I found the foot pegs to be uncomfortable while using the rudder so I have ordered the WS Keepers Padded footpegs. I had a spray skirt for the Pungo but did not enjoy using it as it was difficult to put on the cockpit. I bought a Seals brand size 1.7 spray skirt for the Tsunami but I found it too difficult to put on the coaming of the cockpit so I borrowed a Harmony brand Large size from a local dealer until my new spray skirt comes in and it is much easier to put on. I love the secure feeling a skirt gives me while paddling in rough waters. I arrive at my destinations dry and no bilge pumping needed.
I rate the WS Tsunami 145 poly a 10 because it is an all purpose kayak. One drawback is its weight of 59 lbs (with rudder) but I think that it is a good thing because it means the polyethylene hull is thicker than most kayaks and can withstand bumping the odd rock or log resulting in minimal damage.
A good quality kayak by Wildy. Just remember that every kayak comes with basic features and needs to be outfitted for your personal comfort and style. Happy paddling!
The Advanced Elements Advance Frame Sport is great for those paddlers who can no longer lift and portage heavy kayaks or who don't have the storage space for big hardshell kayaks but still want to get out on the water. Other great features of this kayak are the 2 velcro straps on each side of the deck to hold two full size paddles, lots of storage space behind the seat and deck rigging,the easy-to-use inflate/deflate air valves, 2 molded grip handles and the puncture resistant hull material. Great little recreational kayak!!!
