If you tip over, your choices are limited. (a) eskimo roll your kayak and continue to paddle. (b) Swim back to shore towing your kayak full of water and freeze to death, empty the water, remount, continue paddling.. © know how to empty your boat in deeper water, remount, keep emptying your boat, freeze a little more, continue to paddle.
1/2 mile from shore (SURFSKI)
You get wet, you remount, you continue.

After paddling skis for a couple of years here in the Bay and meeting Mark and crew out at Northwest Island a few years back the seed was sown for a craft that would take me further and a reasonable turn of speed with a bit of storage but with a deck configuration that suited tropical paddling, was easy to remount and forgiving enough for a novice kayak paddler.My journey led me to the Freeride from Mirage.
I guess there will always be a bit of Kayak Vs Ski rivalry but why not have the best of both worlds (almost).
