Wavesport Ethos 9 cross-over kayak

Given a chance, we’d paddle whitewater every day.  But life doesn’t always throw us what we want. That’s why we’ve designed the Ethos – to take you from one adrenalin-fueled adventure to the next. Conquer a rapid, ride a wave train and cruise on down the river in search of more.  When you need to cover some ground, chuck your camping gear in the stern hatch and still have fun – the internal bulkhead keeps your gear dry and adds reserve buoyancy. Why compromise?

The Ethos is a stable, forgiving, performance-minded crossover boat that gives you bags of confidence when paddling whitewater. The hull is manoeuvrable in rapids, yet tracks well on flat water with the help of the TruTrak drop-down skeg system.
