Considering an elite ocean ski? The Nelo 560 is it.

The stability is very similar to the alternatives but it has possibly a lot more to offer.

Paddling Performance Review

The Nelo 560 is the latest iteration of the Nelo 560 elite model surfski. The seat has been made wider and lowered, making it more stable as well as spacious. The shorter length and more responsive acceleration makes paddling more dynamic and feels more fun.

Out of the starting gates the 560 took off, accelerating quickly from an almost stationary start to catch the first runner (who doesn't love that feeling?).

Nelo Surfski 560M

Developed for smaller or lighter paddlers. The hull is lower in height, the seat position and the cockpit have been adapted so that the paddler feels like they sit down in the water, rather than floating on top.

The 560M has a low volume helps with handling side wind, maneuverability in the surf and makes it easier to remount. It's very light yet also stable, resulting in a great boat for all conditions.

The faster acceleration is a major plus for high-speed downwind paddling, when accelerating onto waves and linking is the name of the game.

The performance of the much shorter boat across a wide range of conditions is a surprise to me and most traditional sentiment, where the longer water-line length was supposed to lead to higher speed for less effort.

For sure, the 560 has to be paddled differently, as its far twitchier than the longer skis, but my perspective is that once you master this, it feels as if this boat will catch stuff (whether big or small) that you know you wouldn't be catching in your old boat.
