Has anyone tried it?

It would be interesting to see!

Just like my solo bunny hop, only with TWO people on the groundretro

We actually did try it once, on a rented one-speed tandem. Couldn't get it off the ground and eventually fell over. In other words, exactly like my solo hop.
I would like to see it, though....

a couple friends of mine ride and race mtb tandem (usually win the class by default as there's virtually no competition). I caught up with them on training ride. THey were going in opposite direction, downhill and aired it about 6-8" over the rut. It wasn't the real bunny hop, where you first lift front and then suck rear in, more like 2 wheel jump. I doubt you'd be able to pull something on road tandem w/o suspension fork.
Track stand and U-Turn also.MrCelloBoy

I'm getting better at trackstanding with my partner on our Calfee Tetra Tetra. Takes serious trust.
Legend has it that Scot Nicol AKA Chuck ibis, could do a reverse, 3-point U-turn on a tandem with stoker.

1.) He's facing uphill, stops and backs up and to one side.

2.) Stops and goes forward back downhill!
