  • Perfect for day trip/weekend trip alone or with friends
  • Great for fishing and touring
  • Good fit for beginners, normal and expert level users
  • Safe, stable, great seat comfort

Cons

  • Not recommended for expeditions and surfing

The Swedish company presents its solo-tandem hybrid. It is fun, it is versatile and not to mention a high-performance recreational kayak. Just like the Solo version, the Tandem is easy to carry, store and haul thanks to its modularity. All you need to do is add a mid-section and go from Solo to a high-performance tandem in seconds. By adding another section, it becomes a triple. This can go on and in no time, you will have the perfect teambuilding tool.

When to Use?

The Point 65 Gemini Tandem sit-in kayak is perfect for day trips, weekend trips, but not so good for expeditions. You can use it in rivers, lakes and open waters as well for recreational fishing or touring, but not surfing.
