Glide and dance your way across the water.
If only your drunken self had the style and maneuverability of the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 125 Kayak, then maybe you wouldn't end up losing to Gill in the disco dance-off every week. Gill, what's so special about that guy, anyway? Well, now you can show him what's up, since this touring kayak cruises across lakes and explores inland bays with ease and grace that he can only dream of. And, unlike awkward memories of dance contests past that luckily fade away, the Tsunami is crafted from fade- and warp-resistant polyethylene.
Moderately rockered up front for a bit of buoyancy in choppy water, smooth chines and defined lines give paddlers of all powers the security of a stable ride. The profile isn't just about steadiness though; the sleek lines mean your strokes aren't squandered as the Tsunami glides effortlessly across the lake. The deeper-set hull makes the cockpit downright roomy.
The Phase 3 AirPro Tour seating system gives your butt and back a soft ride for an all-day paddle, several days in a row. Adjustable foot braces and thigh braces let you dial in a perfect fit to enhance on-water contentment. Between the bow and stern hatches and on-deck rigging, you've ample storage space for a weekend of camping and exploring the multiple islands peppered throughout the lake. Soft Touch carry handles won't worry your palms.

- Q & A
Went to a local paddlefest and test-paddled a whole host of options. This was raved about by the reps and suited our needs perfectly as 1 of 3 boats that we ended up buying for our family.
This one is for our teenage son. He LOVES the efficiency, comfort and tracking; and is especially pleased that he can paddle faster than me in my Pungo.
Great in-between kayak
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I live in New England and frequently kayak a mix of flat water and larger rivers (the Connecticut, mainly) and this is a great boat for that type of paddling. It tracks well, the seat is comfortable for long days on the water, and there is ample storage for overnights or weekend treks. It's light enough for accessing short carry-in lakes and portaging is a breeze. If you live in an area with plenty of flat water and don't want a huge boat, the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 125 is perfect.
