Wave Sport Recon 83 Kayak - Reconnaissance is the military term for exploring beyond the area occupied by friendly forces. While the creeks may call out to us, the forces of the river don't always welcome our exploration. Performing at the highest levels of creeking and class IV/V+ boating, the Recon from Wave Sport handles creeks and runs rivers efficiently, confidently and safely. The continuous rocker profile combined with the unique distribution of volume makes the Recon very fast and easy to boof. The volume in the bow and its pronounced, upswept shape make the Recon resurface and shed water quickly when blasting through holes. And the domed stern deck minimized stern squirting in holes and drops. The location of the full stern chine combined with the generous side wall flare provides superb secondary stability and substantial control when carving, edging, crossing eddy lines, or tracking. The Recon is also equipped with seven rescue points to provide maximum safety. The arched bow and stern soft grip handles provide ergonomic fit for comfortable carrying. The new handles sit higher on the boat for greater accessibility in a rescue situation and there are no scoop outs to hinder water shedding. The Recon is also equipped with Wave Sport's new CORE WhiteOut outfitting system that offers highly adjustable seating for greater comfort and a safer auto-adjusting bulkhead system to reduce the risk of entrapment. This boat's aesthetic features include a very distinctive, high buff polish with a matte texture finish. Creeking is all about the journey and the adventures that define you. With the Recon Whitewater kayak from Wave Sport you'll have best-in-class performance and maximum safety features for advanced paddlers, and superb secondary stability and control that appeals to beginners as well as intermediate paddlers. Where will your journey take you?
Don't forget a cockpit cover! A Seals 1.4 deck cockpit cover will fit the Recon 83 kayak.
I had the pleasure of demo'ing one of the protos. Was a bit larger for what I'm used to as the medium size fit. It's got an extra 10 gallons or so over what I regularly paddle. The Recon floated me high and I bombed over every rapid. Sweet lines, too! Not so keen on the white seats but I said that when Wave Sport introduced white outfitting last year. Overall, I'd say WS has a winner on their hands! Can't wait til they're readily available.
