Hobie SUP: Diving with Manta Rays from a Paddle board!

June 2nd, 2018 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “Hobie SUP: Diving with Manta Rays from a Paddle board!”


“I was on a search for some waves, the waves were small and I saw what looked like a manta from shore. When I got in the water I realized there were about 12 or 13 mantas cruising around and half of them were babies. I’ve never seen anything like it before! The things we see & experience on a day to day basis here in Hawaii are pretty amazing!” Bullet Obra.

Hobie Inflatable Kayaks: FishFinder Installation

May 30th, 2018 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “Hobie Inflatable Kayaks: FishFinder Installation”


Howie walks you through the installation process of getting a full featured fish finder outfitted on a Hobie iSeries inflatable kayak. He used the i11S in this video but the kit will install on any Hobie inflatable kayak with the new Vantage seat. The head unit mounts onto an adjustable arm that attached to either of the Vantage seatbacks legs. The transducer mounts to the rudder blade of the Hobie Twist n Stow rudder, this mount gets the transducer deep into the water but also has the transducer lifting up and out of the water if needed. This kit also includes a nice small light weight lithium battery that can be strapped onto the back of the Vantage seatback.
