W Kayak's hyper stability sets the new stability standards as you can
see for yourself from our demo movies.
The key is the patented combination between the stabler catamaran
design and the fact that your feet reach deep down to the bottom
of the hulls, below waterline, and you use your legs for balance and
control. For more information read our Stability
2. Choose Any Position
Naturally, you want be comfortable in your kayak but would you ever
choose to sit in the traditional L kayaking position except if you had
other choice? -Obviously not since this position is unusual and
you, and it results in fatigue, circulation problems, leg numbness and
back pains that no cushioned kayak
seat may eliminate.
This acute problem is
completely solved by our patented saddle and cockpit that offer you the
switch anytime between many comfortable positions including standing,
sitting, riding, kneeling and a variety of intermediary positions. To

3. You Want To Stay Dry
Sit-in and sit-on-top fishing kayaks hardly offer you
enough protection from the elements, whether those are wind, waves or
spray. Continuous exposure results in the infamous 'wet ride' or
'soggy bottom' experience, cold, itch and even skin inflammation a.k.a.
We think that you
shouldn't get wet just because you're fishing from a kayak: Our W Kayak
protects a 200 lb user with 15 inches of freeboard. Furthermore, the W
Kayak's saddle is self
draining in case some rain or
spray get inside the cockpit. For additional info see: surf & ocean
4. Easy Tracking And Turning
problem with traditional (monohull) kayaks is that they need to be very
long to track well and very short to turn well. If you want such a
kayak to do both you need to equip it with a cumbersome rudder, which
distracts and impedes you.
Our patented W Kayak tracks like a catamaran, and yet you can easily
lean it into the turn and make sharp turns. This is why you'll never
need to use a rudder again. Watch our demo
5. Mobility Is Key
While it's easier to launch a kayak than it is to launch a bigger boat,
launching and beaching ordinary (monohull) kayaks can
often be too difficult, especially in the surf, moving water and/or in
cold water. In addition, traditional and SOT kayaks are very limited in
over submerged and surface obstacles. Practically, this often means
that good fishing spots are inaccessible to you, and you need to paddle
longer distances just because your kayak isn't mobile enough.
These problems and others are eliminated in our W Kayak by the fact
that you can raise or lower its bow anytime you need to by simply
moving fore and aft along its longitudinal saddle (watch demo video).
Unless you launch your W kayak in the surf you don't need to step in
water since you don't have to enter its cockpit from the side, and you
can always do it from the back or the front.
6. Big, Dry & Accessible Storage
storage (or lack thereof) in fishing kayaks is an annoying
problem for many fishermen. Sit-in kayaks offer a very
restricted storage space in the cockpit that's accessible but not
really dry, and little storage space in hatches that are neither
accessible nor particularly dry. Sit-on-top (SOT) models have no
cockpit to speak of since they basically are paddle boards, which means
that apart from hatches all a SOT offers in storage
terms is its exposed deck, where any added weight increases its
In comparison, our W Kayak offers over
10 cubic feet of both dry and always accessible storage space in its
cockpit and hulls. You can
plenty of gear
on board and store heavy gear in the bottom of the
hulls without creating any stability problem.
7. Kayak Outriggers?...
be thinking about outfitting your kayak with outriggers in order to
its stability, so consider the following:
slow your boat down considerably since they have to travel at several
times their hull speed, thus creating high resistance.
Outriggers in the back of the boat offer no support when you lean
forward, and outriggers won't solve your ergonomic problems, storage
And of course, outriggers are notorious for getting your fishing lines
8. How Long A Fishing Season?
and/or weather conditions are not always favorable for kayak fishing
with a regular sit-in kayak, and even less so with a sit-on-top
kayak. This is true not only in colder regions but in warmer
climates as well.
your W Fishing Kayak keeping you dry and well protected from the
and with the ability to launch, go and beach in more places than any
kayak you can keep fishing as long as there's some open water out
there. You can also go fishing on
since our W kayak tracks better than regular kayaks do.

9. Guests On Board Your Kayak
One of the joys of owning a fishing boat is having guests on board but
regular kayaks are very limited in this regard.
Our W Kayak cockpit
offers enough room for up to two adults as long as none of them is too
heavy. Children are not a problem and they love to stand up...
10. Is Your Kayak Portable?
Compared to other boats one
of the main advantages of fishing kayaks is their portability, but an
ordinary fishing kayak is in many cases too long to fit in the truck
bed of a pickup truck, and if you want to attach it safely to your
car top you'd need to invest in a 'kayak rack'.
Our W Kayak is short
enough to be attached in the truck bed of your pickup truck, and you
can nest up to four of them on top of any regular car rack without
needing a special kayak rack.
11. The Surf: Not A Threat
most kayak fishermen and other paddlers you may think the surf is not a
good place to be in with a kayak. This is true for sit-in and
sit-on-top kayaks because of stability, maneuverability, exposure and
However, with your W Kayak you're likely to enjoy launching and going
in the surf, and maybe even playing in it - Visit the demo movies

12. What Is Speed Good For?
The ordinary sit-in and sit-on-top fishing kayak is basically a wide,
over hyped and expensive recreational boat. Its extra width inevitably
makes it slow, which is not a problem unless you want to paddle longer
distances and/or in less than perfect water and weather conditions.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted us a utility patent for ergonomic
innovations that we incorporated in our W Kayak design so you can go
faster and enjoy longer
13. Improved Casting
From the riding
position you get more power with casting or spinning, and you can
throw to longer distances than ordinary fishing kayaks allow you to:
Riding with your legs on both sides of the saddle and your feet
positioned at the bottom of the deep hulls gives you a solid and
confident feeling, and enables to put all your body legs included into
