Wavewalk™ Fishing Kayak Reviews

1. About Our Customers’ Reviews

We rolled out our first kayak in 2004, and since then, we’ve been actively seeking our customers’ feedback. We use this input to assist our clients and improve their experience.
In the long run, our customers determine the direction of our product offering, and help us enhance the performance of what they already consider as the world’s best fishing kayak, or as some of them say “the world’s best personal fishing craft”.
We publish reviews from customers who send us enough pictures, and we publish reviews without pictures only in special cases. Our customers’ reviews feature the author’s full name, and state.

Our local dealers and international distributors are W Kayak fans who realized the commercial potential and fun in this business, and took the next step by reselling our kayaks locally. They use our kayaks for paddling and fishing, and some for motorized boating. None of Wavewalk’s dealers resell other fishing kayak brands.
We started our dealer program in 2011, and since then it has spawned dozens of these new, customer-owned small businesses, which are yet another powerful testimonial to the unique performance and value of our kayaks.

We no longer seek ‘professional’ reviews from magazines and blogs, after we came to realize that most of our clients attribute little value to them, and they rely mostly on the videos, articles and customer reviews featuring on this website.

Some of our clients have contributed numerous reviews and reports about fishing, rigging and paddling their W kayaks, but since this ‘Reviews’ section of our website already features so many entries, we had to limit the number of links featuring in it. Therefore, we’d like to recommend visiting this website’s Top Contributors section as well, for additional insight.

  1. W500 Fishing Kayak Review

    Greetings everyone,
    I’ve been checking out this kayak from my keyboard for over a year now knowing eventually I would buy one when the time was right. Just when I was about to purchase a new one in VA, I found a used one for sale not too far from me but in PA. I purchased it onsite and I’ve been on the water in it atleast 21 times in the last 30 days and I’m loving it! From day 1 I could stand in it, launch it w/o getting wet and figure out how to load it on top of my Civic. I’ve used it in both freshwater & saltwater and I have caught 12 species of fish, thus far, and I’m looking forward to catching keeper stripers while fishing from it this fall. I’ve learned much from your posts on this blog and I applaud Yoav’s creativity in producing this unique fishing kayak.
    From the mid-atlantic state of MD………thanks Yoav!
    -JD

  2. Thanks JD,
    It goes without saying that we’d all like to see pictures of your rig, fish, places you fish in, etc… :)
    Yoav
