Wavesport Diesel


The Wavesport Diesel is a versatile and predictable river running kayak that has been popular for many years thanks to its ability to take on some of the hardest whitewater without removing the fun element from lower grade water. You can still surf and play around on river waves and holes, but when you need it the Diesel has the straight line speed and volume to get you through even the gnarliest features.


The Diesel's volume is well distributed and the addition of 'peaked' deck lines allows stable resurfacing of the boat from below drops and waves. The crisp rails and flat hull allow for the paddler to carve super fast turns and play river features on demand. This boat has been proven to spin on green waves, but it's also fully capable of running harder rapids.


Easy to roll and predictable, the Diesel is available in 3 sizes to suit a wide range of paddlers and a choice of two levels of outfitting depending on your budget and level of paddling.


Wavesports CORE WhiteOut play outfitting is specifically designed to maximise contact with the kayak and ensure you have maximum control. The CORE system incorporates easily adjustable seat with ratchet leg lifters as well as ratchet backrest, foam hip pads and auto-adjusting bulkhead footrest.


The new Blackout Diesel still features the same superb hull design as the WhiteOut, but incorporates a slightly more basic seat design to keep the price low and very affordable for those just getting into whitewater kayaking. The Blackout Diesel is probably the best river running boat on the market at this price range, and is sure to be popular with less experienced paddlers who still want a current design without the hefty price tag.


Combine the legendary Wavesport quality with the option of two outfitting level and this boat is perfect for both developing paddlers and those looking to run higher end white water, whilst still having the ability to surf and play the river when the opportunity arises.
