First Wavewalk – Kayak Review By Mike Moody, North Dakota

When I first saw my Wavewalk it was love at first sight. I have to mention that I’ve been researching and reviewing the Wavewalk for about 18 months and finally decided to buy one. If anyone reading this has hesitated, please do yourself a favor and just get a Wavewalk. It’s worth every penny!

Well, when I first took it out the wind was blowing so I had to wait until the next day for my maiden voyage. At first I thought the Wavewalk was a bit tippy but then I realized that was just me, not the Wavewalk. I’m not a small guy (265 lbs) and after about 20 minutes, I was standing up fishing from my Wavewalk. Yeah, I got a bit off balance but as I had read, I just sat down and I was instantly fine. Then a boat went by threw a wake at me, and I was a bit worried but that was easy too.
I’ve listed some items that make the Wavewalk wonderful:

· The ability to move your leg position at will

· The ability to stand and stretch when needed

· The ability to lay back and relax when the mood strikes you

· The way you can rig the Wavewalk to your own liking. I will give some advice here, don’t do anything permanent until you’ve been out a handful of times

· The peace and quiet of a day on the water without a motor

· How easy it is to launch and beach the Wavewalk

· How easy it is to paddle into the lily pads and ambush largemouth bass with topwater lures!

I’ve attached a couple pictures for you.
Oh, I forgot to mention, my wife and my dog love the Wavewalk as well!

    Thank you very much Mike,

    Wow! – our first review from North Dakota!
    A couple years ago, someone asked me if Wavewalk was successful, and I replied “Yes, we’re expanding, and we have customers worldwide”.
    So this guy goes -“Do you have clients in North Dakota?… When your website features a review from a client in North Dakota, you’ll know you’re successful!”

    Glad to hear you and your wife enjoy your W, and I’m especially happy to learn your dog likes it too! 😀

    As for Gary, all I have to say that is that he’s awesome. I agree with every word you wrote about him, and I would add some more – Gary is definitely a special guy.

    “If anyone reading this has hesitated, please do yourself a favor and just get a Wavewalk. It’s worth every penny!”

    Yep, thats what I keep telling People……. 🙂

    Great review, great pictures, and a Big Congrats on spending the least money to get the right kayak first time out of the box. 🙂

    I can’t even tell you the amount of money I wasted on sit ins, sit ons………..
    Before discovering the wavewalk kayaks.

    After you get in to your W500 a couple more times, you won’t even have to think about balance, you and your W500 will be one, even with a motor on it. 🙂

    Tight Lines and MoPaddle Safe all.
