Drop the rudder and paddle this performance touring boat far from shore.
Quick on the water and roomy in the cockpit, the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 145 Kayak with Rudder is the ideal balance of comfort and efficiency, and it now comes with a drop-down rudder to keep you on the straight and narrow. Inherent Wilderness Systems stability is evident as the multi-chined hull keeps this boat on an even keel in the event that the wind stirs up swells or you're trying to turn on an edge.
A touring hull design means the Tsunami slices through water with the speed and stealth of the latest military boondoggle. At least in this case nobody will be on the hook for a billion dollars per vehicle. The moderate V on the bottom offers outstanding initial tracking ability, and multiple chines create sidewall rigidity. Not only does this extend the life of your boat, but multi-chines enhance primary and secondary stability, tipping is tricky while tracking gets glorious. The BTS rudder takes this already-awesome tracking boat and converts it into a screaming arrow of directed speed, regardless of water conditions. In concert, the hull design and rudder let long-time paddlers and novices alike enjoy a stable touring platform.
The Phase 3 AirPro Tour seat adjusts for a custom fit and can be tweaked mid-paddle to relieve fatigue following a full day of paddling. Finish off the perfect fit by adjusting the Keeper footbraces to find the perfect paw-resting position for maximally powerful paddling. Three hatches offer storage galore for an extended tour, and the domed rubber covers offer some protection when the wind brings spray across the boat. On-deck rigging in front and in back puts the bare necessities at your fingertips.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This is a great kayak, stars easily, very stable. However the condition it arrived in will stop me from ever getting another online again. Poor quality shipping, only a thin plastic bag on it, has big chunks dug out of the hull, someone dragged this across the ground leaving a large flat spot in the keel. Took weeks to arrive and if I sent it back may not get to kayak this season. Purchase from a store, don't buy online, you will be disappointed. Unfortunately this site will not allow me to upload pictures from my gallery.
Got the goat leading the way!

I have had Tsunami kayaks for years i started out with the 120 and recently upgraded to the 145 with the rudder. They are great all around kayaks, they are perfect for everything from day trips to week long camping trips.
