New to the U.S. in 2017, Innova Kayaks would like to introduce the Seawave inflatable kayak. The Seawave has previously been sold in Europe, and is currently the most popular inflatable kayak there. Innova predicts that this will be their best-selling kayak for 2017, and they believe that the demand for the Seawave will exceed the supply.
At 14'9" long and 31" wide, the Seawave is long and narrow, but it's more than capable of being zippy while maintaining stability and maneuverability. It's popularity stems from its adaptability and ability to convert from an open, sit on top kayak to a one or two person sit inside kayak. This is easily done by adding and changing the removable decks. These decks are not included with the Seawave, but we have the 1 person deck here, and the 2 person deck here! Another option for the Seawave is a foot operated rudder. This rudder is of the highest engineering, and is constructed to challenge high winds and keep the Seawave tracking.We also have the Seawave foot rudder available for purchase, right here! Pictures of both deck covers and the foot rudder below!
The Seawave includes a 100 L. dry transport backpack - which the boat will easily roll up into - a repair kit (includes adapter), and a sponge
WEIGHT: 41 lbs.
AIR CHAMBERS: 3, inflating to 3 psi. each
INCLUDES: 100 L. transport backpack, repair kit (includes adapter), and a sponge
Founded over 20 years ago, Innova Kayaks is the North American distributor of popular European inflatable kayaks, manufactured by Gumotex in the Czech Republic. Since then, Innova has sold flat water and moderate whitewater inflatable boats.
Unlike many other inflatables, Innova Kayaks’ boats are made from rubber – not PVC. This rubber material, Nitrylon™, is a lamination of nitrile synthetic rubber and natural rubber over a 1,200-denier, low stretch polyester fabric. Nitrylon™ is very puncture and abrasion resistant, and considerably stronger and better performing than PVC. This same material is actually used in high-end, Zodiac-Type tenders and high-end whitewater rafts. Each Innova boat has 3 main air chambers, plus other small ones for seats, decks, etc. These air chambers inflate to an industry-leading 3 psi, compared to the 2 psi capacity of most inflatable kayaks.
Green is one way to describe Innova Kayaks. PVC gives off dioxins into the environment. Not only is Nitrylon™ stronger and better performing than PVC, but it is also very eco-friendly. It can easily be recycled, and in 2010, Innova started the first inflatable kayak and canoe recycling program.
Convenience & Portability
In this day and age, people are traveling and moving around more than ever before in history. Convenience is becoming less of a luxury and more of a necessity. Innova’s boats fully inflate in just minutes, and when you’re done, they fold up small enough to fit into a bag the size of a small duffle bag. They are lightweight, very easy to carry and transport, and can be stored in tight places – even in an airplane as carry-on.
Awards & Recognition
Over the years, Innova Kayaks has been the recipient of many awards, endorsements, and features in the boat and boat fishing industries. The quality, convenience, and track record of Innova Kayaks proves that they have THE boats you want to own.
