HOBIE KAYAKS


LANAI (V) www.hobiekayaks.com $549


Simplicity and innovation define the Hobie Lanai, a paddle-powered kayak that boasts a surprisingly stable ride, given its tidy waterline. The Lanai combines the best attributes of smaller boats, including maneuverability, acceleration and skinny water access, with the stability usually found in far bigger kayaks. At only nine feet stem to stern, the Lanai is ideally suited to shorter paddlers but it also delivers a full-value ride to taller kayakers as well.
