A light East/Northeasterly to 5 knots with near calm seas this morning.
Try the inshore grounds from West Beach to Glenelg for whiting as well as the Somerton Reef area.
They’ve surfed. they’ve sailed. And to each sport, they have brought flat-out, live-fast, have-fun, adventure.
All of which is precisely what you get with each of our models of Hobie Kayaks. Of course, they have also brought something brilliantly new to the sport of kayaking: Pedals.
Each of Hobie Mirage model has the patented MirageDrive pedaling system. Which will take you further, faster, with a huge emphasis on fun.
Here's how the MirageDrive actually works: you pedal by stepping alternately left and right, not unlike an exercise stepper, to drive two underwater flippers. They work much like a penguin's fins to propel the Hobie Mirage with surprising speed and ease. All of which lets you go into kayaking. Feet first.
Leave it to Hobie to make kayaks that fly. Each Hobie Kayak is a seamless, roto-molded, polyethylene torpedo. Sturdy. Stable. And indeed, swift. The result? boats that effortlessly, gracefully, glide.
It's fast, it's sleek, it reduces wetness. All Hobie kayaks have a closed-deck design with self-draining scuppers and seats to keep you dry.
Not only are Hobie Kayaks easy to paddle, they're easy to pull. With sure-grip handles both fore and aft. For those rare moments when you're not paddling, most models offer on-deck paddle storage. The molded-in cup holders bring beverage service to the main cabin.
The Power of Hobie Mirage Drive
· The MirageDrive is easy to use, quiet and creates no splash.
· Leaves your hands free for fishing, photography or holding a drink.
· Your feet rest naturally on the pedals, for quick, effortless, back-and-forth motions.
· Much faster and more efficient than paddling.
· The large muscles in your legs produce more powerful propulsion versus using your arms on a paddled kayak.
· No annoying dripping water from a paddle
The simple kayak was born perfect. Light, nimble, and easy to use, kayaks paddled through the ages virtually unchanged. An old design maxim says that perfection is achieved when there is nothing left to remove. The Hobie design team response? Get rid of the paddle.
Welcome to the world of the Hobie MirageDrive®. The ungainly paddle is replaced by the sheer efficiency of the pedal. With the largest human muscle group now in play, kayaking becomes easier and more efficient than ever. Two pedals drive a pair of underwater fins – much like a penguin’s flippers. Whether snapping up to speed with a quick burst or steadily covering expanses of water, the MirageDrive allows effortless freedom and function.
