Gold’s S4 – pics and videos of first tests

By Fin Gold

North Carolina

Fin lives next to the ocean, and he loves fishing in shallow water. He’s been fishing out of an 18 ft skiff, but being a big boat with a heavy motor, that skiff drafts 18″, which is less than optimal for shallow water, especially at low tide, when the risk of getting stranded increases. Fin and his family also didn’t like how their big skiff felt in choppy water, and how it reacted to other boats’ wakes. Fin ordered an S4 with the intention of having it replace his 18 ft skiff. After he and his wife tested their S4, they decided to sell their skiff. The S4 will also replaces their tandem kayak. Says Fin: –

The video where I slide it down the ramp is the very first time trying it out.
The young guy on the boat is my youngest son Adam. He is a student and he was excited beforehand. Then he loved testing it out.

The videos are all at less than 1/2 throttle as we follow the 3.5 hp Tohatsu engine break-in procedure.

The S4 also lets us explore all the coastal islands where previously we could only take a kayak.

One question​ we had was the best position for the engine tilt. It looks like it has 5 holes for tilt and it came in the center hole. Any advice for that?

Here are the first pictures and videos. All unedited happiness.

Shelling in the barrier islands with our Wavewalk S4

By Fin Gold

North Carolina

I created a custom trailer for “The Dub” [Wavewalk S4] out of an old sailboat trailer. We took it to a local boat ramp and motored about an hour through the marshes to a barrier island to go shelling. Made it there and back in fine style.

We got some funny looks from people watching us go by and watching me launch the boat with one finger!

Loving our Wavewalk!

Review of the Wavewalk S4 as a shrimping boat

By Fin Gold

North Carolina

The stability and closeness to the water make the Wavewalk S4 a perfect shrimping platform.
We go out on our S4 boat, named “The Dub”, with 2 or 3 people. One person in the back to operate the Tohatsu 3.5 hp motor, the shrimper in the front standing up with the cast net, and maybe a shrimp processor/sorter in the middle.
We recently harvested 40 lbs (heads off) of green-tail shrimp in 4 days of outings.

WAVEWALK® S4 REVIEWS

We launched the Wavewalk® Series 4 dubbed S4 in May of 2017. So far, it has been acclaimed by its users as a very comfortable and easy to paddle kayak, and a high performance motorboat in terms of fishability, versatility, comfort, load capacity, stability, and seaworthiness.
We publish a Wavewalk review only if it features its author’s full name and state, and pictures (or videos).
We publish reviews contributed by Wavewalk dealers as long as they use our kayaks and boats themselves for paddling, fishing, touring, hunting etc. We listen attentively to what they have to tell us because we think such people know what they’re talking about. We also recommend that our clients consult with them.
