Wavewalk sells its fishing kayaks directly to clients in Australia. This means that Australian clients can import their W kayak individually, all by themselves.
Australia, which is the world’s second biggest market for fishing kayaks, after the United States is also a fast growing market.
Australians love the outdoors, and they love water as well, which is why they spend as much time as they can sailing, boating, fishing, kayaking… and even kayak fishing.
The Northeast of the United States offers an abundance of both freshwater and saltwater locales for fishing, and it’s regarded as one of the best regions in the world as far as fishing is concerned. But due to the Northeast’s generally colder climate, it’s sometimes not as easy to go kayak fishing as in warmer climates like the South. Therefore, you’d find less kayak anglers in this region.
When fishing out of W kayaks is concerned, many anglers in the Northeast have been switching from canoes, common fishing kayaks, and motorboats to this new type of kayak that offers more advantages than any of this watercraft, both inland and offshore.
This online magazine features a special section dedicated to kayak fishing in the Northeast, which includes numerous trip reports, reviews, pictures and movies, rigging tips, and more, from the region’s finest kayak anglers.
Insofar, Midwestern anglers have been hesitant to adopt kayaks as an accepted fishing platform. There is a long list of reasons that factor into this general reluctance, but they all seem to boil down to one genesis – the cold that is so intrinsic to this region.
It is indisputable that the climate in the Midwest is not nearly as nice and warm as in the southern states, where kayak fishing is the most prevalent, and sit-in, SOT and hybrid kayaks don’t offer much protection for their passengers from capsizing, or from cold weather and water.
But kayak fishing in cold water and weather now has a kayak that offers both much more stability than the other kayak types can, as well as better protection.
This magazine, Kayak Fishing Unlimited, has a permanent section dedicated to Kayak Fishing in the Midwest. This section features trip reports and fishing kayak reviews from Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, and Ohio, as well as reviews of rigged fishing kayaks, and even some information about hunting from kayaks, and stories about motorized fishing kayaks.
It only makes sense that you want your fishing kayak to be as stable as possible to eliminate the stress of having to deal with a possible capsizing. In addition, you want to have the ability to stand erect in full confidence, while paddling and while fishing, and there simply does not exist a sit-in or SOT kayak on the market that can realistically offer this option….
Outfitting your kayak with outriggers may help in achieving better stability, but at a price –
First, you need to understand what makes a fishing kayak stable (or unstable), and then what adding outriggers (a.k.a. stabilizers) to your fishing kayak can achieve >>
Great news for kayakers and anglers in Florida:
Jeff Taubes, founder of Florida Fishing Kayaks, is Wavewalk’s newest dealer in Southwest Folrida. Says Jeff:
-“I love to fish and have been doing it since I was a child. I had considered purchasing a boat but the cost of ownership and maintenance had kept me from making the leap. The next best thing for me was a fishing kayak. After my first experience of actually fishing in a kayak I realized that the awkward position and subsequent sore back made it much less enjoyable than I was hoping for. I went on a search for a better way and came across the Wavewalk kayak. I was so impressed with the functionality and design of the Wavewalk that I decided to become a dealer for the southwest Florida area.
I can outfit your W kayak for you, and advise you about rigging it for fishing.”
