March 16th, 2021 Posted by Hobie Fishing 0 comments on “Hobie Outback Kayak – How to add an H-Rail alongside your seat for increased stability on the water”

Now you can update your Hobie Outback to make it safer on the water.  Move easily from a seated to standing position with this H-rail Kit that you can easily install yourself. Watch the video. 

The H-Rail Bolt-On Kit (PN 84626104) allows you to add two long, raised sections of H-Rail alongside the seat of your 2019 or newer Hobie Outback. These longer, raised sections of H-Rail serve as a great assist when moving to and from a standing position and yield tons of extra H-Rail mounting space. The upgrade is a simple no-drill installation, requiring only a Phillips screwdriver. Each rail is 26 inches long and is designed with a slight curvature to match the outline of your kayak, maximizing space in the seating area.

Features:

• Easy installation; no drilling required

• Provides 26 in/66 cm of additional H-Rail per side

• Assists in moving from seated to a standing position

• Leaves steering handles unobstructed

• Curved rails maximize space in the seating area.

Available for purchase through your local Hobie Dealer: www.hobie.com/dealers

How to upgrade your Hobie Pro Angler 14 Kayak

Want to upgrade your Hobie Pro Angler 14?  For discerning anglers who demand it all – room, stability, performance, stealth, and comfort– the PA 14 stands alone. There’s a non-skid deck for standing—a huge advantage for sight fishing from a kayak—and veritable acres of H-Rail for mounting rod holders, electronics, and other important accessories. All this on a spacious 12, 14 or 17-foot platform, with no need for a gas tank.

The 12 and 14-foot models are available with Hobie’s unique MirageDrive 180 or the MirageDrive 360, both with Kick-Up Turbo Fins that provide efficient, worry-free, quiet propulsion.

In this video, Howie walks through his fully-rigged platform that’s capable of crossing over from saltwater to freshwater or inland salt in a snap. To view detailed installation videos of each accessory featured in this video, visit the Pro Angler Rigging Series playlist on Hobie’s YouTube channel or check out https://www.hobie.com/support/​ and look for your exact Pro Angler model.

Health Benefits of Kayaking at Pure Watersports

February 11th, 2021 Posted by Kayak Fishing 0 comments on “Health Benefits of Kayaking at Pure Watersports”

There are so many health benefits of kayaking that you would struggle to find a topic that did not apply to this activity. It is a great way to get outdoors and get your exercise in while still being within close reach of home or any destination. There are many sports that can be done while on the water such as kayaking. This sport has been around for thousands of years so you know it is good for you.

Water sports provide a lot of fun to people who enjoy them. Many people prefer to take a day trip on a kayak into the lake or river to enjoy a lazy afternoon or evening on a water sport. Some prefer to kayak from ashore, some sit on their deck and enjoy the water up close, and some are out at the lake or the river in a motorized boat to experience the water first hand. Whatever your preference, there is a water sport perfect for you. There are so many to choose from you will be amazed.

Kayaking provides an excellent way to build body strength and improve cardiovascular fitness. The resistance offered by the water is great for your heart and lungs. The resistance you get when you go up against the resistance in the water is similar to that which you get in a running position. Kayaking can be very good for the muscles in your legs as well as your abdominal muscles.

Kayaking also offers great flexibility to your muscles. You do not have to spend hours in the water trying to keep the same position because as soon as you get out of the water the positions do not have to be the same. This allows you to enjoy the water and at the same time get some much-needed flexibility. Kayaks have been known to loosen muscles and this can be very therapeutic for those who suffer from a variety of muscle-related ailments.

Kayaks also offer extreme resistance in the form of wind resistance. As you turn in the water, the resistance increases as the bow wave gathers behind you. This is a natural effect of turning in the water. Kayaking is a great exercise because you can obtain cardiovascular benefits from working hard while out in the water. It is also a form of relaxation and you will find yourself laughing and having fun when you are paddling in the ocean.

These are only a few of the health benefits of kayaking but it should be enough to convince anyone to try this sport. You can purchase quality kayaks that will provide you with all of these benefits. Make sure that you do a lot of research so that you purchase one that fits your lifestyle and needs. The last thing you want to do is buy a kayak that is too big or small for you. You will want to do plenty of testing before making a purchase so that you will have a great kayak that is going to serve you for many years to come.
