Thanks for the great review. Just to set the record straight Todd Boreland is not the head of Revo Australia but rather our Sydney Agent and Shane is our Gold Coast agent. We look forward to getting you on a demo ski to confirm what Shane has so articulately written. ... See more
Well after 6 weeks on the REVO R2, I am happy to explain the REVO paddling experience. (Review) I spotted the Revo approximately 2 years ago surfing the net. As a avid paddler for many years and waterman enthusiasts I made contact with Aussie agent and it was still 12 months before Revo made landfall. January this year was my first paddle on a revo R2 thanks to Todd Boreland Revo agent. My current ski at the time was a Epic V14, Gibbons GRX spec Ski, V10 Double for wife and I, and a Nelo v2 K1. After a good 1hr in a decent northeast wind chop and a few unpredictable swims due to getting bucked off due to the turning ability I was hooked. Jumping back onto the V14 it felt like a V8!!! (Aircraft carrier) I was feeling stale with my Ocean Ski and was loosing fitness and gained quite a few kg’s!!. I had taken up SUP racing paddling and only enjoyed the surfing. Long mundane paddling was not my thing anymore and I needed a boost of inspiration. The most exciting thing I was looking forward to was getting my own Revo R2 and learning to paddle a new and very different Ocean Ski.!! The REVO’s are a totally different beast from the other skis. It feels like a K1 with the narrow nose and from the cockpit you can’t see the reverse bow. The R2 cockpit is the most comfortable I have paddled in and In the V14 after 20km’s leg cramps would set in. The REVO’s love a bump and surfs like no other ski I have paddled. I use less effort and energy to link runners and it’s a breeze to go left or right to find the bumps. It’s narrow nose feels like it’s going to bury into the wave in front but it doesn’t happen as the hull shape takes on a different feeling of lift and the hole ski starts to plane on top giving you less resistance to slice thru to the next runner and the next and so on. It’s amazing sensation of pure happiness and the hart rate is a lot lower due to the efficiency of this ski. It also a head of the pack heading into the chop due the the reverse bow and stream line shape you are connected to the water more thru the stroke and not slapping and bouncing around. Stability is excellent and going through broken waves is more predictable now and eats this stuff up.!! It’s truly amazing and you need to experience it to believe what these Ocean Skis are capable of. #revokayaks #revokayaksaustralia Check out my video below Thanks Shane Level 1 kayak coach Level 1 surf coach GC Downwinders Revo Gold Coast Queensland ...

First of many improvements on the way.
We got a break at a shock load at 290kgs-final product looks good - the red is the 3D printed prototype and the yellow is the first off tool sample
Todd Boreland having a great start - thanks Barry Lewin for a great race
Well done to our Revo Agent from Sydney Todd Borland on traveling to South Africa and winning the singles in the Ballito downwind.
