Tag Archive: Wavewalk fishing kayak review

A fishing kayak review is a testimonial written by a kayak angler, in which they describe their experience with a particular fishing kayak model. In such a review, the author typically offers their observations regarding various features of the kayak as well as its performance.
Some reviews tell the author’s initial impression from the kayak, and others are comprehensive and detailed articles composed after considerable time spent in fishing out of the kayak, and outfitting (‘rigging’) it to fit the author’s particular fishing style and needs,
Any fishing kayak review that’s not signed by its author’s full name and state is worthless as a source of information, because it is suspected to be phony and created by either a person affiliated with that kayak’s manufacturer, or paid by them. therefore, most fishing kayak reviews found on the web lack credibility.
Pictures attached to the review often make it more informative, as well as serve to increase its credibility.
Wavewalk’s website features some 200 reviews that include their authors’ full name and state, as well as pictures, in most cases.
Wavewalk also publishes reviews contributed by its dealers since they use W kayaks for their own personal use, and they neither sell nor use other kayaks. This fact is important, since Wavewalk is the only kayak company who has its fans act as its local dealers.

Wavewalk S4 with 2 HP Honda outboard in strong wind, lake Simcoe, Ontario, Canada

By Pyt Rotary

Ontario, Canada

Lake Simcoe is a 280 square mile lake in Ontario.

12km/h [7 mph] with Honda 2Hp against wind of 24km/h [15 mph]

Lots of fun except my rocky mistake to not have enough gas with me.
I got excited and let the boat run for 15km straight into the lake and realize I am out of gas.
I paddled back half the distance and got gas from shore.
Now I know… From now on I will carry enough gas with me.
Luckily I paid with just one blister on my hand.

I did come back at night and feel SUPER SAFE in it.
It is a great, fantastic boat.

 

(added comment) –

The S4 is SUPER, SUPER, SUPER stable. It does not sway at all.
I have been in bigger boats with V shape hulls.
Those boats don’t have the same stability on the water as the S4. The waves hammer them straight in the teeth.
The catamaran design cut the waves like a knife cuts through butter.
Definitely there is room for more HP on the S4.

It was my fist ever trip with a gas motor, I do use W500 with an electric motor but never played with gas before. Lots of fun. Now I can reach easily lots of my fishing spots.
Regards from Ontario, Canada.

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.

Our Wavewalk S4 tandem kayak

Carl & Nichole Rodgers

Florida

We took the boat out for the first time last night and it was the smoothest I’ve ever seen the back waters around here and no boat traffic. We paddled around for hours watched the sun go down on the gulf, saw dolphins, fish, and listened to music under the stars.
Loving the boat!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Review of my Wavewalk 500 with an electric trolling motor and transportation wheels (video)

By Eric Klimstra

Ontario, Canada

I was lucky enough for someone to be selling their Wavewalk on kijiji and I became the proud owner of this 500T.

I was at a pike tournament this weekend and I was taped showing off my new ‘toy’ … I thought you’d want the video so here you go:

 

 

I was meaning to do a video when I was done setting it up but of course the cool design blew this guy away and he offered to do one. Tonnes of people asked me about it and I demo’d on the water how stable it was for most.

I made the wheel system and use the inexpensive red carabiner style ropes to keep it with me when I go in the water.

I still plan to do some more tweaks over time but this first time out was a blast.

Keep up the good work… I think a 700 is going to be in my future so I can fit a couple people comfortably for fishing.

My Wavewalk S4 in brown

By Lee Trolan

We have our S4 down on the dock and I took it out on its maiden voyage on Powhatan Creek at Jamestowne.
Wonderful….
We are loving the S4’s stability in the water. Took the grandkids out for a tour of the creek. The S4 performs like a champ and I’m looking to put a minn kota electric motor on it this weekend to allow even further exploration of the creek.
Thank you for your up-to-date communications throughout the transaction and for a great product!
