For the Adventure Kayak, consider adding the Daggerboard for more control.

• Provides more responsive rudder control
• Necessary if you plan on using the sail kit
• Adds lateral resistance needed for upwind sailing
• For the Adventure Kayak, consider the Daggerboard

Easy to replace the old one. Just a few screws. Significant difference. Kayak becomes very responsive to any subtle change in rudder direction. ( Maybe too responsive when at slow speed when you are fishing and you have to make frequent small adjustements). Worth having. Not sure why this is not a standard feature

The Hobie Large Sailing Rudder Blade makes the yak so much more responsive! Very easy to install (didn't need the Youtube tutorials) and the ACK service was great.

I am not sure. I ordered the sailing rudder and turbo st fins installed when I bought my Oasis. The standard fins came with the boat as well as the standard rudder. The thing is the standard rudder I received and sailing rudder are the exact same, so who knows?

I love this rudder! It makes a huge difference in the consistency of the steering by holding its course much better. Of note: it is harder to use the twist & stow pulley system with the larger rudder. I followed the Hobie forum information and loosened the adjustment bolt in the rudder system and now it flips up & down with less effort. Also, if you own an inflatable, there is a specific rudder for it (81397101 i-Series Large Twist-n-Stow Rudder Blade).
