The Wahooo is the current outrigger canoe design from Ocean Swell. Building on the success of the Piranha , the Wahooo has been designed for Australia’s open water conditions, to maximize the full potential of our ocean swells while still providing excellent power into wind and flat water speed. The Wahooo is more streamlined than the Piranha with a reduced beam of 360mm (14”) and shorter overall length of 6.2m (20’ 5”) while still providing maximum buoyancy for minimum wetted area thus providing less drag to power ratio.
Extremely fast and agile, the Wahooo is designed for all weather and race conditions. Excellent flat water speed, superior into wind performance and a joy for the down hind enthusiasts. High position front iako mount ensures water clearance and well veed deck provides volume and quick water shedding. A veed rear tail deck also allows the clearance of water, enabling the canoe to accelerate down the back of the waves whilst punching out.
Being agile the Wahooo gives the paddler a feel for the bumps, like riding a short surfboard. Whilst enjoying the ride the paddler can experience the comfort of a carbon encased computer cut seat that gives max comfort and flexibility with a fully adjustable sliding track. So much so, these seats are highly sort after by other brand canoe paddlers, check out our Accessories for details.
