Wave Sport Recon

The Wave Sport Recon is a new displacement hull creek boat that comes in three sizes. With lots of input from creek master Bryan Kirk and other WaveSport team members, the Recon is WaveSport’s answer to the recent wave of displacement hull creek boats, like the Pyranha Shiva and Liquid Logic Stomper or Jackson Villain.

The Recon is available in a value package from Colorado Kayak Supply… save 10%!

Here’s what Wave Sport has to say about the boat:

“The continuous rocker profile combined with the unique distribution of volume makes the Recon very fast and easy to boof. The unique volume in the bow and its pronounced, upswept shape make the Recon resurface and unload water quickly when blasting through holes, while the domed stern deck minimized back-ending in holes and drops. The location of the full stern chine combined with the generous side wall flare provides superb secondary stability and substantial control when carving, moving across a current, or tracking.”

Looks like corporate would have done well to run terms like “back-ending” and “moving across a current” by the likes of Bryan Kirk, but we’ll cut them some slack. As the video below demonstrates, the team had a lot of input on the design, so it’s got a good shot at being a winner.

    I can't wait to try the Recon 70! Too bad it's almost a year wait, but I bet it'll be worth it! As a smaller paddler who loves creeking, I'm looking forward to a boat that fits me well and will take my boating to the next level. Wahoo!

      Well, next May. Have you tried the Stomper 80? could be great for the smaller size if you don't want to wait!

    A note on the availability – the 93 will be available on 11/1/12, not next year. The 83 should be in shops on 10/1/12. As for the 70, the very latest it will be out is the beginning of May – but we've got some very motivated individuals in R&D to get it in production a lot sooner.

      Thanks for the heads up on release dates, Kirk. I've corrected that in the post. Cheers, looking forward to paddling it!

      So I'll expect May and maybe hopefully be surprised beforehand. Either way, good job by the looks of it! Wavesport has had a legacy of awesome boats, and I look forward to trying its newest member :) !
