Cross Over Kayaks
Wavesport Ethos 9
Both seasoned paddlers and beginners who seek to explore varying environments with one comfortable boat will enjoy the 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. Soft grip handles provide an ergonomic fit for comfortable carrying (even in cold weather) without underlying scoop-outs to hinder water shedding. These handles sit high on the deck for greater accessibility in a rescue situation. Another key feature includes a drain plug positioned near the cockpit for quick, easy draining – even while carrying. Grip zones behind the cockpit make pushing out of the boat easy, while the very distinctive, high buff polish with a matte texture finish maintains a stylish look.
