Wilderness Systems Tsunami 'SP' Kayak Review
Wilderness Systems Tsunami SP ('SP' is short for Small Persons) was a fantastic addition to the white hot Tsunami line of transitional day touring kayaks.
New for 2013, Wilderness Systems has improved their already amazingly comfortable seating system! The Phase 3 AirPro seating system features a user-friendly design with ergonomic elements to increase comfort, add adjustability, and provide additional support.
Specifically designed for children and extremely small paddlers weighing as little as 50- lbs to about 100 lbs the Tsunami SP offers a narrower, small cockpit to better-fit petite paddlers. Weighing a mere 38- lbs, the feather-light Tsunami SP is as easy to handle out of the water, and onto the car, as it is a joy to paddle in. But don't let its small size fool you, as the Tsunami SP comes power packed with all the same refined safety and performance features the larger, more expensive Tsunami series kayaks have.
"Don't put your child in a short, wide box store boat. Instead, Wilderness Systems Tsunami SP is specifically designed for children and petite paddlers who demand a higher degree of safety and performance, without breaking their back... or their bank account!"
NEW 'Phase 3 AirPro XP' backband with padded Seat, adjustable padded thigh braces, SlideLock' foot brace system, VCP style bow & stern hatches, bow & stern bulkheads keeps gear in & water out, bungee deck rigging, reflective perimeter lines for increased safety and soft touch carry handles.
Important Note: Premium watertight hatches & bulkheads bow & stern on the Tsunami SP provide far greater positive floatation buoyancy then virtually 'ALL' Children's Kayaks in the marketplace today by keeping air in & water out. What's your child's safety worth?
