Both seasoned paddlers and beginners who seek to explore varying environments with one comfortable boat will enjoy the Wave Sport Ethos' confidence-building features in up to class III rapids. It is performance-minded, easy to roll, and features a large, comfortable cockpit with ample storage space - perfect on long days or multi-day river treks. Key performance features in the Ethos include a full whitewater foot brace system, a whitewater-focused rocker profile and a progressive chine that helps beginners learn the feeling of ‘edging' in a stable, reliable design. These features combined with the river running style peaked bow allow the Ethos to punch rapids, resurface quickly, and move swiftly downriver. It is maneuverable in rapids, yet tracks well on flat water with the help of a dropdown skeg system.

This boat is everything that I imagined it would be. Fast, stable and maneuverable. Great outfitting and highly adjustable. Performs well on flat water with the skeg down. Does equally well on class 3 white water. Truly a dry storage hatch as well.
