Slide into the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 140 Kayak when the surf snarls or you see whitecaps on the lake. This ruddered boat makes steering across choppy open water simple and slipping through twisty inlets downright gleeful. Since this kayak is smack-dab in the middle of the Tsunami family of 'yaks, almost every size and every level of paddler feels at home in the 140. Deliberate design elements imbue this baby with stability and durability so you'll be cruising harbors and dancing through rock gardens in the Tsunami 140 for years to come. The polyethylene hull shape takes it easy on burgeoning boaters and lets soggy river rats push their limits as well. The moderate V-shaped keel line keeps you on the straight and narrow when you plow across placid ponds. Multiple chines give you a stable platform when you first board the boat. Chines also create walls on your kayak, which makes tipping tough and tracking sublime, not to mention giving the plastic hull an extra shot of durability. A BTS rudder takes this easy-tracking boat and transforms it into a laser-guided missile under the steerage of a veteran paddler, and novice 'yakkers get an instant shot of confidence Three bulkheads, stern, midship, and bow, offer you the ability to turn this 'yak into a cargo boat for a weekend camping trip along the water. Domed rubber hatch covers protect dry bags from an accidental flip as well as limit the amount of water your boat will take on. The Phase 3 AirPro Tour seat gives you a highly adjustable ride and a finely tuned fit. Fore and aft on-deck rigging lets you keep a few things at your fingertips. Say you've stowed your fly rod on deck and you've found the perfect place: secure your stick in the paddle park, grab your rod, and practice casting from a seated position.
A straight shooter. Around a campfire, this flask serves up a straight shot of your favorite spirit. Made with odorless and tasteless stainless steel, the interior won't mix good whiskey with the aroma of last month's Jager mistake. The slim profile slides flat into a pocket for discretion, and an engravable base provides room for a few words ? for those occasions that require more than a toast.
Built to paddle smoothly to the far shore, the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 140 kayak with rudder shines with versatility. Novice and seasoned paddlers alike will enjoy the responsive performance of the hybrid hull shape of the Tsunami; it's designed to track smoothly on longer day trips. Multichined, V-shape hull strikes a nuanced balance and combines excellent stability with remarkable tracking on smooth lakes, wind-sheltered bays and slow-moving rivers. When piloted by an experienced paddler, the versatile hull also negotiates chop and wind-it's a smooth, fun ride suited to a wide range of abilities. Hull is crafted in high-density polyethylene for amazing durability and easy care. Foot-pedal-controlled rudder system with cockpit deployment controls helps you steer and track effectively. Phase 3 Air Pro Tour seat offers excellent comfort and intuitive adjustments. Mesh stretched over contoured foam forms a perforated pad; large holes enhance airflow, and small holes enhance support for sit bones and lower back. Scalloped, contoured seat pan cradles and cushions legs, and backrest conforms to you and flexes a bit with every paddle stroke. Icons show what each adjustment strap does, and all control points are forward of the paddler and centrally located to reduce strain. Leg lifter uses handle to shore up space below your legs; back strap lowers seat back, and the angle of back rest is adjustable as well. Small gear bag under seat features a gear clip and enough capacity for a water bottle or extra food. Rear bungee cords lock seat back forward during transport. Keepers footbraces adjust to maximize comfort, personalizing your paddling experience and ensuring optimal paddling position. Stern hatch, bow hatch and small midship day hatch all have bulkheads to keep gear dry and secure. Domed hatch covers offer a rugged watertight seal and an easy-to-remove tabs.
Built for both small water and big, the Tsunami 140 is an easy kayak for beginners to master and a nice day tripper for more experienced paddlers.To ship free to one of 33 New England stores or for any questions call Customer Service 888-463-6367
