Jackson's Dynamic Duo

What tandem skydiving did for, well, skydiving, Jackson's Dynamic Duo is doing for whitewater kayaking: introducing new paddlers to the sport with an instructor close at hand. One tester took his girlfriend down a Class III section of the Rio Grande—sans dumping. "Kayaking is easy," she said. The Duo isn't the first K2, as these tandems are called, but Jackson nailed the balance and stability of the planing hull, making it a fun, responsive boat for the experienced paddler, too. 12', 65 lbs; $1,599; jacksonkayak.com
