Hobie Mirage Tandem Island Kayak

Sailing has never seemed so simple. When the wind blows, the Tandem Island flies across the water. The puff hits and the Hobie Mirage Tandem Island’s leeward ama chisels into the water, its efficient, square-topped mainsail immediately translating increased wind speed into extra boat speed. The Tandem Island’s two-piece carbon-fiber rig minimizes weight aloft—thus stiffening the ride—and both cockpits are fitted with steerage and sail-handling controls, allowing sailors of all abilities to share the experience. Best yet, the Tandem Island is equipped with enough hatches and on-deck stowage for multi-day escapes. No wind power or pedal through being stuck in irons with two MirageDrive 180s with ARC Cranks + Turbo Fins.  Available colors are Red Hibiscus and Ivory Dune
