Canoe and Kayak Store is an independently owned, specialist paddle-sport store based in Gloucestershire. We also have a store in South Wales inside the Cardiff International White Water Centre, where you can demo our boats and paddles on the course.

Our roots trace back to the year 2000 when Richard (having paddled since he was a child) was offered the chance to buy a canoe business. Loving the industry but not liking the company he decided to set up his own – opening a shop in Gloucestershire and leading to where we are today!

    Description

    Season :

    Code : 002412

    Weight : 0KG

    The Wavesport Recon 83 in Red is for the intermediate or advanced creeker who knows what they want and how to get it. If you intend on getting downstream as safely as possible, whilst still performing to the highest levels of creeking and Class IV & V+ rapids, this is the vessel for you.

    Fitted with Wavesport’s new CORE WhiteOut Outfitting System which is unique to the creeker version, you can be safe in the knowledge that the rotomolded seat is more effective at preventing entrapment and more efficient in energy transfer from the paddler to the kayak – making the act of boundary pushing safer than ever before.

    The Red Wavesport Recon 83 has a continuous rocker profile that makes this kayak very fast and easy to boof when combined with its unique distribution of volume. You needn’t worry about resurfacing and unloading water quickly either, the Wavesport Recon 83 has a pronounced upswept shape and a unique volume distribution that means this isn’t a problem and the generous side wall flare provides additional substantial stability whilst carving and tracking.

    The kayak’s ergonomic shape not only offers comfortable carrying during the coldest weather, but also improves the safety of the vessel. With seven separate points of rescue, you can be sure that no matter the situation, the strategically placed handles allow for greater accessibility. Additionally, a reinforced bulkhead footbrace system lessens the risk of foot entrapment during heavy impact and the ratcheting leg lifter provides superb levels of comfort and storage space.

    If aesthetics are a concern then look no further, with a distinctive, high-buff polish and matte texture finish, this kayak for the advanced paddler is sure to turn heads.

    Features:

    • 3 Security Grab Handles
    • 2 Security Bars
    • Safety Step-Out Wall with Carry Handle
    • Rotomolded Tank Style Seat with Adjustable Ratcheting Leg Lifter
    • 2 Soft Grip Security Grab Handles
    • Auto-Adjusting Bulkhead Footbrace with Foam Padding
    • Quick Fore/Aft Seat Adjustment
    • CORE WhiteOut Outfitting System
    • Forward Ratcheting Backband

    Buyers Guide

    Which Wave Sport Kayak is right for me?

     

    This is Creeking - Recon

    The Recon will get paddlers down river safely while performing at the highest levels of creeking and class IV-V+ boating, enhancing a paddler's confidence and skill sets in the process to make boundary pushing safer than ever before.  
     
    The continuous rocker profile combined with the unique distribution of volume makes this design very fast and easy to boof. The unique volume in the bow and its pronounced, upswept shape make the Recon resurface and unload water quickly when blasting through holes, while the domed stern deck minimises back-ending in holes and drops.  The location of the full stern chine combined with the generous side wall flare provides superb secondary stability and substantial control when carving, ferrying, or tracking.  The Recon is also equipped with seven points of rescue and strategically placed soft grip handles for greater accessibility. The Recon was designed for intermediate and advanced paddlers who want best-in-class performance and maximum safety features while enjoying both multi-day river trips and tackling class IV & V+ rapids.
     
    Available in Core WhiteOut Outfitting only.
     
     

    This is River Run - Diesel

    A TO B and everything in between. Half big water, half technical, all AWESOME.
    Point A.  Point B.  And all the points between.  Are you skirting over a jumble of manky rocks to line up for a 15-foot boof? Or maybe you're in the midst of a rapid that reminds you of the Zambezi at flood.  Either way, you need a kayak that deals with any situation Mother Earth throws at you. River running is half white-knuckle big water, half technical and all fun. And it's our job to keep it that way.  So we've given you a boat that is made for the paddler who wants everything...  And then some.
     
    Available in Core WhiteOut Outfitting or BlackOut Outfitting.
     
     

    This is River Play - Fuse

    For the river runners out there who still crave some freestyle love, we’ve got your back. Our river running playboats get you down river in one piece while allowing you to surf the playspots. Expect the forgiveness of a river runner and the high-performance loose hull of a freestyle boat. If you’re a river runner who sprints to surf every wave and hole along the way, you’ve come to the right place. The Fuse is also available in in a junior size (Fuse 35) for the younger or smaller paddler.

    Available in BlackOut Outfitting only

     

    This is Crossover - Ethos

    Stable and forgiving. Performance-minded crossover platform.
    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-fueled 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 Ethos is a stable, forgiving, performance-minded crossover platform that offers a confidence- building introduction to paddling whitewater. The hull is manoeuvrable in rapids, yet tracks well on flat water with the help of a drop down skeg system. Offering outstanding comfort on long, multi-day river treks due to the roomy cockpit, sizeable gear-storage space and our trusty BlackOut seat system.
     
    Available in Core WhiteOut Outfitting or BlackOut Outfitting.
     
     

    This is Club Life - D Series

    Open your mind. Crave adventure. Fuel your progression.
    The original king of river-runners has a reputation on the water that preceeds it.  Smooth and stable, quick and nimble, responsive and predictable.  With outfitting tweaked for club paddlers and fleet users, the D-Deries is the perfect introduction to the world of kayaking.
     
    The D65 Club is an ideal platform for small to medium sized paddlers looking to learn and improve their basic skills on upto grade 2 water.
     
    Available in Club Outfitting only.

In such cases, we will inform you by email or telephone as soon as possible to make alternative arrangements. This may involve carriage charges which will be agreed prior to delivery. If you collect the goods, any delivery charges will be refunded.

We accept no liability if the delivery is not made due to the recipient not being available. If the recipient fails to collect the parcel or arrange redelivery in good time the goods will be returned to us and a charge will be made for redelivery to that or an alternative address.

    In the event that you select a business address for delivery, we shall be deemed to have delivered the order to its intended recipient by delivering it to the reception area of the business address.

    Our standard charge for international deliveries is £15 however this is for small items only. There may be an additional charge for larger or more valuable items. Please contact us by email or telephone for a quoted delivery charge. Orders will be sent either by post or with a carrier and usually require a signature on receipt.

    Wavesport Recon Core Whiteout Margarita Kayak ,  On

    I fell in love with this boat when I borrowed one to paddle my very first waterfall in Chile. I knew right then that I had to have one of my very own! The Recon is the sort of boat that feels like it looks after you when you're vulnerable and pushing your limits. Its the perfect steep-creeker for adrenaline junkies! I know that people moan about it being heavy but now that Wave Sport boats are British made they have even reduced the weight. Happy days :-)

    Hi, My name is

    My question about Wavesport Recon Core Whiteout Margarita Kayak is...
    Pre-Order

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

    Pre-Launch

    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
