Gabe Newton – TEAM FENN

Fenn Kayaks

Ocean Paddlesports is pleased to announce that Gabe Newton has become a Fenn supported surfski racer. Gabe will kick-off this new chapter in his racing career this weekend by racing his first Molokai World Championships in a Fenn Elite.  Gabe spent several weeks this winter in South Africa training with some of the top racers in the sport and was able to test the full line-up of Fenn surfski in downwind & open ocean conditions.  He was impressed with the performance of the Fenn Swordfish in downwind conditions and the overall top performance of the Fenn Elite & Fenn Elite SL as top-end performance driven machines.  Gabe, still a relative newcomer to the sport of surfski, comes from a long background of whitewater and competitive freestyle kayaking.  He had a break through season last year and was able to demonstrate his speed both on flat as well as downwind condition and he is primed this year to make the next jump onto the international surfski circuit.  We look forward to having such a strong ambassador of the sport on Team Fenn and have his Carbon Fenn Elite SL awaiting his return from Hawaii.

  1. Go Gabe! (Paddled with Gabe a number of times on our favorite downwind Millers Run here in Cape Town…!) He’s going to have a blast today in Hawaii… NOAA forecast says 20kt Easterly today – which will make for perfect conditions…
