Wavewalk W500

The W500 is a solid work horse from which you can modify to suit your needs.
I used canoes and kayaks for many years before choosing the Wavewalk W500.
I have used mine for over 6 years and would not trade it.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
durability, comfort, stability
Cons:
cost

mr.

Great kayak, great invention. I have seen a website bad mouth it, I don't understand it.

I don't understand also, why it is so expensive. If it is cheaper, it should sell really well.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
all of above
Cons:
I still think it is a bit TOO expensive.

Wavewalk W700

This will seem a self-serving review because I am the north central/western Wavewalk dealer. I am 63 and have had two lumbar disk surgeries and currently weigh 265lbs. I am now retired as a biologist/herpetologist. I wanted to get back to fishing and quiet times on the water in addition to introducing my grandchildren to the same. Some time ago, I actually did a Google search for "Kayak for Bad Backs" and the Wavewalk website was one of the search results. Perused the website (Wavewalk.com) and soon after I drove to the coast and tried out a Wavewalk at the eastern NC dealer http://fishingkayaks-nc.com/

Amazing, I could get in the W500 DRY! and paddle in an upright position, stand as needed, adjust leg position as needed and the get out dry. Soon after I bought one just as Wavewalk debued the W700. This new model is everything the 500 is X2. You will not believe how stable AND easy it is to paddle. You can set it up with elec or small gas outboards (gas

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Incredibly stable, no back pain, Tandem if choose
Cons:
Not cheap
