Normally balance and speed are related: the fastest boat is also more unstable… That was the challenge, having a racing boat that was as fast as the 560 but as stable as the 550.

About the Boat

The rules say that typically longer skis have more wet surface but usually better friction.

Even so, we developed the new 560 with reduced wet surface but with great friction performance, being so the advantage of the smaller wet surface overcomes a small increase on the friction resistance, resulting on a faster ski in all conditions.

Due to its dimensions the maneuverability of the ski is better as changing direction and surfing waves becomes easier; the weight can be maintained whilst building a stiffer ski and for last but not less important as transport regulations become stricter one shorter ski can be transported without problem on a normal car roof rack.

How to Setup your Nelo Boat

The Perfect trim

As with any high-performance machine, there is an ideal configuration where our boats are at peak efficiency, specifically with the angle of attack (pitch). This guide will help you trim your boat in order to be at that perfect angle when at speed.

  • Check the table and images below to find the right measures for your boat size. That’s how you find the optimum static rending.
  • Using a marker trace a small straight line, according to the right measure indicated in the table, on the bow for the static line;
  • With the boat stopped, adjust your seat and footrest position so that the static line is levelled with the waterline. At that point is the Optimum Static Rending.

The measures we provide are for the median weight for each boat size (80 kg on an L, for example). So if you are on the limits of the boat’s weight range, the line will be over or under water, but the most important is that the static line is still levelled with the waterline.

These ideal trims were the result of real-world testing and CFD analysis, under optimal conditions: flat water, constant speed, no wind, and average water temperature. Meaning that these results may not apply to other scenarios.
