There are two types of surf skis, the spec ski and the ocean ski. The ocean ski is made for long-distance ocean paddling and is usually raced downwind with the swells. Typically 5.0-6.0 meters (16½-21 ft) long and only 40–50 cm (16-20″) wide, surf skis are extremely fast when paddled on flat water (only an Olympic K1 or K2 kayak is faster) and the fastest paddled craft available over a long distance on ocean swells.
