A customer asked a question of me at our shop in Inverloch last week……….”I‘ve seen a lot about these Hobie Kayaks on the water. What makes them so special?”

 This question took me back to when I first purchased my first Hobie Kayak in 2005.

“You can Pedal, Paddle and Sail. The sit on top kayak is comfortable, stable, easy to paddle, pedal if you want to be hands free and a heap of fun”, I replied. “My young family has now grown up with Hobie Kayaks and enjoy every experience and adventure we have in them.”

I showed him the Pedal Drive which allows you to kayak hands free(Hobie Mirage Drive). This is how it works.


We took a look over the kayak, and I explained the features

  • Hull construction…..sit on top kayak
  • Hi back adjustable seat with inflatable lumbar support.
  • Twist and Stow Rudder System
  • Carrying handles
  • Storage… hull, stowage pockets and cargo area
  • Drink holder
  • Two piece paddle
  • Gear Bucket
  • Rod holders

I introduced him to the Kayak Buyers Guide. He answered a few questions and we discussed his options. There was two models that would suit his needs.  We discussed the attributes of each and each model would suit his desired application. The next step was to compare them on the water. We organized a suitable time to test drive them on Anderson Inlet Inverloch.
