Super fast expedition kayak

The Wahoo is a super fast expedition kayak. With its extremely long waterline and smart hull design it is faster then any expedition kayak on the market and yet very sea worthy. The Wahoo has a ergonomic cockpit design for comfortable seating for fast paddle trips and even the longest expeditions. Because of its high volume there is plenty of storage space for any kind of trip. The Wahoo stands for: Speed, good tracking, rough conditions, long distance and comfort.

Available in three lay-up options

Traditional lay up (TR) uses polyester/diolen and fiber glass.

Extra Rigid (XR) is made of vinylester/carbon/Kevlar/glass fiber and diolen.

Carbon light (CL) – hull of carbon fiber sandwich with diolen resin with a deck constructed in fiberglass and vinylester.

Traditional lay-up is like the classic Skim yet with more reinforcement and therefore more rigid. Extra rigid is as expected even more rigid and nearly bomb proof. 
Carbon light has the same rigidness as the XR, but is by far the most lightweight lay up of the three.
