Add the Hobie Kayak Sail to all Hobie Pro Angler and Hobie Mirage kayaks, including the Hobie Mirage Outback, Sport, Adventure, Revolution, Outfitter and Oasis to make an amazing little sailboat. You steer with your fingertips, control the main sheet with the other hand and pedal with your feet. The fins of the Mirage Drive provide lateral resistance. The two-piece mast features a boomless sail and a diagonal batten that allows it to be easily rolled up and stowed in the included storage bag. Does not work with the inflatable Hobie kayaks, there is a separate item available for the inflatable kayaks.

Added oversized rudder and turbo fins, and found noticeable improvement in kayak handling while under sail.
Be aware that the sail can only be used in very light winds. Over 15 mph and my revolution kayak is very hard to control and almost tips over. It is a fun little extra when the wind is light.
My first sailing experience ever and I'm 77 years old. This was a piece of cake to install, just plug it in. Plus the basic sailing is easy to get used to. Adds a new dimension to kayaking. Boring lakes can be fun again. Get the rudder and the outriggers for maximum experience.
The sail and mast appear to be of good quality. Only reason for only 4 stars is have not had sufficient wind to test yet.
