Wilderness Systems Tsunami 145 blends a touring kayak's speed and storage efficiency with the stability and quickness of a recreational kayak.

  • High-density Gen2™ polyethylene construction offers performance, rugged durability and affordability
  • Novice and seasoned paddlers will enjoy the responsive performance of the Tsunami's hybrid hull shape
  • Paddle comfortably all day thanks to the adjustable seat, thigh and hip support, plus Wilderness System's ratcheting Butterfly Backband
  • Phase3™ seat can be adjusted on the fly to relieve fatigue on long paddles; adjustable thigh braces help lock-in for carved turns
  • Ergonomic ratcheting backband delivers excellent comfort and control; new Slidelock footrail system is easily adjustable, comfortable and rugged
  • Equipped with 3 hatches plus plenty of deck rigging for ample storage of food and gear
  • Controls in cockpit deploy foot-pedal-controlled rudder; rudder assists with tight maneuvering and tracking in rough conditions
  • Full-size stern hatch, 10 in. bow hatch and 8 in. day hatch have bulkheads to keep gear dry and secure while also providing flotation
  • Great for day trips or overnights, the bow and stern hatches provide access to dry storage space for fishing supplies, picnic staples or camping gear
  • Retractable comfort carry toggles allow easy portaging to and from the water
  • Perimeter deck lines for safety and easier re-entry into kayak

Made in USA.
