key benefits the Knysna Jester offers include:
- Fully adjustable (up to 1.78m paddler)
- Glass vacuum 13kg
- Very stable
- 4.57m long
- 48.5cm wide
- Available in 8 different deck colours
We shall look forward to spending some time one the water with this new surfski and to the opportunity to paddling it and offering our initial thoughts and a combination of a follow up articles including:
- Gear Review
- Photo Gallery
- Paddler Story
- Race Review
We’re lining up a few junior paddlers and smaller frame guys and girls to try it out and get a feel for it, and we’re shooting some stunning photos to post in a gallery of paddler eye candy for you.
We will also be sending one or more of the team to their nearest Blast Paddlers time trial, to put the new Knysna Jester junior surfski through its paces in race conditions under the clock, and posting an official computer timed result over 10km for all to see.
