Wave Excel Reviews

I recently had the opportunity to paddle one of these for an extended period of 2 years. I also have the Thunderbolt-X so I was very aware of what to expect. The Excel is shorter at 19' and has more volume in the bow, which is something appealing for downriver racing and going over waves or popping up from the occasional shallow hole quickly. This boat does not disappoint. In a world that has switched to skis, this boat is a great throw-back and will provide a level of protection from the elements that skis simply don't deliver (burnt shins anyone?) At 18" wide it is surprisingly stable. If you have the chance to get one of these boats grab it. Excellent combination of speed-stability. Great for flat water training or using as an ultra-marathon boat down gentle rivers.
