I bought these to stabilize my Hobie Oasis Kayak for when I'm using the sail. They do a nice job of giving the stability and confidence to use the sail in higher 10 mph winds.

For the price of these you would think they would have been better built. First trip out the center brace turned letting the outrigger turn up. To fit this I had to install 1/2 well-nuts so the mounts could be tighten enough to hold the cross section. On this same trip one arm going to the outrigger broke loose from the piece going into the cross section letting that side out the outrigger to come off! Yes, came off while I was fishing in 40' of water in water or 45 degree. Not good. The piece that goes from the arm into cross section is glued, this glue didn't hold so to fix this I used a 3/16 bolt through the arm/plastic piece. Since I fixed these problems it works very well. The factory really need to address these problem before someone drowns from falling in while standing on the kayak while using these.

This AMA kit was meant for Hobie kayak but I was able to adapt for use on an Elie 12. Great stuff!

My wife and I have been sailing 2 Hobie REV 13 for 5 years. My wife decided to get the sidekicks this year, and loved them so much we bought a second set for my boat. We went out in long island sound this weekend in Stonington CT. The wind was steady and strong. We are delighted using the side kicks. Never felt like you would tip over, which I have done a few times without them. You could go much faster with them because you don't have to let up on the sail if the wind is too strong. I wish I bought these years ago, it adds so much to the experience. I also fish with my yak and it makes it much easier to sand up is you want to, you change the potion of the floats all the way down. The only issue I had is with one of the outrigger bars that slip into the pieces attached to the yak is very hard to get in and out. I think all I have to do is sand the hard plastic grip a little and it should be alright, but you would think hobbie equipment at $176.00 you would have a little better quality control. But overall we love them.

Q: I have a 2004 Hobie Mirage Tandem. Please let me know whether or not this outrigger kit is compatible with this older model. Thanks.
A: This kit should work on your kayak is long as you have a flat space on the gunwales on the side of the kayak to mount the ama outrigger bracket to the kayak.

Q: Will this fit on a Hobie Maui kayak?
A: Unfortunately it does not look like this will be compatible with a hobie maui simply due to the fact that there are no pre made cut outs for the outrigger to be screwed into.
