Waka kayaks are excited to present our newest and perhaps most amazing creation to date. The Steeze is a boat that has been created from our passion to deliver the kayak we as paddlers most want. Our desire is to have a boat that makes kayaking even more fun whilst not having to compromise on the features that a modern-day creek boat brings when that epic run comes in.
With the Steeze we have kept a creek boat nose with lots of rocker to keep you moving forward whilst cutting the volume off the tail to enable the paddler to whippy up a storm and pivot turn everywhere they want. We have also designed a pod to attach through 4 inserts to gain the extra volume required when shit gets real. The Steeze will be 300L with an additional 60L with the pod attached. Coming in at 273cm long We are aiming for a total weight of 23kg with Pod.
|Paddler weight:||60-110 kg|

Easy to adjust outfitting is what the Steeze has been equipped with. We wanted to have strong but fast adjustment to our outfitting to ensure it caters for everyone from schools to experts.
The seat is Roto-moulded. It has three screw holes under the hip pads on seat tab to adjust the seat position. Just loosen two screws and the seat will slide forward and backwards. The seat is very comfortable, especially over longer periods of time.
Shaped pads are provided that velcro onto the seat. Also they have two straps that go around the seat to provent loosing them in a swim. Two extra pads for each side are provided for easy adjustment. You can put one or two pads between the shaped pad and the seat as required.
The back-band is extremely comfortable. It has two ratchets and ladders, making it easy to adjust and tighten. It can be adjusted even more by altering the length of webbing on the back of the back-band. The back-band has been mounted to allow for easy access to any safety equipment or overnight gear stored behind the seat.
The thigh braces are extremely comfortable. They are simple, light weight and most importantly, very effective, giving you perfect control.
The thigh braces in the Steeze have purposely been left longer for extra knee grip for the full on boaters. If you find this is to much or want easier exiting from your boat you can easily trim the braces down 5mm-10mm preferably with a rasp.
The foot-block is fully adjustable thanks to four thumb-nuts on the inside of the hull. The width of the foot-block is also adjustable, depending on the position of the foot block.
