We've put everything you need to get on the water in this exceptionally stable two-man ocean kayak package. Kayak hull constructed from rotomolded polyethylene. Bow and stern handles for easy transport. Two-piece paddle's ovalized aluminum shaft is light and comfortable to hold. Sturdy polypropylene blades are asymmetrical to improve paddling efficiency. Fully adjustable, nylon-covered backrests and foam padded seats at the bow and stern. Includes kayak, two paddles, two Comfort Plus seat backs and scupper plugs. Perfect for outings of a few hours in calm to light winds. Can be paddled solo or tandem. Accommodates a small child or dog for lots of family fun in the water. Extra-long hull is a great fit for larger paddlers. Three molded-in seat positions for versatile paddler configuration. Wide hull is a stable platform to fish or swim from - ideal for dogs. Maintenance-free self-bailing cockpit keeps your boat dry. Paddle blades can be feathered to 60 or kept straight. Fully adjustable padded backrests clip easily into your boat and provide added back support. Set of four scupper plugs keep water out of your boat on long paddles. USA and imported.
You and your kayaking pal are heading to the same place anyway, so you might as well load up in the Malibu Two XL Tandem Kayak and work together to get there. Ocean Kayak can't promise that you'll go faster, or that you'll even agree on what your destination is, but it can promise that the Malibu's a stable, comfortable boat that's capable of holding 2 adults and 1 youngster (or a pet, if you'd rather leave Jimmy Jr. at home to fend for himself). The Comfort Zone seats are movable, so you can set one up in the center if you're paddling all by your lonesome, and there are overlapping foot wells so you've always got something to push against, no matter where you're sitting. Bring a fishing pole and stash your paddle in the side paddle keepers, or stash some beach towels under the bungees and head out to spend the day at the secret beach. At 61 pounds, the Malibu isn't as light as a feather, but it makes up for it by being exceptionally durable, so it'll be around for a long time.
