Wilderness Systems Tsunami 145 w/Rudder Kayak Review
Wilderness Systems Tsunami 145 Kayak is the widest member of the popular Tsunami Series of day touring kayaks. The 145's deeper hull and wider beam ensure a roomy cockpit, perfect for larger paddlers in the 180 lb to 245 lb weight range seeking comfort in a mid-length kayak without totally sacrificing performance.
A shallow v hull combines with multi-chined sides to create a stability level and tracking, which is higher than what's available in most kayaks in its category. The full bow creates lift, which raises the front of the kayak up and over large waves instead of plowing into them.
The innovative design of the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 145 kayak successfully fuses recreational kayak stability with touring type outfitting and efficiency. Easy for beginners to master yet still satisfying for paddlers with more seasoned paddling skills. Our 'Test Paddler Team' agree the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 145 is part of one of most versatile polyethylene day touring kayaks ever created.
Wilderness Systems recently improved their already amazingly comfortable seating system! The Phase 3 AirPro seating system now features a user-friendly design with ergonomic elements to increase comfort, add adjustability, and provide additional support.
