Wave Sport has nurtured a big water obsession for more than two decades, and this week the brand enters a new category that will open up the whitewater world to more paddlers than ever before. The new Ethos, available today, pioneers the river trekking category in the Wave Sport family of boats and offers confidence-building performance for whitewater newcomers and comfort and reliability for seasoned paddlers embarking on longer trips.
Wave Sport Ethos: Introducing the river trekking category to the Wave Sport line, the Ethos is a stable, forgiving, crossover platform. With more whitewater performance attributes than other designs in this category, the Ethos offers a confidence-building introduction to paddling in up to class III whitewater. The hull is maneuverable in rapids, yet tracks well on flat water with the help of a dropdown skeg system. The Ethos offers outstanding comfort on long, multi-day river treks due to the roomy cockpit, sizeable gear-storage space, and Wave Sport’s new, highly adjustable outfitting system.
