Designed specifically for the intermediate paddler, the Fenn Swordfish S Surf Ski is more stable than an elite ski but with top end speed, filling the void between the shorter Fenn XT and longer Fenn Elite ocean racing skis. The Swordfish's turning and handling is superb, giving the ski a real feeling of agility, coupled with a reassuring stability and steadiness. With a snug and deep fit seatwell smaller than the XT, the ski has a bold ridge running down the centre of the hull to just behind the seatwell, providing straight handling and tracking, as well as helping the ski hold its line on runs and when surfing.
The new "S" modifications include a more fitted seat, lower footwell and less hump between footwell and seat. The whole cockpit set up has been moved forward along with the rudder, as well as more angle on the footplate and a new leg leash attachment point near the base of the footwell.
