Tandem Boogie Board Update | Shark Tank Season 12

The Clark family loves to go to the beach together, but they wanted to catch waves on the same boogie board. However, that’s a problem since traditional boards are made for one person. Because of this, they created boogie boards that can be used by two people at once! Will they boogie their way to a deal on Shark Tank Season 12? Find out in our Tandem Boogie update!

If you’re short on time, here’s a quick overview of what happened to Tandem Boogie after Shark Tank!

Tandem Boogie appeared on Shark Tank Season 12 and left with a deal from Robert Herjavec and Daniel Lubetzky for $100,000 for 35% equity. In terms of a Tandem Boogie update, the company has expanded its product line and re-branded to TANDM Surf since airing on Shark Tank.

Tandem Boogie Update

  • Entrepreneur: The Clark Family
  • Business: Boogie board for two

  • Result: $100,000 for 35% equity
  • Shark: Robert Herjavec and Daniel Lubetzky

Tandem Boogie was featured on Shark Tank Season 12 Episode 17 and pitched by the Clark family. After raising their family near the beach, the Clarks have created a two-person boogie board, allowing multiple people to ride the same wave.

At the time of the pitch on Shark Tank, Tandem Boogie had only been in business for two months. During that time, they managed to sell $43,000 worth of boogie boards.

Further, $31,000 of that came from a successful Kickstarter campaign. Going forward, the family hopes to expand their online presence and land in beach-related retail stores.

At the time of the pitch, it costs $150 to manufacture a board and it retails for $459.

Mark Cuban is the first shark to drop out because he’s concerned they may lack the ability to market the product sufficiently online.

Lori Greiner was next to go out, as she felt she wasn’t the right shark for the deal.

Kevin O’Leary felt that the water sports business was a tough one, and it didn’t interest him. For that reason, he too was out.

Next up is Robert Herjavec, who wants in, but not for 10%. At this point, Mr. Clark asks if guest shark Daniel Lubetzky would like to partner with Robert.

Daniel agrees to come in for 25% equity, but Robert says that’s not enough. He instead says he will do the deal with Daniel for 35% equity.

The family tried negotiating it down to 30%, but Robert and Daniel held firm, so the Clark family accepted their initial offer of $100,000 for 35% equity and left with a deal!

What happened to their company following Shark Tank Season 12? Keep reading our Tandem Boogie update to find out!

Our Tandem Boogie update research found that the company is still in business and has rebranded to TANDM Surf.

Additionally, it looks like the company has expanded its product line to include surfboards, paddleboards, flippers, and more.

Further, if you’re a fan of the brand, they also sell apparel merchandise.

During our Tandem Boogie update research we also found that if you’re in the Orange County, CA area, you can rent a board in person from their shop. If not, you can rent them by mail!

That’s a great way to test one out before investing, or if you prefer to not invest at all, and just rent as needed. There does appear to be a shipping fee charged if you go through the mail.

Check out all they have to offer on the TANDM Surf website. Some products are also available to purchase on Amazon.
