Those who try a Mazu will notice the acceleration and speed normally reserved for the Olympic Kayaking fraternity.
Compared to other surfski’s on the market, MAZU is typically shorter in length and lighter. This makes them more nimble in ocean conditions, able to take off on every run and turn with ease through the waves. The lighter weight makes them more responsive. The seating position is slightly forward and the foot position lower than the seat. Experienced paddlers will recognise the advantage of this for catching runs in the ocean, wash-riding in races, and long term comfort and less fatigue.
