This weekend I paddled the Double-twist with a friend. We paddled together with several friends in a variety of inflatable kayaks. The Twist is an easy boat to have fun in. It is sturdy and reliable and it comes in a beautiful shade of blue that just feels fun. It quickly and reliably inflates.
As we paddled out, we felt that we were sitting a bit too low so we propped ourselves up with the footrests and whatever else we could. Once on the water, the boat handled well but our buddies who were paddling the Helios II easily beat us in terms of speed.
When it was time to leave the water and clean and dry the boat, the Twist was a pleasure. It was simple to rinse out, dry out, deflate, and roll up into its small bag. We did notice that our friends in the Helios II had a few more challenges packing up their boat.
