Waka Tuna 2.0
The Tuna was designed by Kenny Mutton in 2011. It was first showcased in the Adidas Sickline Extreme Kayak World Championship where, in the Tuna, Sam Sutton managed to take the win by 2.3 seconds. From there the Tuna has gone on to be the most successful kayak on the extreme racing circuit, winning almost every extreme race it has ever entered. In Sickline this year the Tuna still gained the fastest overall time and set new course record.
Previously manufactured by New Zealand company Bliss-stick, the Tuna exploded on to the kayak scene but many disappointed paddlers have just not been able to get hold of one. The Tuna has been much sought after but there have been few on the market. For this reason, Waka Kayaks has brought the mould to Europe, added the expertise of Mike Nekar and we are set to supply the waiting market with a top quality product.
The Tuna has a design that will make you feel like a pro, No other creek boat performs in the same way. The first time you boof or accelerate off a wave this becomes very obvious as the Tuna starts to plane. The release edges allow it to still be manoeuvrable at speed making a change of direction no problem. The Tuna's unique tail reduces back looping and stopping in holes. It has plenty of room for gear to make it a great multi day boat.
