The Adventure Duet was designed as a fast adventure racing double. Steve Knowles from Sportzhub was the original inspiration - he needed a double that could be raced under any conditions.
The hull has been designed for use in a wide range of conditions - lake, river, and sea. It retains traditional multisport lines but with a 550mm wide hull it's also stable. This means it's extremely fast when the hammer is put down, but it's stable enough to enjoy on a sunny day with a mate.
Storage space is also a key factor with this kayak. The Duet comes standard with middle and rear bulkheads which allow you to carry overnight or adventure racing equipment.
The Duet is ideal for situations which require a mix of ability levels, or ages. Let the stronger, more experienced paddler take the rear seat, and the front paddler can go at it without fear of tipping. It's also great for teaching people the finer points of paddling technique - in this situation put the less experienced person in the back and let them copy you.

We work on a 3-4 week turnaround. In many cases we will be able to supply before the three weeks is up however, these are a hand-made product so they do take time to produce and we often have multiple orders in the system. we will advise you of an eta at the time of ordering.
Shipping and Pickup
We are based in Mount Maunganui and kayaks can be picked up directly from my workshop. Shipping throughout NZ and the world and will be charged at cost. Please ask for an estimate.
All fiberglass kayaks come with a white hull. This looks smart and doesn't show up as many scratches caused by rocks. The deck can be either a single, block colour (great if you want to display sponsors logo's) or your choice of two colours that are faded together. Please note that the colours are mixed in with the resin at the time of laying up the kayak so not everything is possible. At the time of ordering we will discuss the options with you and make recommendations if necessary.
Our composite kayaks have a white hull. If you would like a clear hull (to show off the beauty of the fibres) please be aware that micro bubbles and resin pockets may be visible. The deck is your choice of colour just like the fiberglass model. We prefer to have this coloured to prevent the sun from heating it up too much but if you wish I can also do the top with a clear coat.
