Wavewalk® PSP R  (9′ long)    Price: $190

Wavewalk® PSP L  (9’8″ long)    Price: $230

We don’t ship Wavewalk® paddles separately from Wavewalk® kayaks since all items that are over 8 ft long require shipping by freight truck.


Common kayak paddles are shorter than our paddles, and they won’t suit adults paddling our kayaks.
Other long paddles might be too ‘soft’ (flexible: slow, waste your energy ), or not sturdy enough.
Our composite paddles are extra rigid and durable, so that you can use them for launching and beaching in difficult spots, for stand up paddling, and even for poling in shallow water.
We don’t ship W paddles separately from W kayaks.

“The World’s Best Fishing Kayak” – Wavewalk® 500 Background

All Wavewalk kayaks and boats are based our patented invention allowing the design of small, lightweight watercraft that offer more stability, comfort and control than other kayak and small boats do.
We came out with the 500 series in May of 2009, and it became an instant success. Until August 2015 when we introduced the 700 series, the W500 was the world’s most stable and most comfortable kayak, and it featured the biggest storage space, so its users dubbed it “The world’s best fishing kayak”. Some of them have contributed their reviews of the Wavewalk 500 »

In November 2013, we made the W500’s saddle bracket a standard feature in all models from this series, in order to help protect them from excessive load and mechanical stress.
Since the advent of the bigger, heavier and more stable 700 series, the classic 500 is popular mainly as a solo fishing kayak, and as a touring kayak for lightweight tandem crews. Many W500 owners motorize it with electric trolling motors and small, lightweight outboard gas motors.

Wavewalk® 500 OVERVIEW

catamaran fishing kayak parts description

Wavewalk 500 F without the standard flotation modules

  1. Flush mount rod holders
  2. Saddle: 6 ft long, 14″ high, 12″ wide
  3. Cockpit: 6 ft long, 29″ wide, 17″ deep
  4. Prep for cockpit cover
  5. Four piece carry handle (x4)
  6. Molded-in saddle reinforcement element (x13)
  7. Hull tip for storage (x4)
  8. Hull: 11’4″ long, 14″ deep, 8″ wide (x2)
  9. 3″ high spray deflector




This animation video shows the W500 kayak in the basic configuration, without flotation.
The video shows the kayak’s twin-hull (‘catamaran’) structure, the reinforced saddle (longitudinal seat) that the passengers ride like the saddle of a personal watercraft (a.k.a. Jet Ski) or all-terrain-vehicle (ATV), with a leg in each hull. Also shown are the depth of the hulls, and the vast storage space they offer in the spacious cockpit and hull tips, and the spray deflector around the cockpit.

What is a Wavewalk® Kayak?


“W” cross section of a W500 Kayak

Wavewalk is a registered trademark and the name given to a patented invention recognized as a new type of watercraft.
Since it is lightweight and narrow enough for its passengers to propel with kayak paddles, the US Coast Guard (USCG) classifies the W as a kayak. The W features two full twin hulls joined by a central structure dubbed Saddle, which is similar to the saddle of personal watercraft (PWC), also known as jet-skis. Unlike common catamarans, the W’s cockpit offers passengers to sit or stand with a leg in each hull.








Paddling_positions - Riding 256

Unlike common kayaks, the W does not force its users to sit in the non-ergonomic L-position, with their legs stretched in front of them. Instead, the W offers to ride its saddle in a naturally comfortable, stable and powerful Riding posture shown here (1 & 2). The Riding posture is back-pain-free.




Paddling_positions_Sitting_256Wavewalk passengers can also stand up anytime they want, lay down on the saddle and stretch their back, or sit in a more relaxed posture, as shown here (3 & 4)


kayak view from above

Top view of Wavewalk 500 with paddler seated in the Riding posture

The W kayak’s unique combination of improved stability, ergonomics and hydrodynamics offers its users unrivaled performance when they paddle with either kayak or canoe paddles, as well as when they motorize it with electric motors or with powerful outboard gas engines.

Wavewalk® 500 DIMENSIONS

  • Total Length: 136″ (345 cm).
  • Total Width: 29″ (73 cm).
  • Hull Width: 8″ (20 cm) in the cockpit area.
  • Saddle Width at the Bottom: 12.5″ (32 cm)
  • Internal Hull Length: 136″ (345 cm) available for storage.
  • Cockpit-Opening Length: 72″ (183 cm). Internal cockpit is longer in the hull tips.
  • Cockpit Height: 17″ (43 cm) from the bottom of the hulls.
  • Saddle Height: 14.5″ (37 cm) from the bottom of the hulls.
  • Weight: 60 lbs (27 kg) with no added accessories.
  • Storage Space: 8.8 cubic ft (66 gallons / 250 liters) of internal, dry, always accessible storage space, inside the cockpit, two hulls, and 4 hull tips.
  • Internal Volume: 117 gallons (15.7 cubic feet / 444 liters). This doesn’t mean all this space is available for storage, and it certainly doesn’t mean the kayak can carry the equivalent load – See Storage and Maximal Recommended Load (MRL)



Patented, deep twin hulls attached by a long and high saddle. US utility patent number 6871608.
The W kayak is symmetrical both left-right and front-rear: Bow and stern are interchangeable.
The entire internal space of the hulls is empty and protected, and serves for storing camping and fishing gear. Passengers in the cockpit can conveniently access this 66 gallon (250 liters) dry storage space at all times.
This new type of watercraft is a catamaran in a hydrodynamic sense, since it features two full-featured hulls.
The passengers’ feet reach all the way down to the bottom of the hulls, which also serve to store gear on board, and therefore, the use of the term ‘pontoons’ (floats) to describe this kayak’s hulls is technically incorrect.

Draft BY load:

  • at 200 lb Load: 4″ (10 cm draft at 91 kg load).
  • at 360 lb Load: 6.5″ (16 cm draft at 163 kg load).


Recyclable kayakHull: Rotationally Molded High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
Saddle Bracket: Medium Density Overlay (MDO).

Our kayaks are made from 100% recyclable materials


Country of Origin:

US flag 46Our kayaks, paddles and accessories are all 100% Made in USA




How much fishing and camping gear can fit inside a Wavewalk 500?

Our Wavewalk® kayaks offer several times more storage space than any other kayak. The amount of storage available is equal to the kayak’s internal volume, minus the space occupied by each passenger. The storage space includes the kayak’s two hulls and its cockpit. The W500’s total internal volume is 117 gallons (15.7 cubic feet / 444 liters), of which 8.8 cubic ft (66 gallons / 250 liters) can be used for internal, dry and always accessible storage space, inside the cockpit, two hulls, and 4 hull tips.

The passengers in the W500 can easily access their gear anytime, and the gear stays dry under normal conditions. The cockpit can be partially or entirely covered by a cockpit cover. Read more about the W500 internal storage space »


* Note:  The information featuring on this page is mostly about the 500 series. The bigger 700 series offers more storage space. For full 700 Series technical specs and other information, please visit our W700 page »

Wavewalk® 500 Maximal Recommended Load (MRL):

360 lbs (163 kg) in total, including passengers and all the gear they carry, stored inside the hulls or attached to the kayak.
Like any other vehicle, an overloaded kayak becomes slower, less stable, and less maneuverable.

Wavewalk® 500 Weight Limitations for Passengers:

Solo – The combined weight of passenger and gear should not exceed the 360 lbs MRL.
A person who weighs more than 240 lb (109 kg) should outfit their W500 with a saddle bracket.
Tandem – The combined weight of both passengers and their gear should not exceed the 360 lbs MRL.
A person weighing over 200 lbs (91 kg) should outfit their kayak with a saddle bracket for tandem paddling or motorizing.

Since November of 2013, a W500 models come outfitted with a saddle bracket, standard.

Always operate your Wavewalk® kayak within the above load limitations – Even if your W kayak feels perfectly stable and comfortable. Failing to comply with our recommendations could damage it, and might even be hazardous. More info »

New_Kayak_Handle_01All our kayaks come equipped with 4 ergonomic, 4-piece carry handles – standard



Fisherman_carrying_lightweight_kayak_on_his_shoulder_256The W500 is nimble and lightweight. The W500 R model weighs just 60lbs.








Wavewalk® 500 Reviews »



  • For your maiden voyage as a W kayaker, we recommend the Riding posture and not the Sitting posture.
  • Practice operating your W kayak on flat water before taking it in moving water.
  • Remember that your experience in paddling canoes or common kayaks is irrelevant to the W kayak, which offers a much broader performance envelope. Take your time learning how to operate your W kayak, so that you can benefit in full from what it has to offer you.
  • You can enter the W kayak’s cockpit from its rear, and exit it from the front – Keep your feet dry!
  • Paddling and motorizing your W kayak from the middle of its cockpit makes it both stabler and faster. You can easily move along your W kayak’s saddle and relocate fore and aft in the 6 ft long cockpit, but remember that normally you operate a W kayak from the middle of its cockpit, and not from its rear.
  • Surf launching and beaching: Operating your W kayak from the cockpit’s rear end makes its bow rise. This is an advantage when you launch your W kayak in the surf, or beach it anywhere.
  • You can make your W kayak go over obstacles sticking out of shallow water – See article and video »
  • Tracking in strong wind: You can operate your W kayak from a point that’s closer to cockpit’s rear, if adding weight to the stern helps you track under strong wind. Similarly, you can also move forward, in case relocating your weight towards the bow helps you track and steer under strong wind blowing from a different direction. You’d never need a rudder to help you track or steer your W kayak. For more information, see full article and video »
  • Tandem paddling is a more advanced application than solo paddling. Therefore, both passengers should first paddle a W kayak solo and get used to operating it, before they start practicing as a tandem crew.
  • Motorizing – Get used to paddling your W kayak before you motorize it. Driving a motorized W kayak is done from its middle, and not from the cockpit’s rear end. You’d need to outfit your motor with a long articulated (jointed) tiller extension.

Common kayak paddles are neither long and rigid nor durable enough for W Kayakers:
The W design requires using a longer paddle even in the seated (Riding) position, and when you use a long paddle you can achieve more both in tracking terms as well as in maneuvering, and you gain additional mobility »
Paddling standing requires a paddle that’s both longer and more rigid than other kayak paddles. A ‘soft’ paddle wastes your energy and slows you down.
Launching and beaching in difficult spots, and poling in shallow water require a paddle that’s longer, more rigid, and more durable than most paddles.
When all above requirements are concerned, our composite paddles are unmatched, which is why we haven’t changed their design in over a decade.

Getting a Wavewalk® in the United Kingdom

Since 2007, we’ve been selling Wavewalk® kayaks factory direct to clients in the United Kingdom.

Our UK clients get all the technical and sales support they need directly from us by email and by phone, and they pay us by direct transfer (ACH) or by international check in US dollars.
We charge our UK clients $210 US in total including insurance for shipping their W500 from the US factory to a major UK port, $270 for doing the same for a W700, and $320 for an S4. Once we know your address we can find the cheapest way to ship the kayak to you.
We ship each Wavewalk® kayak in a custom cardboard box, for maximum protection, and our shipments are insured.
Typical transit time for such a shipment is 3 weeks, but it can take a couple of weeks more, depending on cutoff dates and other factors over which we have no control.

Once the boxed W kayak and accessories reach their UK port of destination, the client has to take care of customs clearing and transportation from the port to their address. We provide our clients with all necessary documentation for customs.
UK duty on US made kayaks is minimal. However, our UK clients are required to pay the local value added tax (VAT), like they do on all other products.
Other local expenses that UK clients need to be aware of are port taxes and fees which may vary from time to time and from one port to another, and storage fees if the client requires the box to be stored locally before picking it up.

We can also ship to inland local freight terminals where the client would pickup their box.

How we manage to offer such low shipping rates to UK ports

Adding $210 and $270 as extra shipping fee to a UK port helps us pay for shipping to our European clients –
The actual cost of shipping a boxed Wavewalk® kayak from the US factory to a main UK port is between $450 and $550, depending on whether it’s a W500 or W700, and on the port of destination.
However, we don’t have to charge the full cost of shipping to The UK since our kayaks are already priced with a local shipping component for our US customers. This figure rarely covers our own cost when we ship a single box to an end customer’s address in the continental US, but it does cover much of it. We use these funds to cover part of our cost of shipping to our UK clients, so they don’t have to pay the full cost of shipping.

We are looking for dealers and distributors in the UK –

Bill Davenport

Bill is an offshore fly fisherman from Plymouth, Massachusetts.
“My kayak is where I like to be” summarizes Bill’s experience with his W500. Being in his sixties and 6’3″ tall made it practically impossible for him to fly fish from other kayaks, and his artificial knee didn’t make things easier for him…

Jeff McGovern

Jeff standing in his fishing kayak.gifAt 6’3″ and 245lbs, and with his sensitive back, Jeff couldn’t fish out of any kayak, prompting him to get his first W kayak (a W300), years ago. Since then, Jeff’s observations, insight, professional articles and videos have helped in establishing the W as the ne plus ultra kayak for fishing, and the choice of those who realize what this sport is about in real life, as opposed to the marketing hype that Jeff enjoys deriding. Jeff’s rigging innovations, as well as his practical ideas for using the W more effectively, have made a difference for many W anglers worldwide. Jeff is a fishing guru, and a consultant to fishing tackle manufacturers, as well as a member of the Jacksonville Florida Kayak Fishing Club, and a distributor of Emmrod fishing rods. Jeff’s favorite Florida fish species are redfish, seatrout and flounder. When Jeff fishes in Canada, he goes mainly after muskie.

Sungjin Kim

Sungjin showing a nice fish he caught on board his motorized fishing kayakSungjin loves fishing, and had always looked to find the perfect fishing boat. Once he found the W kayak, he knew that was it. After that, he became a driving force in developing Wavewalk kayak fishing through his numerous innovative rigging projects, fishing trip reports, pictures and videos. Sungjin was the first to successfully mount a 2hp outboard gas motor on a W500, and by doing so, he effectively started an international collaborative project that yielded the full-fledged motorized W kayak (a.k.a. Personal Portable Cartop Microskiff) – an exciting small boat which is becoming increasingly popular among existing W anglers, and new ones. Sungjin was also the first to show how such a motorized kayak could easily tow a second kayak for long distance fishing trips, and how two anglers could effectively fish in tandem, offshore, from a W500, and even prepare a meal on board!
-Thanks Sungjin! 😀

Michael Chesloff

Before he found out about the Wavewalk® kayak, Michael had owned eight fishing craft including a bass boat, a skiff, a jon boat, an inflatable dinghy, and a conventional fishing kayak. Each one had its own disadvantages. So naturally, Michael was somehow skeptical about the Wavewalk 500, and took one for a test ride before he decided to purchase it. Since then, Michael, a lifelong bass fisherman from Eastern New York, has become a fan of the W500, and outfitted his with an outboard motor. Michael contributed to this blog his reviews, articles, rigging innovations, fishing trip reports, and videos.
-Thanks Michael! 😀

About Wavewalk Reviews

We rolled out our first kayak (the W300) 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 design and product offering, and help us enhance the performance of what they already consider as the world’s best fishing kayaks and portable boats.
Per our company policy, our client reviews feature the author’s full name and state, as well as pictures they contributed.

Over the years, our clients have contributed over two hundred full featured Wavewalk® 500 reviews and Wavewalk® 700 reviews

Our clients include regular users and local dealers who are typically Wavewalk fans who personally use the Wavewalk® 500 and Wavewalk® 700 kayaks and boats they bought from us for paddling, fishing, hunting and motorized boating.  The fact that they own and use our kayaks and boats on a regular basis allows them to act as consumer advocates, and as such we welcome their testimonials insight, including their reviews. Some of our dealers are experts in certain fields (e.g. duck hunting with bow and arrow, fishing for largemouth bass, crossbow fishing, night fishing, etc.), and prospecting clients often tend to consult with them, naturally.

Over the years, we’ve noticed that our clients attribute little credibility to kayak reviews published without the author’s full name and state, and to reviews that are written by paid reviewers, such as appear in fishing magazines and websites that depend on advertising that kayak manufacturers pay for. Our clients prefer to seek information in videos, technical articles, and real customer testimonials such as they find on our website.

Some of our clients have contributed more than one review to this website, as well as reports about fishing, rigging, paddling and motorizing their Wavewalk® kayaks and boats. We cannot list all these entries on this page because there are too many of them. Therefore, we created a separate Top Contributors section for this website, where we present profiles of our most active contributors, with links to lists of their blog posts.

Reviews of the 300 discontinued series

We no longer list here customer reviews of the smaller-size W300 series (2004-2010) because the reviews of the newer Wavewalk 500, 700 and series 4 are more relevant to our clients, and people show little interest in the W300, naturally.
Many of the W300 reviews were contributed before 2008, the year when we started this blog, but many others still appear in search results.  To find customer reviews of kayaks from this discontinued series, use the keyword 300 in this blog’s search form.
