Wilderness Systems Tsunami 120 Receives "Women's Adventure" Award

"Women’s Adventure” Magazine honors the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 120 with the prestigious Editor’s Choice Award.

– In the April issue of “Women's Adventure” Magazine, the editors have honored the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 120 with the prestigious Editor's Choice Award.

The “Women's Adventure” editors test over a thousand products for all sorts of outdoor pursuits and narrow the field down to the stand-outs. The Tsunami 120 was singled out for its effortless manageability on water and comfortable proportions for smaller paddlers.

“This is fantastic news and a huge honor,” said Sue Rechner, CEO of Confluence Watersports. “Women continue to be an important and growing sector of the paddling market, and our teams are designing boats with this in mind. We don't color a boat pink and call it good. We think about physiological proportions and how to reach the highest levels of performance and enjoyment for each boat and each paddler. We're very grateful to ‘Women's Adventure' for this award.”

The Tsunami 120 is a versatile touring kayak designed for day and weekend trips. Thanks to its multi-chined, V-shaped hull, it is stable and responsive, while tracking well. It is appropriate for both novice and advanced users. Check out the Tsunami 120 at the new Wilderness Systems website: http://www.wildernesssystems.com.
