Their Mother Was A Sailboat. Their Father Was A Surfboard.

For years now, the Hobie design team has been kayak-obsessed. They began tinkering with kayaks a few years ago. Lighter, faster, and easier to use were the key ingredients. It's amazing what you can do with polyethylene these days. In fact, in every one of the lightweight, roto-molded kayak hulls Hobie has managed to fit in 30 years of advanced nautical knowledge that no other company can. Your ride is stable with a perfectly balanced center-of-effort. Hobie's proprietary computer-aided design lets Hobie Kayaks track straighter and as a result, they fly like hydrodynamic torpedoes. Have a seat. More specifically, Hobie's ergonomically designed, fatigue-reducing, self-draining seat. The seats, by design, are comfort zones that are positioned to actually reduce pressure points on your legs. They're also positioned above the footwells to keep you dry. Each kayak comes with a forward-draining system that lets Hobie use fewer scuppers for better performance. Hobie Kayaks are light and entirely car-toppable. All of which means you can see the world in a Hobie Kayak. And leave the world behind. Contact Sunset Sailboat Company Inc. for more information.

Hobie Pursuit is so durable it's been referred to as a "44-pound battleship". The Hobie Pursuit is a fast, sleek, easy-to-handle, sit-on-top kayak. The roto-molded polyethylene hulls are sturdy and stable, and track just as straight and true through glassy lake surfaces as ocean chop.

    Hobie Mirage is kayaking's first full-body workout. Paddling meets pedaling. Hobie has crossed a roto-molded polyethylene, sit-on-top kayak, with a bicycle. The brains of the Hobie Mirage are right at your feet. In the form of Hobie's patent pending Hydro-Sail Drive propulsion system. Now you can pedal your kayak faster and farther. The Hobie Mirage also gives you choice. You can paddle it alone as a conventional kayak, pedal-drive it alone as a leg machine, or pedal and paddle and turn your little kayak into a jet boat. In pedal mode, steering is handled by an easy-to-operate, easy-to-reach, hull-mounted handle that works in tandem with the remote control kick-up rudder. All of which you can run from the comfort of Hobie's four-batten seat. Ahh, the joys of kayaking. With a wake!
