I recently bought this kayak from Austin Kayak from their Austin store out of their rental fleet (I guess they swap out the boats yearly with newer models). I bought the boat at a nearly 50% discount, and other than a few scratches the boat is in great condition (and I got the factory warranty). I have added a rudder (installed by ACK for free because I bought the boat from them), I could not be happier with the money spent and how much value I am getting out of it. Now on to the review: Pros: 1. The boat is very fast and easy to handle. Even without the rudder, it tracks very very well, (compared to cheap "recreational" kayaks or my Ocean Kayak Torque/Trident 13). 2. The boat is quite well-made. This model is the polyethylene, lesser cost version (Wilderness makes the same boat out of composite materials at a greater cost/weight) version. Both the fore and aft compartments are large and watertight (tested by filling the cockpit with water). Everything is conveniently placed as with most sea kayaks with all the appropriate lines (for paddle float re- entry/safety) and deck bungees. 3. The seat is simply amazing! It is the "phase 3 pro air" made by Wilderness systems and is fully adjustable and positioned well to keep puddling water from soaking your posterior. The seat alone is probably worth what I paid for the boat. If you have the opportunity, sit in one of these in the showroom, and you will feel the difference. The seat also "breathes" to allow air flow under and behind so the experience is not a sticky, sweaty mess in warmer weather as is common with neoprene style seats. 4. This boat is a real touring sea kayak evidenced by the sealed compartments. Granted, it is on the lower end of the spectrum in terms of cost, but i would feel as comfortable in this kayak far from shore (ocean) as any kayak costing many time the price. 5. The boat is very light (about 40lbs) and easy to load ,especially compared with my angling kayak. 6. Stable. This kayak is difficult to turn over. This stability probably comes at a price in performance, but as this is my first seak kayak, this is a desirable thing. WIlderness makes two more expensive series (Focus and Zephyr) of sea kayaks that presumably have faster hull speeds, but are less stable. Cons (not big things, but worth noting): 1. The hatch seals can be difficult to close completely. They are press on, and care must be taken to fully seal all 360 degrees of the circular covers. Also, for cartop or trailer travel you will want these completely sealed. The hatch covers are leashed to the boat, but it seems possible that these could break loose in a strong wind (such as 70 mph driving down the road) if not properly sealed. 2. As noted above, this is not the fastest hull type, but I opted for stability vs speed.

The Wilderness Systems Tsunami 140 Kayak is great. I'm 6'2 200# and it goes good I just wish I bought a longer one. I think this is going to be given to my girlfriend because I just bought a Hurricane Tracer 165.

I have had three other kayaks, including a 13 foot hobie quest, and a stellar 14 fiberglass, this is by far my favorite. It tracks well, fits like a glove and is so much more comfortable than any other kayak seating system. I have occasional back issues, but I can sit comfortably in this for hours without feeling uncomfortable. I like it so much I just bought my second one, so others can keep up with me. I use it in bays and in the coastal waters.

I just purchased a Wilderness Systems Tsunami 140. While I havent used it yet and probably wont until the spring, I am very impressed with the quality of the kayak. I also was very satisfied with Austin Canoe & Kayak..their sales people, the price, shipping cost and delivery time. My kayak arrived in perfect shape. I will definitely buy from them in the future
