Why it started?
The sport of Waveski surfing in South Africa was dominated by a single board manufacturer with no restraint on price of a board and accessories, which became unreasonable! Competition was desperately needed. A single brand existence is a disservice to the sport, there was no development for entry level and stability for new waveski surfers, sole focus was spent on competitive boards which shrunk the sport and killed the fun for new surfers.
High performance boards are necessary for the top performers, as much as entry level boards are for stability, pleasant and fun surfing.
Since Viking has come into the market, Prices have dropped dramatically, to reasonable affordable levels and with a wider range available to new people to trial and enjoy the sport.
Viking waveski offers board at real VALUE and with an improved better quality gloss finish!
