Honda Outboard on a W500 Fishing Kayak

What’s it really like when you are on the water in a lightweight Wavewalk that’s being propelled by a 4-stroke gas motor? Well, it’s a lot faster than any pedal-driven kayak and still easy to paddle and transport. Take a look-

Multi-Kayak Transportation Solution (with How-To Photos)

Diane and Ernie Balch are serious kayakers and serious Wavewalk fans. They bought their first Wavewalk, a W500, for Ernie. He discovered that it really wasn’t adequate for his frame so he gave it to his wife who became a real fan.

When the W700 came out last fall Ernie was among the very first to try it and then buy it. You can see the video of his test paddle here.

This May they booked a vacation at Hatteras Island, North Carolina to visit their daughter and grandkids and naturally wanted to take their Wavewalks with them. Here is a video of a unique side-loader Ernie built to help them deal with 2 kayaks and a truck that is seven feet tall!

Here is Diane with one of her grandchildren in her W500. Ahead of her and hidden by the tree are Ernie and Diane’s daughter and her husband with another grandchild on board. You can’t really see the W700 up ahead but you can see the 2 paddles sticking out from behind the tree.

In case you want a rack like his, Ernie was kind enough to share pictures of how he built it. It detaches easily and even breaks down to fit easily inside the vehicle. After all this, Ernie concluded his emails to me with “I need another vacation!”.

The W500 is fast in more ways than one.

This under-3-minutes video shows how I usually land, exit and transport my Wavewalks. I only car-top if I will be traveling on the interstate where traffic moves at close to 75 mph. I hope it helps viewers understand some of the real-world advantages of this most excellent fishing kayak.

First time in a W700 Fishing Kayak!

Tim Fish from Massachusetts spent over 2 years looking for a fishing kayak. He owns boats and canoes but wanted something that would be easier to transport and launch. And most importantly, that he could stand and fly-cast from with complete confidence.

Watch the video to see what he discovered.

Winter Pictures from 2 clients

Despite the warmest and most snow-barren winter on record we still have to wait for spring to get out on the water. Still, I received these photos and comments from 2 very happy upstate New York customers.

Rob Nilson's RigRob Nilson got a W500 because his knee problems made it impossible to fish from ordinary kayaks. He sent me this photo with the following message: "Yes, it's a great boat - this pic was last year at 7th. Lake outside of Inlet,NY. The boat seat is just a little to low. After a while my knees hurt. The chair is perfect & comfortable! Gets a lot of remarks too."
An Invisible Kayak?

It took me a few minutes before I could find the W500 in this photo from duck hunter Bob Glandon. His comment on the Wavewalk: “Camo cloth for duck hunting. Worked well– just not my aim. Very solid for shooting from seated position. Had a dozen decoys in the hulls. Very comfy. Just wish my aim was as high quality as the boat!”

ERNIE AND DIANE BALCH PUT THE NEW W700 TO THE TEST!

The video says it all, though it is mostly silent! Keep the volume up so you can hear Ernie’s brief comments about himself and his wife, Diane.

If you are a big guy, even a very big guy, the W700 will allow you to paddle and fish standing up in complete confidence! And if you are small you can still paddle this 80 pound wonder with ease.

With a total capacity of 580 pounds, it instantly changes from a single user to a true tandem kayak… just add 1 extra paddler and 1 extra paddle!

Stable beyond your dreams, ready for a 3.5 horsepower outboard motor (motor mounts available separately) and easy for one person to car top, the W700 is the solution you’ve been looking for.

Heaviest Pickerel Ever!


I got out for a short while to a nearby lake. Overall, the fishing was just okay until I hooked into this beauty:

Pedals vs Paddles

I took a potential customer to a nearby lake to test paddle a W5oo. A few yards away, 2 ladies were launching there new paddle boat for the first time.

As the customer was returning to shore we heard a cry for help from the middle of the lake. The pedal craft was in trouble; the drive mechanism on their new boat had failed and they were stranded. As soon as my kayak reached shore I got in, paddled out and towed the grateful castaways to safety. I captured a few moments of the event using the camera on my phone. Of course, the lake was small and I don’t think they were in any great danger, though they certainly were grateful for the tow.

He bought the Wavewalk.
