One, two or three people can paddle this one! This is the only one like it and it works. I am promoting it because I can see the versatility and extra value for families. The Tandemonium is by far the most stable kayak I have ever tested. It is kind of like a streamlined raft. This leads to fun. You can take a nap out in the middle of the lake, jump off and take a swim, stand up to fish or take photographs with confidence that you will stay on top or the water. Coupled with its rock solid stability, at 13 4, its maneuverability is amazing. Balanced perfectly for solo paddling and designed for multiple paddlers.This combination will fit some families that only want to buy one kayak because One, two or three people can use it at a time.
The Tandemonium features an upswept bow for waves, unbelievable speed and a high and dry ride for hours of comfort and fun. Our internationally famous designer Steve Brom ranks this kayak as the best and most versatile he has ever designed. People will discover hidden potential in the ways that the Tandemonium can be of service. See for yourself
Our Co-motion is the perfect kayak for smaller to mid size tandem paddlers, so we created the Tandemonium as the perfect water SUV for 3-person kayaking, or 2-person and a larger pet. The center seat is positioned in the perfect place for extra weight, and this kayak paddles extremely well in so many water types, from bays and lakes, to slow moving streams and rivers, as well as ocean and surf paddling. In my opinion, you will need to purchase the optional seats to be comfortable in this one.
Kayaks are available in several kinds of materials and with different construction methods:
Composite kayaks are made from fiberglass, kevlar and graphite in different combinations. Fiberglass, is very durable and makes a strong and economical kayak.Kevlar is lighter and very tough so less needs to be used to make a strong and very durable kayak. Graphite is even lighter than kevlar and is used in strategic locations on some models.
Plastic, Super Compound Linear Polyethylene, (SCL) is extremely tough and durable. It is used in the rotomolded models. Cuts or breaks are so rare I have never seen one, even on white water boats. UV inhibitors are blended in to protect from the sun. This is the most economical durable material Current Designs kayaks are built with. The down side is a little bit of flex and a bit more extra weight.
Thermoformed Composite System (TCS). These are made from an Acrylic and ABS plastic laminate. This plastic is stiffer and lighter than SCL polyethylene. It has the look and light weight of a fiberglass kayak, but costs less. For a more in depth description of these materials the Current Designs web site, or a catalog will help.
