A great balance between fun and fast.

Stable and quick - the Nelo 550 is able to be used in a range of conditions. This model will appeal to paddlers looking for comfort safety, stability and speed. It has enough balance to ensure paddlers feel comfortable in bigger waves.

As with the other Nelo Surfskis, the shorter length makes it more manoeuvrable, more responsive and fun. It fits safely on the car and in most garages (but remember to take it off the roof before you drive in, if the cars is low!)

There's a 550 model for everyone, with M, ML and L sizes (which relate to the weight of the paddler). The small sizes are great for shorter leg lengths too. 

Available in two constructions, Type 4 and Type 7, with Type 7 about 1kg lighter.

The Nelo 550 has the same easy to use footrest system as 510, 520 and 560 etc  – which you an adjust quickly even while you're sitting in it.

I adjusted the balier to the first position with my heel easily (slightly open) and wound up the cadence for the next runner. Sliding easily down this, I used a lighter touch on the pedals and soon I was able to switch the boat back and forth easily, linking runners far more nimbly than I was ever able to do with the longer boats.
