Buying first hobie kayak
Hi all,

My name is Quinten and i'm from Zandvoort, the netherlands
aka: theMEANone

I'm new to the forum and the whole kayak thing,
and are about to buy my first Hobie kayak for fishing.

Its a Hobie Mirage Sport for a reasonable price.

That brings me to my first question,

Can anyone tell me what to pay special attention to
when buying a secondhand Hobie Kayak?

Thanks in advance!

Just check for the main features and make sure everything is intact. Hobie is a great sit-on-top kayak and i am sure you would love it.

Cheak the mirage drive in in good condition that's where all the money is.

Here are few things you should keep in mind before making a purchase.

1. Type of water you are gonna use your kayak on.
2. Build quality and material of the kayak.
3. Type of kayak - There are different kinds of kayak available in the market with different purpose. Some of them are - Sit-on-top kayak, sit-inside-kayak, inflatable kayak, etc.
4. No. of seats you require and kind of comfort offered by the manufacturer.
5. Storage facilities available in the kayak
6. Capacity of the kayak
7. Last but not least, what all accessories are included with the kayak.
