We had great fun testing the Hobie Mirage Eclipse on Anderson Inlet last Saturday. Conditions were a little messy...a 3 knot outgoing tide with a 12-15knot WNW cross wind.
Main excellent ground into the tide and all who tested were impressed by the stability of both the 10.5 and the 12' Eclipse.
Steering was very responsive and will post a video soon.
A big thanks to Shane Osbourne for his great photos.
The Hobie Eclipse is one of the most exciting water products to hit the market in years. A stand up paddle board mixed with the Hobie Mirage drive. In this video, we take a look at the Eclipse and take it for a run on Andersons Inlet. It was a cold, windy day, and the current was heading out so it was a good time to see how it performs in less than ideal conditions. It's fair to say that it held up very well and even with the current and the wind its was very easy to use.
