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-
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.
It’s been a long wait for warmer weather, less wind and a break in the rain. I go out for the first time in 2016 to a nearby lake in Philmont, NY. The fishing was okay, but the feeling was fantastic.
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.
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.

I got out for a short while to a nearby lake. Overall, the fishing was just okay until I hooked into this beauty:
I used a Sony video camera mounted to a baseball cap (hat cam) to capture a wider view of the experience of fishing from a W500.
Here is four hours condensed into four minutes.
There is just nothing like fishing from a Wavewalk when it comes to “going where the fish are” Hope you enjoy it.
The Columbia Land Conservancy maintains the fantastic Ooms Conservation Area near the northern end of the Taconic Parkway in upstate New York. It includes the beautiful Sutherland Pond where I was able to film some bass attacking in the lily pads:
I get a call from fellow Wavewalker Al Lunn: “Let’s go fishing!” The video tells the story.
