Our Opinion

When looking for a kayak everyone thinks about what this brings to the table. What other items will they need to purchase in order to be able to transport the kayak, put together and so on. Rest assured that with Gemini, those thoughts don’t even need to pass by. The model can be stored under the bed, can be transported in the trunk of any car, so no need for a roof mounting system. What a relief! The model is almost impossible to turn upside down so if safety is what you are looking for, search no more.
