Wilderness Systems Tsunami 140 Kayak Review
Wilderness Systems Tsunami 140 Kayak is slightly narrower and offers a lower deck than its larger sibling the Tsunami 145 to better fit a wide range of medium to large sized paddlers.
The popular Tsunami line of innovative day touring kayaks successfully blends recreational kayak stability with touring boat outfitting and efficiency. The Tsunami’s unique flared, multi-chined hull provides a ‘very high’ degree of initial stability while also enhancing tracking performance.
Wilderness Systems Tsunami 140 Kayaks large fit range helps make it the best selling member of the Tsunami Series of touring kayaks. A large roomy cockpit allows easy entry and exit. Wilderness Systems amazingly adjustable seat system combines with adjustable thighbraces to create the good contact points required to refine your paddling skills.
A shallow vee hull combines with multi-chined sides to create a stability level and tracking, which is higher than what’s available in most kayaks in its category. The full bow creates lift, which raises the front of the kayak up and over large waves instead of plowing into them.
The innovative design of the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 140 Kayak successfully fuses recreational kayak stability with day touring type outfitting and efficiency. Easy for beginners to master yet still satisfying for paddlers with more seasoned paddling skills. Our ‘Test Paddler Team’ agree the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 140 is part of one of most versatile polyethylene day touring kayaks ever created.
