Hobie® Innovation – Founded in 1950 by one man, the visionary Hobie Alter, in his parent’s garage. Since then, Hobie has been in the business of shaping a unique lifestyle based around fun, water, and quality products.
From their headquarters in California, Hobie Cat Company and its global subsidiaries produce an impressive collection of watercraft for worldwide distribution. In addition to the sailboats for which they are well-known, Hobie Cat also offers stand-up-paddle boards, kayaks, and boats for both recreation and fishing.
It seems incredible that one man’s vision could provide so much fun for watermen and women the world over, but in that department, Hobie Alter stood alone. He didn’t just create toys, he created a way of life, a new way of looking at our watery world. The dream born on the beach in 1950 has become reality not just for Hobie but for new generations of dreamers, all of whom continue to spell fun in the sun, the surf and the sand with a flying capital H.
Aerosport Oka proudly offers the whole range of Hobie products: Stand Up Paddle boards, pedal boards MirageEclipseTM, recreational kayaks, fishing kayaks with MirageDrive® pedals, kayak trimaran with pedals and/or sail… Come and see them in store!

The MirageDrive 180°: Shift into a new dimension
Hobie’s bio-engineered MirageDrive propulsion system for kayaks was revolutionary in its inception in 1997 and has been evolving ever since.
The new forward-reverse propulsion system MirageDrive 180 produces full power in both directions and offers unprecedented maneuverability. The user pulls a shift cables to pivot the fins 180° from forward to reverse and back again. The dual fins provide shallow water access and easy shore landings by simply pushing one pedal forward.
Mirage Tandem Island: Sail, Pedal, Paddle, Fish
Sailing has never seemed so simple. When the wind blows, the Island Series boats fly across the water. Both the Mirage Adventure Island and the Mirage Tandem Island are impressively approachable. The larger Tandem Island has room for a friend. They are Hobie’s ultimate blue water hunters, capable of marlin teasing trolling speeds. Equip the accessory trampoline kit for extra space for friends and gear.
