Wavewalk® 700 Reviews

Wavewalk launched the 700 series at the end of the 2015 season (in late August of 2015).
Currently, there are 19 full featured Wavewalk® 700 reviews listed on this page.
Per our company policy, each Wavewalk® 700 review includes the full name and state of the person who contributed it, as well as pictures. We consider anonymous kayak reviews and reviews posted under an alias to be worthless, and we disapprove of reviews authored by people who get paid to write them, such as journalists and website owners who depend on paid advertising.
We think a review is meaningful only if its author paid for the kayak they review, and they fully identify themselves as a regular client, or a reseller.
We accept reviews contributed by any Wavewalk reseller who bought a Wavewalk® 700 from us for their own, personal use, and does not resell other kayaks. Whether such person uses their W700 for paddling, fishing, hunting or motorized boating, as its user, they certainly have an interesting insight to share with us and with other users, and we are grateful to them for it, and for being a Wavewalk fan.

Wavewalk® 500 Reviews

Wavewalk launched the 500 series in May of 2009.
Currently, there are over two hundred Wavewalk® 500 reviews listed on this page.
Per our company policy, each Wavewalk® 500 review features the full name and state of the person who contributed it, as well as pictures.
We consider anonymous reviews and ones posted under an alias as being not trustworthy.
A review can be useful under the conditions that its author paid for the kayak they review, that they actually use it, and that they fully disclose their identity as a regular client or a reseller.
We disapprove of reviews authored by anyone who’s paid to write kayak reviews, whether directly or indirectly (e.g. through advertising on their website).

A Wavewalk® 500 owner may have contributed more than one review – For example, an Initial Review written shortly after they have received their kayak, and a Comprehensive Review after having outfitted it for fishing and used it over months or years.
An owner of a Wavewalk® 500 may also review it as a Hunting Kayak, and write a separate review of their boat as a Kayak for Children, or a Fishing Kayak. In some cases, we will publish both reviews, and if we don’t, the reader can find more stories and reviews from that by searching their name, or by contacting us.

Typically, our dealers are Wavewalk fans, they use the kayaks they buy from us personally for paddling, fishing, hunting and motorizing, and they don’t resell other kayaks. All of the above qualifies them as reviewers.

Wavewalk® 700 Reviews »

One step at a time

By Dario Lazaric

Melbourne, Australia

I haven’t been in a lot of kayaks before.
I’ve been out with my wavewalk a couple of times, even caught a fish. Stood up, paddled, good fun.
It was tough paddling against the wind and waves, but I’m very happy with it, and it can do much more than in the conditions I took it out in.
Will take it out again sometime when the wind isn’t too strong. I want to get the motor on board as well, but one step at a time. I need to get an anchor, how do I attach it?
Very happy with it. I feel very safe and happy in the wavewalk.

Will need wheels to carry the wavewalk to the beach with the motor attached to it.

Blue Edge Sports is a scam. Not Wavewalk’s dealer

Disclaimer –

To whom it may concern –

Blue Edge Sports was never affiliated with Wavewalk in any way

Wavewalk, Inc., the manufacturer of Wavewalk® kayaks, boats and accessories has neither dealers nor distributors in Australia. We sell Wavewalk® kayaks directly to our Australian clients through our Australyak service.

The Australian entity that called itself “Blue Edge Sports” has never been Wavewalk’s distributor in Australia, and it was never affiliated with our company in any way. Blue Edge Sports just offered for sale some Wavewalk 500 kayaks that it had purchased from a local person who had imported them to Australia back in 2012. The owner of Blue Edge Sports did that without our company’s approval.

Despite the fact that Wavewalk never recognized Blue Edge Sports as its dealer or distributor, and despite the fact that Blue Edge Sports is no longer an active business entity, Matt Ginnivan, the owner of Blue Edge Sports openly claims on his company’s Facebook page that he is an authorized dealer of our company. This is a blatant lie, and his claim is fraudulent.

Since Blue Edge Sports was not an authorized Wavewalk® dealer, and anyone who bought them did so at their own risk.
Accessories offered for sale by Blue Edge Sports as Wavewalk accessories were not original ones, and our company does not have any information about who made them, or how they were made.

Blue Edge Sports never bought any kayaks or accessories directly from the Wavewalk company.

Blue Edge Sports has crafted a website and a Facebook page that intentionally gave their visitors the false impression that they are visiting the website and Facebook page of Wavewalk’s official or otherwise recognized distributor in Australia, although our company had nothing to do with Blue Edge Sports.
Blue Edge Sports’ website and Facebook page have propagated blatantly false and intentionally misleading information, including expressions such as “Wavewalk Australia”,  despite the fact that we had warned Blue Edge Sports from the beginning that we are opposed to such deceptive activities, and that their use of such misleading terms and expressions is not an acceptable business practice, and it is both unfair and deceptive to Australian customers. Unfortunately, all we achieved so far was to limit Blue Edge Sports‘ use of Wavewalk’s logos and copyrighted material.

Since Blue Edge Sports hasn’t had any standing as a Wavewalk distributor, they faced problems convincing clients to buy kayaks from them. This must have been the reason why they advertised lies on their website, namely that they heard (quote): “horror stories of custom fees, damaged goods and long waits“, although in reality none of the kayaks we’ve shipped to Australia has ever been damaged, and we ship our Australian clients’ orders shortly after we receive them and the payment for them.

Blue Edge Sports bought in 2012 a small number of W500 kayaks from the person who had ordered them from us, and we think that they have run out of stock. We have no intention to sell our W500 and W700 kayaks to Blue Edge Sports, and we’re looking to recruit an official authorized distributor and authorized dealers in Australia. We advise any person or company in Australia who is interested in distributing our products in this country to ignore Blue Edge Sports’ activities and false claims, and to contact us  »


Children

Children’s Preferred Kayak

Kayaks should offer high performance not just as fishing and paddling platforms for adults. Children too like to have fun fishing and paddling with adults or by themselves, and the W kayak offers both them and their parents more ways to have fun –

Stability:

Although children are smaller than adults and therefore are less prone to destabilizing their kayak they are also more careless and forgetful, and tend to get overexcited and sometime even to panic.  This is why in order to be considered fit for children a fishing kayak needs to be very stable to begin with, and the W fishing kayak is unrivaled  when it comes to stability.

Watch this hilarious movie of Daniel and his son trying hard to capsize their Wavewalk kayak in a fake “Stability Experiment” 😀

 

 

Comfort:

Children should feel comfortable sitting and standing in a fishing kayak, and you can be sure that even children as young as five feel perfectly at ease doing both in our W fishing kayak.

Ease Of Use:

Children are usually less skilled than adults when it comes to paddling, and it is important that a fishing kayak be easy for children to launch and beach without an adult’s help. It should also be easy for children to track as well as turn their kayak without having to use a rudder.  Here  too, W fishing kayaks are easier to use and handle than any other type of kayak or canoe.

 

Versatility:

Fun means different things for different people in different times –
It means you may want to play with your fishing kayak in the surf or let your kids or grand kids do it by themselves – solo or in tandem.   Here too, you will find that our W fishing kayak offers you and the children you care about more than you’d ever expected.

 

Excitement:

Children like to paddle with adults but they also love to paddle by themselves if they feel confident enough in their kayak –

The W300 was the first Wavewalk™ kayak series produced between 2004 and 2010. Kayaks from this series were shorter and narrower than ones from the W500 series.
