Wavesport Ethos


If you want a fast boat which can tackle flat water and white water expeditions look no further.


The Ethos provides a stable, forgiving, and confidence inspiring crossover which can navigate easy white water while tracking well on the flat and choppy waters of the sea. This makes it an ideal crossover that’s well suited to paddling on slow moving rivers, canals, harbours and light costal conditions.


Designed for the flat water tourer and low grade white water adventure in mind. The hull and edges mean it will carve into turns enabling greater control and performance while the added length over the normal river runner provides increased speed which along with rocker allows you to push through waves and rapids in your way.


The Ethos comes with a Full sized adjustable foot plate meaning that control on white water paddles isn’t a problem, you can paddle with confidence with the fully adjustable backrest, Low-Profile Thigh Braces keeping you connected with the boat improving handling and comfort. When it comes to covering distance the straight line tracking of the TruTrak Skeg means that beginners are able to stay straight with ease and means you are able to save energy on adjusting your direction enabling you to power on throughout the day.


Available in both ‘Core WhiteOut’ and ‘WhiteOut’ outfitting you can chose a spec which is right for your own personal paddling. With ‘WhiteOut’ offering a comfortable ‘WhiteOut’ padded seat, forward ratcheting back band and adjustable seat and thigh braces. The ‘Core WhiteOut’ upgrades including a ratcheting leg lifter offering 7.5cm of elevation for added adjustability, easier access to storage space behind the seat and multiple attachment points, security tethers for securing gear and finally including hip pads which adapt into a shoulder pad whilst carrying the boat to provide extra comfort.


The roomy cockpit along with stern storage and bulkhead means that you can carry everything you will need while exploring or on a multi-day expedition. Soft Grip Grab Handle and outfitting adjustment, means that comfort while portaging and paddling is not an issue.
