6’6″ tall, both stable and comfortable in my W500 kayak, by Andrew Smith

Being 6’6″ tall I had some real problems sitting comfortably in any kayak before I got my first W500. I am very pleased by how much room it has, and how easy it is to get in and out.
I also own a traditional sit-inside kayak and I always felt like it was a death-trap as squeezing all 6’6″ inches of me inside. I figured if I ever rolled I’d be in real trouble – thankfully I never did, but it was a constant worry.
Soon after I got my w500, my extended family and I had a blast using it.

I use my WaveWalk kayak for touring and nature photography around the islands and networks of rivers in the low country – Hilton Head SC area.
These kayaks are also great for fishing, as their stability, outfitting and storage are second to none.
