Hobie Tandem Adventure Island
The Hobie Tandem Island is an extremely fast sailing kayak. The Tandem Island is powered by a roller-furling, boomless mainsail. Both cockpits have steering and sail-control lines, making the Tandem Island ideal for partners of all abilities. And the boat’s generous storage space and carrying capacity means that you can go anywhere you want to. The tandem island has 2 mirage drive systems so that you can still take it on long trips if there is no wind. The Hobie Tandem Island is a masterpiece and if you love water sports you will love the Tandem AI.
Mirage Drive 180
The Hobie kayaks are famous for their Mirage Drive pedal system. This system consists of a pair of pedals that drive two rubber fins side to side to propel the kayak forward.
The Mirage System is silent while pedalling and creates no splash, it also allows you to effortlessly pedal the kayak with your feet while keeping your hands free. For 2017 Hobie have introdcued a simple 'pull' to reverse the drive and allow backwards drives as well as forwards drive. Brilliant!!!
Fully Adjustable, thick padded self inflation lumbar support for added comfort. Easy to fit and remove for transport.
All the kayaks in the Hobie range can take a sail to power your kayak. The optional Mirage Sail Kit attaches to the sail mount on the kayak. The sail maintains speed with or without peddling
Retractable Rudder System
Hobie's come with a Rudder that is easily controllable with a lever to steer as well as two pull handles on either side of the kayak: a "Down" handle to deploy the rudder and an "Up" handle to lift the rudder out of the water when in shallow water and for landing.
Twist & seal hatch
Twist and seal hatches are simple to use and are hinged so you will never have to worry about losing the cover. The hatches allow you to store equipment below deck.
Two piece paddle
Hobie's come complete with a two piece paddle that can be used for additional manoeuvrability or for when you are not peddling. When not in use the paddle can be stored in the handy hull paddle holder.
