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.

Easy to use and works as advertised. Hardly turns the kayak into a sailboat, but lots of fun. Highly recommend AMA sidekick be utilized to prevent capsizing in stiff breezes.
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.
Customer service was outstanding and it was shipped fast. Haven't had a chance to try it out yet.
Added oversized rudder and turbo fins, and found noticeable improvement in kayak handling while under sail.
