An icon is reimagined in the all-new Wilderness Systems Tsunami. The aesthetics of the new Tsunami inspire performance and exploration with modern deck lines, while a focus on improving the paddler’s experience sees new features incorporated into the design – two removable mesh deck storage bags are perfect for stowing close-at-hand items, and an under-deck storage area provides another alternative for staging your favorite beverage. Small changes with big effects have also been integrated into the hull – the flared sidewalls and increased volume above the waterline have been improved to provide more confidence and stability, while the longer waterline enhances speed and efficiency. 

The Wilderness Systems' Tsunami Series kayaks are some of the most paddler-friendly, comfortable, versatile, and high performance light touring kayaks ever designed. The Tsunami 145 melds the stability and quickness of a recreational touring kayak with the speed, storage, and efficiency of a sea kayak. Compared to the Tsunami 140, the 145 has a larger cockpit and greater volume. Its smooth and efficient design works well with larger paddlers or those wishing to carry more gear.

Ample cockpit size and length without losing performance make the Tsunami 145 the choice for larger paddlers desiring extra gear and storage capacity.
