The Wilderness Systems Tsunami Rudder Kit helps you gain control and efficiency in wind or fast current. The Wilderness Systems Tsunami Rudder Kit is the factory rudder for the Wilderness Systems Tsunami series, Tarpon series, Pamlico Series, and Ride Series and Perception Essence kayaks. The Rudder Ready kit is for all 2009 - 2014 Wilderness Kayaks with cable tubing already installed. This kit includes all the necessary parts, hardware, and instructions to install a rudder on your boat. The Rudder Ready kits will not fit 2015 model year kayaks, you will need the Course Control rudder.
Easy to install, works like a dream on rivers with lots of obstacles in the stream, if you can't buy one steal one they are that good...
the rudder kit itself was easy to install however the foot peg bolts to not align exactly. rather they are almost 1/4 in off. while this is not a problem to repair for myself. people without plastic repair experience will not be able to fit it properly.
Great price, customer service and shipping. I tried to get this kit from our local kayak store but they just couldn't get close to the price offered (with a great coupon) by ACK. I had our local store install the rudder kit and it looks good on my wife's Tsunami 175 and works great. Happy paddling!
This rudder can be very easy to install. I wish the instructions were a little more clear. I have installed 3 of these rudders and by the 3rd one I am quite adept at it. Still a great and easy product to use.
