David and Svetlana from Melbourne, in a W kayak –
David is a commercial airplane pilot with an eye for technical detail and safety. Both Dave and Svetlana recently rented a SOT kayak, but they thought they deserve something better, and tested the Wavewalk at Lake Eppalock just outside of Bendigo.
What Dave first noticed was the stability and comfort that the W provided, and said: -“It is incredibly stable, even with both of us on it – we were even able to physically turn around and stand up. Not only was it stable and felt safe, given the height out of the water we were able to enjoy the views more readily”.
David spoke about how Svetlana encountered a spider in the kayak but was able to manoeuvre quite easily to avoid it. This created an interesting moment with Dave saving the day!
David commented that the W kayak “has excellent turning, and was easy to paddle which was aided by the longer paddle and the height out of the water. It moved a lot faster than the SOT, and felt so much easier to paddle” Both also loved the comfort and ergonomic design and are looking forward to their next W kayak adventure.
Overall both gave the W kayak a Thumbs Up!
