Wilderness Systems Tsunami 135 Kayak Review
One of Wilderness Systems most popular day-touring kayaks the Tsunami 135 has been specifically designed for small to medium sized female kayakers in the 99 lb to 155 lb range. Slimmed down in width and offering a smaller cockpit sitting area the Tsunami 135 also provides a lower deck height, which better enables shorter paddlers to efficiently use a less strenuous “low angle paddle stroke”. The end result is a more comfortable, better fitting kayak and a superior paddling experience for smaller framed paddlers.
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.
On the water the Tsunami 135's ingenious multi-chined, 'V'-shaped hull fuses tight tracking and exceptional initial and well defined secondary stability for outstanding over all performance. Wilderness Systems NEW Premium Phase 3 Tour outfitting is widely considered the best in the industry, offering paddlers unmatched custom comfort and adjustability that’s perfect for short outings or weekend treks. The 135 successfully combines the storage capacity of wider kayaks with the efficiency similar to many longer, narrower touring kayaks. An excellent choice for both novice and advanced paddlers, this slim and responsive kayak is one of the most celebrated designs in the day-touring market today.
"Smaller, lighter and sleeker, Wilderness Systems Tsunami 135 should be at the top of every small kayakers list for those seeking a superior day touring kayak, capable of handling skills development."
Wilderness Systems NEW 'Phase 3 Tour' multi-adjustable seat system, adjustable padded thigh braces, 'SlideLock' foot brace system, VCP style bow & stern hatches, bow & stern bulkheads to effectively keep gear in & water out, an 8- inch day hatch mid-ship, paddle holder, bungee deck rigging, reflective perimeter safety lines and soft touch carry handles. The addition of a Sliding Rudder System is optional.
Notes: Wilderness Systems Tsunami 135 tracks exceptionally well, accordingly we suggest you SAVE YOUR $$$ by 'NOT' adding the Rudder System for the Gen2 Polyethylene version.
Adding a foot controlled Rudder System increases the boats weight 3- lbs to 51- lbs and costs $220.
Wilderness Systems Tsunami 135 is available in a glossy, lighter weight composite 'PRO' version.
