Tahe Marine Wind Solo 16/7 Kayak Review

The Wind Solo 16/7 kayak from Tahe Marine is a high performance sea kayak that has been designed to enhance acceleration and maximize speed. Considered the little brother to the Wind 535, the Wind Solo caters to smaller paddlers who desire a quick boat that fits them properly.

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 narrow beam and well-positioned thigh braces on the Wind Solo provides paddlers with a proper fit within the boat giving you complete control on the water. Given its low volume in the fore-deck, the Wind solo kayak suitable for small-to medium-sized paddlers in the 120 lb – 180 lb range.

Tahe Marine's Wind Solo 16/7 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 shorter expeditions, races, or fitness-oriented day trips.

The Wind Solo features a drop-down skeg for course correction in high winds or conditions with heavy boat traffic and/or currents to keep the boat on track and maximize efficiency.

  • Two oval VCP style hatches bow & stern including centre day pod
