Surf Ski, Swim & Board


 I sit here writing this at the 2023 Australian Titles in Perth, reminiscing on my first time ever paddling a BOS which was here 10 years ago almost to the day. Reece had just gone out on his own and had a small but fast group of athletes. I managed to get some support from Reece to get me on the ski and felt very privileged as it looked first class. New school. Creative but effective… all the best Ironmen were flying on a relatively new brand. I jumped on in Perth and no word of a lie my ski paddling went up two levels. It excited me and gave me an extra amount of confidence. I ended up getting 6th in the U19 Ironman final with ski last feeling like the world was my oyster on this razor blade of a ski. The new school ski that is just that. Always revolutionising the surf ski business and has kept in front of all other manufacturers since. It keeps me excited, grateful and energetic every time I jump on to take a stroke.
