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.

Features

Hobie Mirage Drive System

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!!!

Hobie sail kit

Sail Mount

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

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.
