We got to test this AWESOME tandem at a "Day at The Park" outing. They wouldn't let me paddle with my daughter, and they wouldn't let my son paddle alone. Solution? This Awesome Kayak!!! I was a bit nervous because I have not paddled such a long boat in some time. My son is a beginner and my daughter is a rambunctious preschooler. I thought that at best we would end up out in the middle of the lake, capsized, bobbing until we got rescued. (the mom mind!)
I am so impressed with this kayak. It was a joy to paddle. My son and I had no problem paddling this yak at all! It was very easy to handle and maneuver. We fit in it VERY comfortably and it was very stable. My daughter was bouncing from side to side, so excited to be on the water. never once did I feel that we were going to tip, let alone flip it over. This is my dream yak and someday I am going to have one!
