Tandem Boogie Design
The Tandem Boogie is an inflatable bodyboard made for two. In total it has a width of 34 inches which is more than the traditional width of 21 inches. Another major difference is the material. Other bodyboards are made from polypropylene along with other materials which are hard. The Tandem Boogie is made with high density PVC material and is militarises as it can resist corrosion which is caused by scratching, chemicals, weather and impact while in water. This is the same material which is used in the Zodiac boats by the US Military and Greenpeace.
The founders also created their own patent pending internal DAD ( Dynamic AIR Design) technology which is an amalgamation of filers that is cross woven in a vertical direction so that the boat will have its novel response and stiffness. There are also soft, strong and easy grip handles which have an in-built camera mount to capture all the memories you make while on the board. The tail makes it easy for riders to climb on and cut through the waves. The boards also have a dual stage pump, backpack and a maintenance kit. The Tandem Boogie is also lightweight and can be very efficiently rolled up into a backpack which is then inflated and deflated within mere minutes making it an easy buy.
