Hobie is another builder of quality fishing kayaks that we have a good bit of experience in. They are constantly innovating and listening to the kayak fishing community to improve their offerings. They have offered a lot of support to not just building fishing kayaks but also to the kayak sport fishing community.
The Lynx is an innovative pedal kayak with elevated seating that boasts extreme versatility, rugged performance, and a durable but lightweight design. The Mirage Lynx, born out of demand for a hard-sided version of the popular Hobie i11s, is incredibly versatile and up for wherever your day of fishing takes you. A true jack of all trades, the Mirage Lynx can take kayakers from fishing to sailing (easily install the Mirage Sail Kit) to relaxing on the water and even the beach. Simply remove the chairs and lounge away in the sand. The effortless speed of the MirageDrive 180 with Kick-Up Fins combined with the streamlined, sleek hull of the Lynx make for a truly epic ride. These boats feature an EPS Foam Core, wrapped in fiberglass, then wrapped in a Thermoformed plastic skin and deck pads applied on top. So you get a very stable floating platform that slides through the water effortlessly.
