The World’s Longest Kayak!!!

Posted by on January 30, 2013

L.L Bean and Point65 Kayaks recently teamed up to build the world’s longest kayak in celebration of L.L Bean’s 100th Anniversary!

The 100-person kayak stretched over 400ft long. It was constructed by combining 100 mid-sections of the modular Point65 Tequila Tandem sit-on-top. The event attracted paddlers from first-timers to seasoned veterans who somehow were able to make this monster move.

If you’ve ever paddled in a tandem kayak then you can appreciate the challenges associated with coordinating your paddle strokes with a partner. Imagine what it would be like to direct 100 people to paddle in concert! I’m not quite sure which is more impressive: the length of the kayak or the fact that they actually paddled it!!

Happy Paddling!
