Wilderness Systems shaped the cockpit of the Tsunami 175 Touring Kayak for larger paddlers and gave this long-distance boat the most storage capacity of the Tsunami line'''this is the ultimate kayak for extended touring. The hull is shaped for stability and paddling efficiency, the cockpit is outfitted for comfort and support, and the hatches are watertight and spacious. Veteran paddlers or greenhorns can take on the rough water of coastal treks or the calmer conditions of extended lake trips, so slide in and push off.
