Introducing the new VTEK construction.

We’ve partnered with ICON to distribute their ICON Hydrus GT (ILS) Surfski in the new exciting VTEK construction. Manufactured by the world-leading racing kayak manufacturer, NELO.

The VTEK construction differs from the standard construction as it uses the very latest vacuum heat-cured laminating technology, producing a stronger, super-stiff and greatly refined ILS ski.

Initially, the Hydrus GT is the first model to be delivered with this special construction, but we expect to extend VTEK to the Hydrus Elite and other models in the future.

  • Minimum ILS competition weight of 18kg*
  • Maximum length 5.79m
  • Minimum width 480mm
  • Quick release foot straps

*Can be built to a lighter weight if required (min weight 14.5kg / requested weight will be aimed for but may not be exact)

VTEK Construction Features

• Designed by ICON
• Manufactured by NELO using vacuum heat-cured laminating technology
• 100% epoxy resin / PVC foam core / super-stiff construction
• Carbon reinforcements in high impact / stress areas
• Artwork included (for complex designs, contact our office for pricing)
• Adjustable leg option only (Fixed leg VTEK planned for future constructions)


With its more stable hull, the Hydrus GT gives developing paddlers the stability required for greater paddling efficiency and increased confidence, especially in surf and choppy conditions. The new VTEK construction now adds enhanced performance at this level!

• ILS-Spec Surfski competition
