This year, we will have the honor and the privilege to display the new 2017 Lineup of Hobie Kayaks.  Hobie strives to be the best and is always innovating new ideas to better their customers experience in all facets while they are on the water.

We will also be showcasing our other products that will allow you to have the most enjoyable experiences during your boating exertions.

Hobie Kayaks

Hobie Mirage 180

the MirageDrive 180 produces full power in both directions and offers unprecedented maneuverability. The user can pull one of two shift cables to pivot the fins 180 degrees, almost instantly from forward to reverse and back again. The dual fins provide shallow water access and easy shore landings by simply pushing one pedal forward.

Hobie Eclipse

In 2016, Hobie released the Eclipse.  They engineered

Hobie Mirage Eclipse

Hobie Mirage Eclipse

a stand-up paddle board that can tackle anything that the water throws at it while also accommodating a newly designed mirage drive.  This unique Stand-up Paddle Board has a distinct shape that creates greater stability and superior water navigation.  Wind, waves, and wake are no match to the superior design of the Hobie Eclipse.  Not to mention with the addition of the new Mirage Drive, you can peddle through smooth, rough, or choppy waters.

The versatility of the Eclipse is unparalleled to all other Stand-up paddle boards on the market.  With the inclusion of the Mirage Drive they installed handle bars and a rudder!  The handle bars are reminiscent of the brakes on a bicycle.  To change directions simply squeeze the hand lever to go in the preferred direction.  However, if you would like to use the Eclipse like a regular Stand-up Paddle board and get a different style of core workout, you have that ability.  Remove the handle bars, install your cassette, lock your rudder into place, and grab your paddle and away you go.
