I am 11 years old and I love
this kayak. It is the best. My
parents made me take a
boating course and I use
walkie talkies with them. We
live on the bay. My friend has
seem me in it and now he
wants one. the peddles make it
easy and fast and keeps my
hands free to fish. My dog Pal
comes but she always jumps
out and swims home. I take
very good card to rise the
pedals off and I use the cart to
wheel it and I do it all myself.
thank you I love it.
My wife is 4'10" and the Hobie
Mirage Sport Kayak is perfect for
her. She loves it.
Hobie Mirage Sport, I love my mirage sport, just remember to
carry some spare parts. I was on Priest lake in north Idaho this
past week, Went up the canal to Upper Priest. While on Upper
Priest almost to the north end I came across a sandbar, I scraped
bottom only slightly but enough to dislodge the pin that keeps one
of the fins on. One of the fins came off, by luck I was close to a
remote camp ground and the fin was still in the slot in the kayak so
I didn't loose it. I went to shore, now what do I do, miles from
my camp and no spare parts I had to figure out a fix or paddle all
the way back with half a paddle. Just by pure luck I found a tent
spike wire someone had left behind, it was just the right size, I
sliped it in the hole bent it around and I was back in business. The
moral of the story is "carry spare parts" I was just really lucky.

Love my Mirage Sport Kayak. Most people say they have never
seen anything like it and they all want one, until they hear the
price. I love how it handles on the water. My friend and I can
carry hers and mine together a short distance at one time (we are
both 51 years old). Our last outing she said she wishes had one
like mine. I have a bad shoulder so this is the perfect answer for
me to remain active and be on the water. It had some dings in the
plastic from shipping but not worth the effort to return the kayak.
I highly recommend this to any and everyone.
Bought the Hobie Mirage Sport for my wife as a
birthday present. She enjoys the kayak as it is easy
to use, not too heavy for her and with the mirage
drive it is simple to operate and moves smoothly
through the water. ACK was easy to work with. The
kayak was delivered to my door as promised and it
was carefully packaged and arrived with no damage.
I would order from ACK again. Regards, KJ
This weekend was my third time out with my mirage
sport. When I first saw it I thought the sport would be
to small, but mow I'm glade I got it. At 66 yrs and bad
shoulders it's easer to load on my suv. At first it didn't
seem like it worked right, didn't go very fast, but now
after getting the seat adjusted rite and my weight
forward so it sits level in the water it works great. My
weight is pushing the limit at around 190 and it still
worked great. I was spending 3-4 hrs on the water and
not getting tired. I just ordered the intermedate st fins.
The Hobie Mirage Sport has
working out fine! We are having
a great time on the water.
Love the Hobie Outback
Sport...perfect for me as I am
52 inches tall. Great
workout!! So easy to get in
and out of and very easy to
use the Mirage Drive. I use
in the bay and it is so
stable. Also,Austin Kayak is
a wonderful company to work
with when buying anything.
Easy to load and easy to use.
Nimble and fun. Austin Kayak was
a pleasure to do business with
Great kayak product! Easy to
manuever, easy to pedal, and
adjustable for different
height individuals. Overall, a
Expensive, but worth it,
features well implemented.
What a wonderful kayak!!! I
can now really enjoy kayaking
year round as you can stay dry
peddling the Hobie Mirage
Sport kayak. Winter kayaking
on Lake Powell is heavenly as
the water is calm and the
locals have the lake to enjoy
without all the summer
traffic. Anyone with shoulder
issues would love this kayak.
It also allows you to take
pictures of the amazing wild
life on and around the lake.
Love my Hobie!!!!!!
We love our kayaks! They work beautifully!!
