Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Wave Sport Ethos Nine Crossover Kayak - The Wavesport Ethos is a stable, forgiving, performance-minded crossover kayak. With more whitewater performance attributes than other designs in this category, the Ethos kayak offers a confidence-building introduction to paddling in up to class III whitewater. The hull is maneuverable in rapids, yet tracks well on flat water with the help of a dropdown skeg system. The Ethos offers outstanding comfort on long, multi-day river treks due to the roomy cockpit, sizeable gear-storage space, and Wave Sportâ??s new, highly adjustable outfitting system. Key performance features include a full whitewater auto-adjusting foot brace system, an adjustable leglifter, a whitewater-focused rocker profile and a progressive chine that helps beginners learn the feeling of "edging" in a stable, reliable design. Arched bow and stern soft grip security handles provide an ergonomic fit for comfortable carrying without underlying scoop-outs to hinder water shedding. These handles sit high on the deck for greater accessibility in a rescue situation. Another key feature includes a drain plug positioned near the cockpit for quick, easy draining â?? even while carrying. Grip zones behind the cockpit make pushing out of the boat easy. Beginners who seek to explore varying environments with one comfortable boat while progressing their skill sets can enjoy the Ethos confidence-building features in up to class III rapids. Seasoned paddlers will find the Ethos easy to roll and enjoy the ample storage space on long days or multi-day river treks without sacrificing performance.
