Bourbon Orca
The ultimate surfski machine

When riding a surfski, even the most experienced paddler can become frustrated with the constant bracing in the rough.

The Point 65 Bourbon Orca changes everything. Here is a lightning fast ski that is designed for maximum speed when the conditions get real. Designed to outrun most anything while keeping it’s rider safe in the saddle through the most fearful of chop, surf, wake - you name it. Seeing your buddy or competitor disappear while you are bracing your way through the bumps is a thing of the past. It’s the combination of speed AND stability that makes the Bourbon Orca truly unique.

Award-winning design engineer and avid surf ski paddler Magnus de Brito, using highly advanced hydrodynamic design technology combined with experience and extensive testing, has managed to create a unique ski that is faster than most while comfortably stable even in the roughest conditions. The Bourbon Orca is a very fast surf ski with the aggressive appearance to match. Great primary and secondary stability offers beginners and experienced paddlers alike a fast ride, even in the most challenging conditions.

The inverted bow is inspired by it’s namesake, super advanced supply ship. Instead of moving above the level of the sea, the bow rises toward the back. This is a completely new concept named the X-Bow. Compared to a conventional bow it slopes backwards above the waterline. Tests prove lower resistance levels in comparison to standard design bows allowing for higher speeds or less energy consumption respectively. The inverted bow has substantially more buoyancy in the bow area than a conventional kayak bow. For this reason buoyancy builds immediately when the Bourbon Orca begins to enter a wave, giving it a smooth lift. For a surf ski kayak with a conventional bow and flare the equivalent buoyancy build-up starts later. This leads to decreased acceleration, and rates and amplitudes of pitching. The inverted bow reduces bow impact and slamming and provides better comfort. Tests also prove that spray water is largely reduced.

Produced in advanced composites using advanced production technology, the Bourbon Orca is available in three options:

Bourbon Orca Sport:
17kg/37,5 llb) Fibreglass/Vinylester with coremat
Bourbon Orca Pro-Lite:
15kg/33 llb) Carbon&Fibreglass/Vinylester with coremat
Bourbon Orca Ultra:
12kg/26,5llb) Carbon/Epoxy with Honeycomb core

The sculptured cockpit is an other example of out-of-the-box thinking with its innovative centered foot-step that allows you to enter the ski with your weight centered. During paddling the area seconds as storage for waterbag or a similar small dry-bag. The cockpit is designed for efficiency and comfort, with a single footwell and front deck cutaway, allowing for a closer, more powerful stroke - making those long runs feel that much sweeter.
