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.
