The Wave Deflector is a piece of equipment that no serious downwind paddler should be without. This simple but very effective tool keeps excess water out of your cockpit by deflecting the flow as it pours over your surfski’s nose and front deck. This is of course an obvious benefit.
The Wave Deflector comes with a sticky tape that can be used to place on your ski. We recommend adding clear tape over the top to ensure it stays on even in the biggest of downwinds!
One can also use velcro for an easier to “put on and remove” option. Others have gone the permanent route and use epoxy.
