About Us "The Cat That Flies" February 6, 1970 Maximimum fun, minimal drag— for us, that’s always been the program, both from a boat-design perspective and as a guiding philosophy. It began with our founder Hobie Alter, an avid surfercum-sailor-cum-inventor who revolutionized two sports (and their related cultures)—surfing and sailing—and continues today with our innovative kayaks that are purposebuilt to make you smile. While the kayak shape is one of humanity’s most basic water-borne craft, they were traditionally built for hunting, fishing and locomotion—not recreation. Recent centuries...

redfish. Plus, they featured less drag through the water than anything else afloat. Taking the lessons we learned about powering through surf from sailboats and surfboards, Hobie’s designers combined beaching-friendly rotomolded polyethylene technology with a low-drag, stable hull form to create the Hobie Pursuit (1996), our first kayak. After some careful R&D, we realized that our arms and shoulders often burned-out before we were ready to head ashore. The breakthrough came in 1997 with a simple-yet-revolutionary idea: Instead of paddling, why not mount fins under the hull and connect them...

The Hobie Mirage Series ® What makes Hobie Kayaks the Best Ride At Hobie, maximizing good times is always the goal. We believe that kayaking should be accessible, rewarding and—above all else—fun. This starts with how you power yourself through the water. For many kayakers, the chore of paddling for long hours can threaten their fun factor. Plus, paddle splashes can scare fish or birds and distract from your peaceful, on-the-water experience. Why struggle to pull with your arms when it’s way more efficient to push with your legs? Hobie’s team figured out a better solution: lose the paddle...

1. MirageDrive Hobie’s MirageDrive was born of the theory that it’s easier to push something with your legs (big muscles) than it is to pull something with your upper body (smaller muscles). On Hobie Mirage series kayaks, traditional paddles are included but not needed. Instead, two pedals, mounted on levers just forward of your seat, are attached to powerful underwater fins via the MirageDrive’s sleek, lightweight design. When pedaled, these flexible fins assume the shape of a propeller blade, providing forward motion with each pedal stroke. And because the fin inverts its shape on the...

The Hobie Mirage Series Why Fish from a Hobie Mirage? Peace and quiet.
