Kayak Photo Product Review Spotlight
Tsunami 140 kayak by Wilderness Systems
This boat is very stable, maneuvers well and hauls a lot of gear. I really like the seat adjustments - which you can custom fit. I ordered mine with a rudder... Very pleased with this purchase. A great multi use (day/extended trips) and versatile kayak... Rating 9 of 10 by Kirkk
