Rod Bending's New Showroom Leongatha
We have started the move into our new showroom at 48 Bair St Leongatha. After 13 years in Inverloch, we have out grown our space or should I say that Hobie's extensive range has out grown our space. 650 square metres of retail space in the main street of Leongatha will allow us to present to you the full range of Hobie Kayaks, Eclipse, Trailers and Accessories in one location.
  If I said to you, hey buy a Hobie Eclipse 10.5 for $3350 Hobie Eclipse 12.0 $3490 and I will give you.... 1 x Board Cover 1 x Plug in Cart with Standard Wheels 1 x Rail Protector Kit
With a great weather forecast for Saturday 29th October 2016, (and a lunch time high tide), we will be on the Inlet Beach at the end of Pimble Ave for you to test drive the Hobie Eclipse and a selected range of Hobie Kayaks. Bookings are preferred (call David 0428637471), but you can rock to see the range on the water and where possible we will fit you in.
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.
Our blue water office is where our Hobie Kayaks do all the talking. Stability, comfort and the hands free operation of the Mirage Drive. Check out our video of what you will experience on water, then call David on 0428637471 to book your appointment.

The performance of the 2015 GT (Glide Performance) Mirage Drive has impressed all customers who have purchased the new 2015 series of Hobie Kayaks. Today, we upgraded a 2009 Pro Angler 14 Mirage Drive. Now this drive has had a hard life and done many hours of work on the water including 5 years of Bream and Bass Tournament Fishing.
A 17 foot Tandem Fishing Kayak weighing 104 kgs.....who would of thought???...the answer is Hobie! Of course. So we have seen the Hobie Videos and the blurbs...now it is time to test the Hobie Pro Angler 17....ROD BENDING STYLE! Our target fish is Estuary Perch and around the mangroves of Anderson Inlet is our destination.
When Jeff Findlay was considering electric motor options for his Hobie Pro Angler 14, he still wanted to be able to use the mirage drive in shallow water. He was impressed with all of the attributes of the Hobie Evolve motor from Torqeedo, lightweight, lithium waterproof battery, remote throttle with magnetic key connection, built in GPS with trip information and battery life and complete waterproof  in-hull wiring.
The new 2015 Pa12 is packed with many great features. Lets run through them.
Fishing out of one of Hobie’s Pro Angler 12- or 14’s is so much fun that Hobie is now making it possible for two anglers to share the experience in the same boat.  Introducing the Pro Angler 17T.  Three different configurations include traditional in-line tandem seating, face-to-face social tandem or solo, all with enough room for man’s best four-legged friend…and with plenty of space for standing, casting and fly fishing in comfort.
