Wavesport Ethos

The Wavesport Ethos Nine and Ten are a multi purpose kayak designed to take on both whitewater and touring. The Ethos performs well when paddled over longer distances on sea, harbours and rivers, but is still capable of hadnling lower grade whitewater.

The hull shape of the Ethos means that it tracks well, and the skeg helps to keep it in line even more, it is also very stable which means is great for inspringing confidence in novice paddlers. The Ethos is also very comfortable in either outfitting, which makes it easy to paddle for extended periods of time. The large rear storage area with sealed bulkhead and rubber hatch cover give plenty of storage space for all your day trip essentials and even over night paddles.

The Ethos offers a great balance of tracking ability versus manouverability and on whitewater you can move the Ethos around rapids easily and smoothly whilst punching through stoppers and waves is easy thanks to its hull speed. Whilst the Ethos is not an all out whitewater kayak and does have its limitations, it is a fun boat to paddle on lower grades and is a great introductory whitewater kayak.

The Wavesport Ethos is available in 2 sizes the Ethos 9 & Ethos 10 to suit all shapes and sizes of paddler. The Ethos 9 & 10 are also available in two different outfitting options - WhiteOut & CORE WhiteOut.
