About this model:
Longer than its 14.5ft counterpart, the Tsunami 165 has a long waterline for effective tracking plus speed and efficiency over longer distances.
With a roomy cockpit (90 cm long x 49 cm wide), the Tsunami 165 can accommodate a wide range of paddler builds -- small, medium, and large-sized kayakers will find this kayak comfortable.
Ample storage in the three hatches (aft, fore, and easy-reach day hatch) for day trips or multi-day trips.
Fitted with a rudder (controlled by foot pedals) so you can stay on-track in a cross-wind more easily (or turn). Rudder-style: retractable, so you can tuck it up when launching/landing; deployed with a pull-cord beside the paddler's waist.
