The Southwind is a superb tandem (double) kayak. I've paddled several doubles on commercial tours, and the Southwind has been the most comfortable, easy to control, and large carrying capacity I've used. It's even pretty forgiving when paddled from the stern seat as a "solo" boat in calm winds, for example when going out for a bit of fishing. Workmanship is great, and the boat is rugged. If I didn't already have a double of my own and I wanted to buy one (or buy another...), I'd get a Southwind.
