My first boat was a MicroX and I loved the thing. There was a time, back in the day, that many of the MWAers all had Extremes or other Wavesport boats. I remember the Frank, the X, Y and Z. I was only big enough for the Frank and the X and loved them. I remember bumming people’s EZ and having a great time on the Ocoee way back when. And I remember the debate of crosslinked plastic at a time when people were swapping boats nearly every year. Wavesports were always more heavy than others due to that plastic but nearly indestructible.
Bil….bo is right. The death of the company took place a long time ago but still, it’s sad. Many of the gear and the boating companies that were big when I was a newbie or paddling a lot are gone. Perception. Wavesport (now). Rapidstyle, etc.
Amazing to see the rise of the kayaking industry and then nearly meteoric fall. Yes, there are still a lot of boats but it’s nothing like it was back in the mid to late 1990s when Riot, Wavesport, Perception, Dagger, and yes, even Savage, were all competing to make the most insane boat.
