Wavesport Ethos

 

One of the most common questions we are asked from our customers is "I want a kayak that I can surf as well as paddle

around the Cornish creeks, estuaries and coastline on flat days, what is the best kayak available?" The answer is, the Wavesport Ethos. Unlike other crossover kayaks, the Ethos has a flatter hull which will perform better in the surf compared with more traditional D shape hull profiles.

 

The Wavespprt Ethos is a stable, forgiving and performance-minded crossover platform that offers a confidence-building introduction to paddling in up to class III whitewater. The hull is manoeuvrable in rapids, yet tracks well on flat water with the help of a drop down skeg system. The Ethos offers outstanding comfort on long multi-day river treks due to the roomy cockpit, sizeable gear-storage space.

 

When it comes to whitewater you can move the Ethos around the rapid smoothly and efficiently, punching through big stoppers and waves with ease. Like all crossover kayaks, the Ethos has it's limitations on whitewater, but is still fun to bounce down the rapids and is very forgiving for those less experienced on whitewater.

 

The Wavesport Ethos are available in two outfittings: BlackOut and the premium Core WhiteOut, making this boat a great choice for many different paddling situations. The BlackOut spec is great for all-round recreational paddling. The premium WhiteOut spec is for those wanting the ultimate comfort for demanding use.

 

Two size models are available - the lower volume Ethos 9 which is great for small to medium sized paddlers, and the larger volume Ethos 10 which is more suited to the larger paddler.

Delivery

We offer a delivery service for the Wavesport Ethos throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.

 

Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.

 

Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales

 

The delivery price will be shown in the shopping basket.
