These gals were experienced kayakers, and they came to test the W kayak –
They have been renting sit-on-tops for a couple of years now, and they almost went and bought two of those, but thought they’d test out a Wavewalk kayak first, to see for themselves IF THE WEBSITE HYPE WAS TRUE OR NOT.
They both stood-up and paddled around standing up. They both loved the comfort and stability of the plastic chair sitting over the saddle too! They both said it was just as stable with the chair. I sure think it is! They also said that sit-on-tops, no matter what you do, you’re wet after about 10 minutes… just from wave and paddle splash. But not in these W kayaks – they keep you dry!
They tested holding onto the chain fence railing beside the dock and could NOT get the hull they were standing in to go below the waterline and take on water, even standing on one leg with the other up in the air. They both said what I thought: if you get that far out of balance (without the fence to hold to) you’ll fall out before you ever take on water over the side.
They loved the kayaks… They live in Huntington Beach about 2 hours from here.
After they had tested the W, these two experienced kayakers sure thought the W website hype was true!
