Sit on Kayak or Wilderness Kayak


The Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 is a single seat sit on top kayak that is ideal for carrying up to 159kg. It is perfect for kayak angling as its easily upgraded and its also great for river exploration.

Wilderness Systems have designed the Tarpon 120 to be great for coastal exploration, longer river cruises and canal exploration. It is also a very popular choice for kayak angling. With all of these in mind they have packed it with features that make it easy and convenient to paddle and very safe to use. The first major feature was that they developed with the Tarpon 120 with a self bailing cockpit system. This relies on water draining out of the moulded in scupper drains. This system helps to give new comers to the world of paddle sport a great feeling of safety, as in the event of a capsize they can easily turn the sit on top kayak back over and any water within the cockpit area will easily drain out.

They have then packed the Tarpon kayak with lots of features that make it easy to man handle to and fro from the water, they have also included lots of potential storage. Located on the front and rear of the sit on top there are kayak carry handles. It also features side carry handles. The side handles really do help to get it on and off the car roof rack with ease. The other added bonus of the moulded in scupper drain holes is that they work very well with the Ecklasit on top trolley and also the sea to summit sit on top cart, as both of these trolleys rely on the vertical arms that locate through the scupper holes. Once out on the water to ensure you are able to take all the gear that is required, as there is lots of storage. The first of these in the large front oval Orbix hatch, there is then a second 8" round Orbix hatch located in the centre of the boat just between the paddlers knees. The final main storage area is located at the rear of the kayak and this is in the form of a tankwell. This is perfect for the storage of a dry bag such as the Palm River Trek.

It is highly important that when out kayaking for a long time the paddler has good levels of comfort. This has most certainly been fulfilled with the Tarpon 120. The main seat unit incorporates a highly padded seat and backrest unit. Both of these units are then adjustable. The back rest is easily adjusted in height to give or reduce support, while the front of the seat unit can also be increased in height to give more or less support to the thighs. Further support to the paddler is achieved by the addition of a set of Keepers footbraces

February Staff Newsletter

February was a busy month in the shop. As well as a number of reps coming to see us, and a number of visits to make, we also attended the Run, Walk, Crawl Brecon to Cardiff Ultra, and hosted a climbing shoe demo with Tenaya at local bouldering wall Spot Climbing. We still managed to get out, and members of Team Up and Under could be found in many parts of the UK; including in the Brecon Beacons, the Lakes, South Downs, Scotland, as well as further afield in Chamonix and George L still in Thailand.
