Tahe Marine Wind 535 Kayak Review

The Wind 535 kayak from Tahe Marine is a high performance sea kayak that has been designed to enhance acceleration and maximize speed.

The shallow vee-shaped hull and narrow beam provide sharp entry lines for the kayak while limiting resistance on the water. A minimal amount of rocker at the ends accentuates the water line to improve tracking and lower the sheer line to be less hindered by wind and weather cocking.

The larger cockpit size and well-positioned thigh braces on the Wind 535 kayak provides paddlers with a proper fit within the boat giving you complete control on the water. Despite the narrower beam, the higher volume in the fore-deck makes the Wind 535 kayak suitable for medium-to large-sized paddlers in the 160 lbs – 235 lbs range.

Tahe Marine's Wind 535 kayak includes two spacious oval hatches bow and stern for ample gear storage, while the mini day pod is excellent for smaller items like snacks, GPS systems, or small electronics. Given the gear capacity along with the kayak's efficiency, the Wind is perfect for expeditions, races, or fitness-oriented day trips.

The Wind 535 kayak features a smart rudder system with gas pedal style foot braces AND a drop-down skeg. Having both course correction devices offers versatility in high winds or conditions with heavy boat traffic and/or currents to keep the boat on track and maximize efficiency.
