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.

Hawg Buster Stand Up Fishing Kayaks at the Philadelphia Outdoor Sportshow

Hawg Buster Stand Up Fishing Kayaks will have a 20′ x 20′ booth at the 5th Annual Greater Philadelphia Outdoor Sportshow, home to Pennsylvania’s All-Outdoors Sports Show, which will take place on February 13-16, 2014 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pennsylvania.

Come visit us at the show! Our booth will be adjacent to the kayak testing pool.

We will be displaying four different rigging options:  one basic touring craft, another unit rigged for hunting complete with a lay down duck blind, a third rigged for fishing complete with fish finder, rod holders, anchor system etc., and a fourth motorized unit complete with navigation lights and a swivel seat.

We will be playing Wavewalk videos on a 60” flat screen for all to see.

If any interested parties would like to e-mail us, we will be happy to reserve a time slot for them on the kayak testing pool!

We look forward to seeing you at the show!

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.
