Surf Ski & Swim


I've been a part of the BOS team for as long as I can remember. The quality in all of their skis’ I have had over the years is second to none. It's not just the finish of the craft that is impressive, but I have also put my craft through some of the most testing surf conditions around and its durability has always stood the test of time.
