The OG was designed purely on making a kayak that gives you confidence while keeping you dry, high, and looking fly. To do this, Waka took from, what many people say is the best kayak ever made, the Waka Tuna 1 and added more rocker and some sexy lines to create the OG. More than anything, Waka is stoked to have a kayak that makes you feel like you are the man or the woman.
Waka never wanted just a super fast boat in this design. They also wanted paddlers to walk up, scout a hole, and say, “Even if I miss my boof, the OG will get me through”.
The OG has some aggressive rails on the bottom. Aniol, Sven, and the Waka team discovered they work perfectly. You can steer the kayak with the rail and still turn on a dime with a sweep. Not to mention the effortless flat spins while surfing on a wave. They help the kayak stay on top of the water so you stay as dry as possible.
Equipped with easy to adjust outfitting, Waka wanted to have strong but fast adjustment to our outfitting to ensure it caters for everyone from schools to experts.
Seat // 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.
Hip Pads // Shaped pads that Velcro to the seat. Also they have two straps that go around the seat to prevent loosing them in a swim. Provided are two extra pads for each side for easy adjustment. You can put one or two pads between the shaped pad and the seat as required.
Back-band // The back-band is extremely comfortable. It has two ratchets and ladders, making it easy to adjust and tighten. Adjust it even more by altering the length of webbing on the back of the back-band. The back-band mounted to allow for easy access to any safety equipment or overnight gear stored behind the seat.
Thigh braces // 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 too much or want easier exiting from your boat you can easily trim the braces down 5mm-10mm preferably with a rasp.
Foot-block // 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.
