Kai, another satisfied Wavewalk customer

Thank you for outfitting the kayak with a preparation for cockpit cover.

It was a bit breezy yesterday afternoon — my first time paddling when it wasn’t dead calm. I was pleased at how easy it was to go both into the wind and cross-wise, and that when I wanted to stay still to take photos, it didn’t drift or spin much.
I can’t believe how close I was able to get to the herons without spooking them.

I’m glad I tied a length of twine to the paddle. It has tried to escape a couple of times when I’ve put it down to take pictures. I’ve gotten ideas from the Wavewalk web site for how to keep it in place but haven’t made/tried any yet.

My neighbor came over and tried the kayak out. I told him, “You’d like this for fishing.” And yeah, he did until he heard the price :)

I’m having fun with it. Maybe I’ll even take up fishing.

Here are a couple of shots of our local herons. Mr Heron standing on one foot on one side of the lake and Mrs Heron fishing on the other.

Standing and paddling is just awesome.
Thank you so much again for the delivery.
My brother took some pics & vids. I’ll send them to you when I get them.
Anyone who asks (I get the feeling they will) I’ll be sure to have them give you a call.
Thanks again Joe! I can walk on water! Wavewalk that is!

HBBCO Kayaks’ booth – overview (video)

We showed seven W kayaks in various configurations.
One was outfitted with an electric motor, one outfitted with two swivel seats for tandem paddling and fishing, one shown as a hunting or wildlife photography model, and three others.

We were the talk of the show

Just got back from the show and trying to get catch up.

We were the talk of the show! We have a lot of follow-up to do with clients that will be buying. Considering the fact that we were snowed in two day of the show we did fantastic.

The competition were showing their pedal driven kayaks right beside us and all they did was watch the customers walk by their display and check our Wavewalk display.

Stablest kayak for photography

I have the coolest kayak known to man, it’s called a Wavewalk Kayak and it’s the world’s stablest fishing Kayak!
I custom made a camera mount for this boat and all the images in this gallery are those captured using it, I hope you like…

The images on my site have no crop factor, in the water, with a few tricks I was able to get within 3 yards of the subject, something about being in the water in my Kayak they do not see me as a threat. Normally on land a green heron would fly away after spotting me at 50 yards. Also, considering that I’m using about 8,000 dollars worth of equipment in a kayak is so out of the ordinary or should I say crazy… Every time I go out I’m approached by people asking me if I’m worried about tipping over and destroying 8k worth of equipment, I tell them “not in my Wavewalk”. I’m able to access and photograph animals in spots so thick in vegetation that you can’t even see the water.
