This kayak is just the right size...

I purchased the Hobie Sport for my wife. She enjoys fishing the flats and this kayak gives her the flexibiity to peddle most of the time. I started using it fishing the gulf. It's a lot easier to transport and can take the surf better than my WS T140. I love using this little kayak. It is limited in space but it allows me to paddle quickly through the surf zone, insert the peddles and I can keep up with most all but the quickest paddlers/peddlers. The center hatch provides plenty of room for a dry bag and for storage of gear (with some modifications to keep the gear from sliding around). The rails allow for storage of baits/lures/pliers/knife, etc without fear of falling unless in the worst of conditions. Tank well has sufficient room for a milk crate and all the storage associated with using one. The only modifications to the kayak itself I would recommend is upgrading the fins and rudder. The only limitation of the kayak is storage of big fish. I can rig a kayak fish bag into the tankwell easily and store plenty of snapper, etc but storing a cobia or kingfish is difficult due to space and weight capacity limitations. You do get a heck of a sleigh ride when you hook into a big fish.

Small package but great kayak

I own the Hobie Sport and I got it for one reason, I wanted to be able to load it by myself and shoot a disk across the parking lot. At 5'11 and 200 it works fine for me and maybe it is not as fast as the other Hobie Kayaks it is all about being able to toss it on top or my truck. My buddy has an Hobie Adventure and of course he is faster but not that much. I fish salt and lakes and it has not let me down.
