Stable, comfortable and dry in my stand up fishing and photography kayak, by Michael Pyle

I’m a nature photographer, and I needed a stable boat that would keep my expensive gear dry. Naturally, I was a little nervous about tipping over in the water. That is how I came to find the W kayak on Google to begin with.

I’ve been in the boat as much as possible since you pulled out of my driveway!
It is absolutely perfect, I have always wanted a small boat but just never felt comfortable in a sit on top kayak. I also never imagined how many comments and attention I would receive at the lake. People were blown away by my ability to stand and paddle, one Guy thought I was some sort of expert… I just laughed and said this is my first time on the water!!!

    Thanks Mike,

    Shooting photos while standing up in your W kayak will add a new angle to your photographic art.

    Learning about all the photographers that are using the Wavewalk for great pictures has really increased my interest in photography. Sure I love fishing out of my Wavewalk but taking pics of the surroundings that one comes across on the water is becoming a close second. Great pics Mike, keep them coming.
