The all-new Tsunami is exceptionally fast, yet stable in all conditions

GREENVILLE, S.C. (August 29, 2017) – Wilderness Systems, the industry leader in premium performance touring and fishing kayaks, reintroduces the Swiss Army Knife® of touring kayaks: the Tsunami.

“The Tsunami is one of the most popular and trusted touring kayaks of all time,” said Evan Lyendecker, marketing director for Wilderness Systems. “The all-new Tsunami is exceptionally fast, nimble and stable in all conditions. Our team of designers increased the speed of the kayak while improving stability and comfort. The paddling experience is exceptional and incorporates innovative features like mesh deck bags and under-deck storage. We took one of the greatest touring kayaks of all time and made it better.”

The modern aesthetics of the new Tsunami inspire performance and exploration, while the new features improve time spent on water in the most comfortable touring kayak on the market. The Tsunami is perfect kayak for any level of paddler thanks to its built-in comfort, stability and durability.

On deck features include two removable mesh deck storage bags for stowing close-at-hand items, an under-deck storage area for staging your favorite beverage and a comfortable, highly adjustable seating and foot brace system.

Flared sidewalls coupled with increased volume above the waterline add confidence and stability and comfort, while the longer waterline increases speed and efficiency.

Available in three sizes, 125, 140 and 145, the Tsunami has been optimized so that any paddler can feel comfortable regardless of their kayak’s length. The 140 and 145 are also available in rudder versions.
