Wilderness Systems Tsunami 135 Kayak Review
Wilderness Systems Tsunami 135 Kayak is specifically designed for small and medium sized female kayakers in the 99 to 155 lb range. The narrowest kayak in the popular Tsunami Series, its slimmed down in width, smaller cockpit and lower deck height better enables shorter paddlers to efficiently use a less strenuous “low angle paddle stroke”. The end result is a more comfortable, better fitting and a superior paddling experience for smaller framed paddlers.
Wilderness Systems Tsunami 135′s ingenious multi-chined, ‘V’-shaped hull fuses tight tracking with exceptional initial and well defined secondary stability for outstanding over all performance.
Easy for beginners to master yet still satisfying for paddlers with more seasoned paddling skills. Our ‘Test Paddler Team’ agree the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 135 is part of one of most versatile polyethylene touring series created.
Wilderness Systems Premium Phase 3 Tour outfitting is widely considered the best in the industry offering paddlers unmatched custom comfort and adjustability that’s perfect for short outings or weekend treks.
The 135 successfully combines the storage capacity of wider kayaks with the efficiency similar to many longer, narrower touring kayaks. An excellent choice for both beginners and intermediate paddlers, this slim and responsive kayak is one of the most celebrated designs in the day-touring market today.
“Smaller, sleeker, price point touring kayak? Wilderness Systems Tsunami 135 Kayak should be near the top of every smaller paddlers list for those seeking a boat capable of skills development. The Tsunami 135 successfully fuses recreational kayak stability with touring level efficiency and outfitting.”
