While tandem kayaks have been made before, it was time to make a modern tandem boat that is suitable for teaching in, for bringing friends, significant others, kids, and really opening up paddling to those who don’t want to go solo! This is a high performance tandem with all of the comfort, dryness, durability, ease of rolling, and outfitting of our top of the line Hero series.



Based on the Hero, and the concept that sometimes, two Heroes are better than one, this will be an easy boat to be confident in.

Personally, I (EJ), am excited to paddle it with my kids, my wife, and my friends!

It is my new teaching tool and my way to take class 1 or 2 boaters down class 3 with confidence.

Look for this boat on a river near you in December of 2008! Here are some specs and CAD Photos compliments of the man, the myth, and the legend of whitewater boat design, my design partner since 1994, David Knight….

Dynamic Duo Design Specs:
Length = 12 feet, Width = 26.5 inches, 142 gallons, 50-50 bow-to-stern volume ratio.
4 Fun Sized “Rocker” Style Cockpit in Stern (Up to 260 pound paddlers will fit)
Fun Sized “Rocker” Style Cockpit in Bow (Up to 200 pound paddlers will fit)
Weight of boat is assumed to be 65 lbs
Assume total optimum weight range is 265-500 lbs for both paddlers and boat.
Designed for optimum size/weight paddlers bow and stern, but to have good performance over a wide range of weights and distributions.
“Rocker” equivalent ergonomics for elbows and knees- very smooth and non-intrusive.
