Wavesport Ethos 9

Given a chance, we'd paddle whitewater every day.  But life doesn't always throw us what we want. That's why we've designed the Ethos - to take you from one adrenaline-fuelled adventure to the next. Conquer a rapid, ride a wave train and cruise on down the river in search of more.  When you need to cover some ground, carry all the kit and still have fun, why compromise?

The ultimate crossover platform with more whitewater performance attributes than other designs in its category. The Ethos is fitted with our full whitewater foot-brace system and has a whitewater focused rocker profile and progressive chines that bring outstanding speed and control. Uncompromised comfort on long river days or multi-day treks is made possible with our CORE WhiteOut Seat System, roomy cockpit and sizeable gear storage space. 

The CORE Play Seat provides the ultimate level of adjustment and fit, making it easy to adjust your seat position on the fly.  Intuitive controls allow 10cm of fore and aft seat adjustment - allowing you to tune your position for that perfect balance on the river.  The hull beam is also welded to the kayak for extra durability and stiffness.

Outfitting comprises of the CORE Leg Lifter - providing 7.5cm of elevation, allowing for more efficient energy transfer from the paddler to the kayak.  Low-Profile Thigh Braces offer good grip whilst maximising on cockpit room. Our unique Flip-Over Carry Hip Pads provide and extra level of comfort when paddling and then flip over to give extra shoulder padding for carrying the kayak.  The backband, hip pads and seat all covered in our stylish, marine vinyl white pads

If you want the ultimate level of outfitting, then you have found it in CORE WhiteOut.
