A quick intro, I got my first kayak (a Hobie Oasis) this past June and made the mistake of putting the little sail on it. to make the story short, Got a Tandem Island this past October and WHAT A BLAST! Thanks to a lot of the info posted here on this forum, I got my beach cart setup and a trailer from Academy and got it all working.

Great video. You guys were flying !!! It's amazing what a wet ride it can be on these islands. All you need is a set of Hakas (and a leash).

Surely a much different experience than sailing your Oasis.

Outstanding! These are "wet" boats, but they're exceptionally capable. Really nice video. Hope to see more like this one.

Thanks for the comments and yes it is a wet ride. Got Kokatat pants and a jacket to stay dry, so far so good. Hakas are next on the list. Maybe I should name it Bathtub! :D
