Tag Archive: fishing kayak

A fishing kayak is a small vessel designed and outfitted to be used typically by one angler for recreational fishing. In most cases, the angler propels their kayak with a dual blade paddle (kayak paddle), and in their cases, the kayak is motorized, typically with an electric (trolling) motor powered by a battery carried on board.
Most fishing kayaks are inadequate for fishing due to several reasons, including insufficient stability, poor ergonomics (lack of basic comfort), wetness, and lack of good storage space.
Some bigger fishing kayak models are too wide, heavy and slow for an average angler to paddle. Such kayaks are commonly known as ‘barges’. Their large size also makes them too hard to car top, and they often require to be transported by trailer, which defies the purpose of kayak fishing.
The only kayak that’s stable, comfortable and dry enough for an average person to fish from is the W kayak. It is also the only kayak offering adequate storage, as well as easy entrance into the cockpit and easy exit from it.

While I’m waiting for the S4 that I ordered…

This is Canada. It’s cold!

I’ll have more room for the kids in my S4

Wavewalk 500, 700 and S4, side by side

Following a request by Tom and Gary, here is a couple of computer renders of the W500, W700 and S4, side by side (virtually).
We opted to present the visual info this way rather than to shoot actual photos because computer imaging is less prone to distortions caused by lenses and inadequate angles of shooting.

 

 

 

First images of S4 hull and assembled test unit

Today our molders ‘broke in’ the Teflon of the S4 mold.
They molded a few hulls from low grade material, and assembled a mock S4 to see that everything works well.
And it does: The mold works perfectly, the S4 parts fit together nicely, and everything is cool. We did it!  🙂

We’ll start shipping S4 orders next week.

Here are some first images of the assembled test unit – Note that the molders didn’t bother to apply the W logo to this test part, or trim it along the parting line and cockpit opening, because next week they’ll send it the grinder.

Note that when mounted on an actual S4 boat, the mounting plate will be attached to the rear end of the cockpit by means of two 3/8″ bolts.

First S4 twin-hull (test unit) sits in Wavewalk’s assembly area. The actual S4 product will feature a W logo on each side of the stand-up casting platfrom

View from a rear angle. The rear carry handles and mounting plate are visible, and the front saddle bracket can be perceived too, with a little effort.

Front view with the casting platform and front carry handles. The rear saddle bracket is visible, and so is the mounting plate.

Rear view with the rear carry handles, the mounting plate that fits perfectly inside the molded-in mount, and the front saddle bracket that’s barely visible.
