Performance Sea Kayak Info
Kayak versus Ski
It is difficult to make a direct comparison between events undertaken by Sea Kayak and those completed on Ocean Skis.
Both kayaks and skis have advantages and dis-advantages over the other. To this end we have included separate details for both types of craft; we make no claim for the merits of one craft over the other.
At the end of the day fast is fast whatever you paddle.
Open water paddling carries very significant risks - Performance Sea Kayak do not condone or encourage open water paddling in craft not designed specifically for such purposes, or for those without the neccesary skills and experience.
No records or times will be accepted for persons paddling craft other than those specifically designed for use in open ocean paddling.
That means sea kayaks or ocean skis designed specifically for open ocean paddling which are designed to be unsinkable through the inclusion of water-tight dry compartments and bulkheads within the original design.
