A new look at the super micro skiff

People who watch videos showing the Wavewalk S4 micro skiff in action have no problem realizing that it raises the bar in performance terms, beyond anything that small skiffs, Jon boats and fishing kayaks can. However, some people find it harder to understand how the S4 is built, and this is not surprising, since the S4 is unique, and revolutionary.

Recently, Wavewalk released this new technical figure (see above) that describes the S4 visually, in detail. In itself, this figure isn’t enough to provide a full understanding of all the aspects of the S4’s technical innovations, unique features, and high performance in multiple applications, but it can serve as an additional means to get a better insight.

Note the slanted sides of the cockpit that enhance performance in kayaking and canoeing, and the front deck that can serve as a stand up casting platform, which is a feature typical to microskiffs.

Also, it’s worth noting the integrated (molded-in) pairs of carry handles (total of 4) at the bow and stern, which make it so easy to carry this ultralight microskiff, as well as attach it to a vehicle or a dock, or to another boat.

Looking at the animated slideshow featuring on this website’s header is another good means for getting an instant snapshot of the Wavewalk S4 unrivaled capabilities, but eventually, learning about these things is best done by watching movies. For this reason, we recommend visiting Wavewalk Kayak and Microskiff YouTube channel »

 

 

 

Coming Soon: A New Series of Microskiff From Wavewalk

Wavewalk is adding a new line of 13′ portable microskiff to its product offering.
The new line is called Series 4 (S4), and it’s named so since it’s the company’s fourth major boat line release since 2004.
The S4 will start shipping in April 2017.

This computer generated animated video shows the S4 portable skiff with and without a spray shield, and in the three colors in which it will be offered: White, Mud Brown, and Light Gray:


The S4 features a stand up casting platform at the bow, and it will be even more stable than the 700 series.
You’d have to get a large-size Jon boat if you wanted to be more stable than what this patented 38″ wide twin-hull (catamaran) can offer you.
Still, due to the slanted sides of its 8′ long cockpit, this skiff will deliver a better paddling experience than what wide canoes and fishing kayaks may deliver, and this is good news for flats fishermen and other anglers who like to fish in skinny water.

At 98 lbs, the S4 is definitely a car-topper, and a fully portable boat, namely one that frees its owner from the need to transport and store it on a trailer, and launch at boat ramps…

The S4 will take a payload of up to 680 lbs, which means that it will take on board two big and heavy anglers and their fishing and camping gear, plus an outboard motor.

The S4 will take an outboard motor up to 6 HP, and it will have even better offshore capabilities than the 700 series.
