Wilderness Systems – Tarpon 120


The popular Tarpon 120 kayak has been re-modeled this year to further improve comfort, stability and performance. Fractionally longer, with updated fittings and fixtures including rigid carry handles and a removable dry storage hatch, this legend of a kayak is keeping it fresh!


Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 Sit On Top Kayak

They say you can’t have it all, but you can. Introducing the 2020 redesigned Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120.
The Tarpon 120 is for those who desire a versatile sit-on-top that is relatively short but performs well in dynamic ocean conditions, yet has plenty of room for any sized paddler and their gear.

The Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 is without question one of the most versatile Sit On Top Kayaks on the market today. Comes rigged with just about all you need to do just about anything you want. Wilderness have maintained the perfect kayak hull by maintaining a mono hull design with strengthening ridges which keeps the surface area down, and the hull speed up, unlike a number of other Tri Hull designs of the same size. Tracking is optimised with a generous keelson and ridges, and it’s light enough and manageable for easy car topping.

The Phase 3 Airpro seating system is one of the best on the market, with a height-adjustable backrest and an adjustable seat cushion that supports and raises the thighs to relieve lower back strain. Comfort truly is a priority on the Tarpon 120.
