My new kayak arrives...It's an exciting day. My Wilderness Systems http://www.wildernesssystems.com/ Tsunami 140 is delivered to my home in Alexandria VA after its journey by truck from Hood River OR.
I'm a novice at paddle sports, but my research has narrowed my choices to the Boreal Design Kasko and the Wilderness Systems Tsunami. Both get very good reviews.
My decision is based on the Wilderness Systems seat design, additional day hatch, and a good package deal from Outdoorplay.com http://outdoorplay.com/
that includes an AT carbon fiber paddle and a Tropical Tour spray skirt.
The package price delivered to my home is unbeatable. Follow the gallery for the delivery and maiden voyage of my kayak.
My experience with Outdoorplay was excellent. Phone and e-mail response was top notch. Delivery to my home was prompt and painless. My boat was delivered at 3:00 PM and it was in the water at 4:00 PM.
I am a happy paddler.
