I absolutely love this kayak! I’ve had this kayak for three years now and couldn’t be happier. I’m a 6 ft. 2 in. male and at the time I was looking for something to get into kayaking with that would allowing me to do some weekend trips. When I purchased the kayak I was closing in on 250 lbs so the Tsunami 145 was one of the few boats that offered enough capacity for me and camping gear. I just so happened to stumble upon this boat on kijiji and it was 3 years old at the time and looked like new. I snatched it up right away!

The seat is extremely comfortable and the boat tracks well. Although it is relatively wide when compared to nice sea kayaks, it is still very fast and it’s dual bulkheads ensure it’s buoyancy. I have had this out on Lake Ontario multiple times with big waves and it will float right over them and surfs well. When it’s windy sometimes I wish I had the rudder, but I haven’t put one on as most of the time it’s not an issue for me. The kayak can be fitted with a rudder however. The cockpit is large enough for someone of my size to easily get in, however not so large that you feel as though you have no control over the boat. With the thigh hooks and the adjustable feet posts you have plenty of control. You don’t have to be big guy to fit in this boat though, I have shared this kayak with people between 5 ft. and 6 ft. and nobody has had an issue with it being too large.
